Well, here in my part of New York state we have been having a few days of thunder storms--AND I DO NOT GO NEAR THE COMPUTER IN STORMS OR DURING THE THREAT OF STORMS--so I am way behind in reading my blogs and updating this site for you---I am trying to keep up with the Minnesota Blog Shop Hop and that is all I have been able to get in on the computer between storms---I DO HAVE LOTS OF PICTURES though!! So here goes----
I still needed to do this pattern for my local shop as a model--the applique blocks there was 9 of them--they used "fuse on web" I do not use that--I do needle turn applique--here we go:
And here is another set:

I actually started with the pear tree block first--as I figured it would be the hardest--trying to get all those little pieces of fabric to look like little pears--but I do have to say they were not as bad as I thought they would be????? Took them to the Quilt shop today so they can finish the quilt--oh and I used the Frosted Memories charm pack to make these up.
And I even got some sewing done for myself yesterday and I got the pillows made for my bed--I made the bright pink polka dot one and the dark green on on the right of the dolly--I used on old hankie to add some "charm" to the pillow and color:
Here is a close up of them.

I have alot of flower pictures to show you--but I must go get my shower now as it is getting rather late and I am ready to sit down and read the last issues of the Country Threads Magazines--maybe I will get back on tomorrow--but they are saying more thunder storms for the next two days--don't those weather men know I have alot of computer work to catch up on this week end--what is the matter with them???????

Have a great Sunday--Love, Just, Di

PS I did finally get my newest order of Cosmos thread today--I now have about 65 colors--they are all so pretty!!
