I am feeling overwhelmed with all the projects I have going on and deadlines are involved. So what does one do, pull out some old applique and start stitching.
My baby quilts for the twins are coming along. The only problem is my math was off and I am short about 2 yards of fabric. If anyone has the black and white polka dot I would love to buy some from you. It's called Mellow Yellow by Red Rooster. Please contact me if you can help!
I have another fabric I can use but really wanted the dots.......
I have been in charge of the 10" square fabric swap at my guild this year. Our year ends in June so this will be the end of the swap. I think the ladies enjoyed it and have lots and lots of 10" squares to make some awesome quilts.
Imagine my surprise when one of the swappers, Diana gave me a gift in this beautiful box.
How pretty is this little bundle of fabric, tied with bow?
The have a beautiful hand and will need to go into a special project.
This morning as I was unpacking I found this Thank You note from another swapper, Marianne.
Look what I found inside! Some gorgeous vintage fabrics! I bought a bunch of her scraps at the quilt show and will be showing them to you at another time.
I would love yardage of all of them!
Thank you ladies, unexpected gifts are the best!
My flowers are slowly coming to life. There is a spot in the tree line that I plant leftovers or things that are in the way and I have no where else to put them.
Every year it is a surprise to see what makes it through the winter.
I love these little white flowers that are all around the trees out back. I didn't plant them but they are there every year.
These strange looking leaves are a plant called Dog Tooth Violet. It's a part of the lily family and the flowers are yellow (on mine). The birds planted these. The flowers come and go very quickly so I check them every day. Stay tuned, I will snap a picture to show you.
