Photos: Mom's quilt "And A Yard of This One" and my folks' puppies Daisy and Holly.

I come from a family of crafters, so it's only natural that they're having a quilter's challenge. When she found out she would just have to e-mail a picture of the finished piece to the relative organizing it instead of sending the finished piece off by postal mail, she called me to walk her through attaching image files to an e-mail message.

I almost choked at downloading 6MB for five photos, but the finished piece is so cool I decided to share a slightly edited copy of her photo of the full quilt with you. (It's been sized down and I replaced the original background with clouds.) And the puppies, because revme loves to see photos of them. Heh.

Mom's challenge quilt: "And A Yard of This One", pattern from When Quilters Gather: 20 Patterns of Piecers at Play. I'm pretty sure that plaid print at the bottom used to be a skirt I had in middle school. Photo taken by Barbara Gutierrez, 12 January 2006.

Fresh from the groomers, it's Daisy and Holly! Note that Daisy let the groomers trim her face so she doesn't have the shaggy face she did when we visited in December. Photo taken by Sarah Gutierrez, 6 January 2006.
