My garden continues to bloom this week. I made flowers for myself, and flowers for a swap. Can you guess which is which? If you'd like to see more pretty flowers, check out Karen's blog for links. Karen graciously organizes us each week, and we'd love to have you join us. It really is One Flower Wednesday, so don't feel you have to spend a lot of time, but they are addicting!
Today I went shopping for the border fabric for this. I have a very bad habit of doing most of my shopping in the fat quarter section, and then I have to go back for the final touches. But that's okay, because I didn't choose anything close to what I thought I wanted for the borders. I hope to finish this flimsy tomorrow.
I've also been making blocks for bees:
I"ve been itching to start a new cross stitch project, but I decided I had to finish a few UFO's first. I didn't realize how many I had started.
Shortly after I started quilting, an older friend gave me a huge stack of quilting books and magazines. I also found a bag that contained a stack of siggy blocks, made in the late 80's, and this block. It's a basket pattern with a cat. If you know me at all, you know I love basket blocks, and I love cats. I think I'll make this into a small cushion!
Sorry, you'll have to turn sideways to see this. Blogger is giving me fits tonight, and I am not going to try to reload this pic.
Di had a giveaway for these scissors on her blog a couple of weeks ago. I didn't win, but today I found some at my LQS!
Don't forget that this week is Friday Night Sew In. You're all invited to join us, so just click on the link to sign up. You know you want to.....
