Rudolph Meets The Grinch

I finished the Grinch quilt so that meant a photo trip for hubby and me. Fun!
The Rudolph quilt also came along to hopefully get a better photo of it.
We ended up in Snow Canyon and Upper Galoot for quilt and Christmas photos.
Yes, I'm late getting our Christmas cards mailed. Very, very, very late!

Dang that camera timer! I couldn't seem to run fast enough before it started taking photos.


The Grinch and Max



I didn't hand embroider the face. I used one of the special stitches on my machine to make the lines.
Much easier on my hands!


Poor Max! That Grinch may just drop the ornament on him!


A little better photo of Rudolph and his buddies.
White background fabric is tough to photograph.


This roadrunner entertained us for a few minutes. He was bobbing his tail up and down,
fluffing up, and keeping a watchful eye on us. I think he was posing for the camera!



My sister's emergency preparedness book, Prepare Your Family For Survival,
 has finally been published. Woohoo! It's a great book to have on hand or to give as a gift.


I'm all done Christmas shopping. How about you?

***smiling*** Your Grinch quilt is beyond cute! It's like peeking in through a window. And the reindeer quilt looks great outdoors. Camera timers count lots faster than we do...haha. But you got a fun photo anyway. Roadrunner is a handsome ham too.

Oh my gosh, that quilt is so dang beautiful! I love the dog at the bottom of the quilt. The design is so awesome with the Grinch holding the next ornament to place on the tree. You are so creative!

Fun photos and it looks like a great place to hike.
That is a fun quilt and I like the machine stitching, I was wondering if I could do that on some pieces.

I'm glad your husband is part of your quilting addiction, even if it's just for photos. You always have great pictures, but I do enjoy your photo trips. Both quilts are outstanding. Great detailing by machine.

Yes! Exactly the Carol I touch I was talking about! It's perfect! Little Max is adorable, so clueless to the whole Grinch affair. Congratulations to your sister on the publication of her book.
