TWO MORE DONE--

ON TIME--
I got the last 2 Bee blocks done before the next ones are out--
I like brown bunnies--
with blue eyes!!

and--
I just had to have a red tractor--
knew from day one that my tractor would be red--
so somewhere in my memory there must of been a red one!!!
Wonder what the next two blocks will be???
Think I will head over  to the Moda Bake Shoppe and see???

I also go another baby sweater finished--
I now have 16 waiting to find new homes--
still not sure where to send them this year for donations???

ON TIME--

I can't believe that I have been able to keep up
with the BEE blocks each week--
maybe there is 'hope' for me after all!!
Here is last weeks blocks--
Now that mail box is all me--
the original pattern is just the flower--
but you know me--
have to change everything--
so finally decided on a mail box and to name my farm!!
and a picnic has to have a red checked table cloth !!!!
The next 2 blocks are posted and I have just copied them off--
so need to go and get them prepped for this weeks sewing!!


and I forgot to show you 2 new treasures from out free table down stairs--
got this nice cart and was thinking about it being a sewing cady-
but Bubbles and his tank won out!!
And this cute stool walked home with me the other day--
I love stools and had to sell all my little wooden ones when I moved down here nearly a year ago now--

Love and Laughter, di
I believe this place is as good as any to eat my peanut--said the squirrel the other day while I was down on the dock--(I am the animal whisper!!!)

A TISKET! A TASKET!

I got another basket block all embroidered--
I do love these when they are done--
but there is a lot of stitching on each one--
along with figuring out the color of the flowers each time--
I did go through all my embroidery colors (over 400) and took out about 5 reds, 5 pinks, 5 greens, 5-6 browns,5 yellows, 5 blues, and 5 oranges to match the 30's colors I had used in the fabric on the blocks and have each color in a zip lock bag--and that has helped alot!!

I am now working on the Bee blocks--
and 'yes' I did change each one a bit--
hope to have them done by Sunday to show you-- as the next 2 blocks will be out by then--
and I have started the next hand quilting project!!
and I am always knitting on a baby sweater--
oh and wait--it is the week end and now it is time to work on my monthly counted cross stitch project--
and --
I am trying to sew on the machine each day--
0ohhhh--and wait--
I need to get another dress designed for this months color of hot pink and lime green--
and then there is ??????

So now when I am suppose to read the 5 books that I got on the library van on Thursday--
good thing I am retired and have all the time in the world!!!!lol

And I have to go for my walk each day and down on the dock and watch the critters and the birds each day--
Like Lurch--he follows the fishermen around in hopes they will throw him some bait fish they just caught!!
Nothing like a lazy bird!!!
have a great week end--
love and laughter, di

HEY----!!!!

Another quilt is all finished--
I believe this was a couple mini charm packs that I just sewed together randomly into 9 patches --
and then had the perfect fabric for the borders--
I hand quilted around each of the flower groups on this border-
a bit more on the hand quilting designs in the center of the quilt
And remember this fox fabric???
it is on the back of this quilt--

so another project is finished--
and I got my last hand basted quilt out today and have decided on the handquilting designs for that one--
but now need to be thinking about whether to put some already made blocks into quilt tops for basting or to do up some more tops I have in the closet that are waiting for batting, backing, and basting????????
love and laughter, di
