April 23, flowers, flowers and little dresses

Spring has come into full swing here in the south. That’s means weeds ,and more weeds besides the mulching that needs to be done! I also forget from one spring to the next how achy muscles get after a winter. I also forget that I’m going to keep up with workouts so I don’t get sore….

Earlier in a post I posted a picture of a dormant flowerbed..

 This was my flowerbed bed this morning.

Here are some flowers close up. The Amaryllises did really good this year.

  Can you see that I still have some work that’s needs done?

  This little fella seemed to enjoy watching what going on in the flowerbed.

I did get the rest of my blocks done on the nosegay blocks. I also got a little dress made for a friend . These little dresses are so fun to make.

Back to work… Have a great day! Deb

Mar.4 blocks and tops and still some unfinished projects..

There’s so many things you can do with a machine and fabric, that I have a problem with keeping at one project at a time….

Here is the Fire hosta island top , I still have the one side to finishe up,I have all the difficult parts done.

Did this dress for my great niece. She was needing some school dresses. I finished up two for her.

This is a queen size top that I put together on my trip. It will be tied and given to a young couple that are to be married in April. They will be livening in Montana,so I will put heavier batting in it than what I would for hand quilting.

Once again the scrap box was fussing that it was sitting on the shelf for too long! These melons are  fun to make, and before I knew it,I had made a stack of them. I really like doing the stitching around them. I had to make a starch out of Epsom salt to stiffen the bottom fabric for it wanted to ripple at the corners way too much. And I didn’t have enough regular starch..Works great, This is a 12.5 ” block.

Now back to sewing, Deb
