my flowers are just pretty petals right now--
did these while I did laundry down at the laundry room today--
my 'eyes' where too tired to stitch the petals right now--
so sooooon??????

And Pink Betty was a humming away again today--
Today I finally--
finally put these bom blocks together--
I did these blocks a couple years ago--
and they have waited patiently for me to put them all together--
I loved embroidering them and loved them when they were done--
and now I love them all over again and really really wonder why it took me so long to make them into a small quilt??????????
I used a jelly roll of Dogwood for the lattice--
only I had to cut them to 1 1/2" wide--!!!!!

Yesterday was my Anne's day here--
we did hand quilt for an hour,
then she took me grocery shopping--
so now Miss Gracie and I can 'hole' up in here and keep on working for while!!!!
And what is on the 'plan' for tomorrow??????
Hummmm--you will just have to 'tune' in to see!!!!!
OH-- and of course that lovely Miss Gracie!!!


  1. Very nice!! Love the "stitchery" quilt

  2. Oooh pretty!! You can pretend you are a flower girl and throw petals around. I think I have 2 1/2 blocks left to do in VV's. Need to pull those out--I love it too.

  3. Nice petals and I am sure they will be flowers soon.
    Love the stitcheries you have made into a quilt. You have done well as my are still in a folder on my computer waiting to be downloaded. Had forgotten about them. thanks for the reminder.

  5. Being able to hole up a while longer is a good thing! Oh that is a charming stitchery quilt for sure. Will be lovely on your wall for Spring.

  6. Well I just can't wait to see what you will be up to next! I love it when you find something you did and set it aside and almost forgot about it - and when you pull it out you fall in love all over again! I'm excited for you!! Kiss Miss Gracie for me!

  7. Those stitcheries are gorgeous, such a lot of detail too, very nice!! Glad that you re-fell in love with them after all this time!!

  8. Your Verandah Views top looks great! I was so glad when I finally got mine put together! :0)
