You can see my poor attempt to quilt it. The polar bear reminds me of AK and my Son who loved polar bears as a kid.
Here's a few pics from our trip to AK... we had such a good time.
Alaskan beauty - that's the back of my son's head lower left.
This is my son the "First Shirt". He's an advisor, and councilor to Air Force personnel who get into trouble. He's been in over 20 years now. We are so proud of him. And his daughter , the graduate! The first of our grands to graduate high school! We are very proud of her, too.
More Alaskan beauty! We were there May 7-14 and there were still snowbanks all over. This is in the mountains around Anchorage, way more snow than down in the city.
This is a family portrait at graduation. L to R: the graduate = Alyssa, DIL & mom = Michelle, dad = Scot, our son, and brother of the graduate = Christopher, our grandson (who is an interesting story, too, but for another time.) Aren't they a handsome bunch... more Alaskan Beauties! (The graduate caught one of the balloons as they fell from the 2012 - it's a 2 upside down.)
And this is the graduate! Isn't she pretty? I think so, and she has nice manners, a great bubbly personality and such a helpful girl. (She gave up parties with her friends to entertain her 2 grannies and her gramps. (So thoughtful! Brings tears to my eyes!)
Well, I know this is supposed to be a quilting blog, and I do have more pictures of Alaska, and the fabric I bought there. You won't want to miss that! But I'll have to do it next time. The Hubs is bugging me to relinquish this machine. What is he thinking?
Until next time...
