Saw this in a magazine and just had to try it.

Flowers for my garden.

They are made out of old shoe horns... Remember the kind you got when you went to a REAL shoe store back in the day! They actually all have shoe store names on them... Found these gems in Canton, TX when I was there.

Lisa Bongean's stitch along...

Did you know Lisa Bongean, Primitive Gatherings is having a stitch along ?
You can even do it in 2 different ways. One, with a wool appliqué in middle and the other a pieced version.
She is on part 3, of 4 (I believe). I printed out each one and set them aside. Last night I brought them all out. You know that rule that everyone tells you... Please read ALL directions before you start... Hahhahaha, well... I just started. Cutting the pieced version out and then sewing.... Guess what size it is... Miniature! I am not a big fan a extra small quilts.
I thought, ok, I can do this. Did part 1.. Ok.. Part 2... Still ok... Part 3... I couldn't understand the directions. I read and re-read.. Sewed and un sewed. Still nothing. I know there were corrections on her blog, I understood those.. I guess I was OVER it.
So here it is as far as I could take it.
I put binding on this and finished her up.

Finished size of this... 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"

National Doggie Day....

Lolli and Mia... My Grand-doggies... Mia is actually the one I named my blog after... Long time ago.. Before Lolli was even in the picture. Ohhh, I miss them soo.. They now live in Texas. ��


My little energy bites snacks were scrumptious... Made them with white and dark chic chips. I didn't have chia seeds so I used hemp seeds. Yum!

Brown & White....

Finished another one...

It is just amazing how a quilt comes alive after it's quilted...

Truth... I was hesitant about wasting time & $$ on quilting this guy... It just wasn't calling me. But I am sure glad I did, because it love it now!

Crimson and Clover....

This is the name my friend gave this quilt...

I love it. It's my first attempt at appliqué on a quilt. I'm a little better now, practice is the key. I have since done a couple of other ones... Getting a little better each time.
