I don't know how I timed this picture right, but he has let go of the string and the arrow is leaving the bow. That bow is a work of art in it's own right. Hand made to his specifications. Cost a pretty penny to, but we won't go into the ruckus that caused around here. Let's just hope he can bring home something we can eat with the thing.

So I'm not really a quilter, but when inspiration hits I usually follow it. I made this for a swap, but I just had to share it. The tree represents the tree Odin was hung on for 9 days in Norse mythology. During those 9 days he learned the Runes, which are quilted around the edge of the quilt. On the tree is a bird, squirrel, and lizard to represent the different elements. I appliqued the tree, leaves, and creatures on to the quilt top and left the edges raw so they will fray a bit for texture. The back is the solid brown you see around the edges. The Runes are quilted in a very cool fall toned variegated thread. I'm super proud of this and can't wait to send it off.

The hubby grew out his hair on purpose for the wedding, but now he wears it short, and yes we are hippys of sorts, he is wearing birkenstocks. It was a wonderful day and each year that goes by makes it seem even better.
