Hey---I did it---got last's months -- May's block--finished for the First Friday Freebie--done before this months is due out---like tomorrow!!!! But--hey---I did get it done before......!!!!
Here is the design---I did mine in Fiona thread--a teal shaded one---and you will never guess what I stitched this design too?????
No not a pillow--
No not a wall hanging--
No not a quilt block--
No not on a towel--
No not a picture to be framed for the wall--
This is it---
YEP---I stitched it to the front of a T-shirt--it was fun--and now I have something that no body else has ( I think!!!!) !!!!!!
At mail call today---these two books got here---
I got these on Amazon--and I got the other Civil war book on the love letter at my quilt shop--so now I can make 242 blocks--using all those new civil war prints--some year!!!!
And this came--
and look what I found inside---
Kathleen Tracy even signed it for me---I have joined her miniature challenge and signed up for her new block of the month for the next six months and she sends you a new pattern each month starting in June---the challenge is a flickr group and that is free.
This months design is the Irish chain and I did get most of the pieces for that one cut today--now to hand piece them!!!!
-- Today --I also got the Flirting with Flowers block prepped and all the applique is done--now to do the embroidery on that and it will be done--also prepped two other blocks--one is a bom--but the other is just a "I wanta make" block!!!!!!
Look who found the new little black rocker????? Miss Annie Doll---I got her and Mr. Annie Doll at a craft show a few years ago over in our park---I just love them (it was too crowded Miss Annie said when Mr Annie was in the chair too--so he got banded to a basket on the other side of the room!!!!
Here is my outside picture for today---
these are peach colored iris--from a little side garden at the end of the building that I care for!!! I can not believe HOW large the iris blooms are this year----have you noticed if they are larger than normal in your area---or do mine just "love" me more--so they are really being good this year!!!!!!
Well I am off to see what kind of trouble I can get into tonight on other's blog sites-- have a happy day tomorrow----OH--Saturday is Village garage day sales here in town---who would like to come and join Little sister and me treasure hunting--oh--you better wear a rain coat---darn!!!!!!
