Well, hello, and welcome to any new viewers and hopefully to old friends. Since my last update, I have completed a few things. I'll share them on down the page. I have also started another "new" craft for me. I have long admired my friend's, Charlene's, cross-stitching projects. She is working on this enormous pattern, and I fell in love with wanting to do something. So, we headed off to a nearby store, and I bought my first cross stitch pattern. I have a lot of things still to learn to make a "perfect" piece, but I am enjoying the process, and I am doing pretty good for my first time. I can where I screwed up, but someone is going to have to have their magnifying glass out to locate all of them. LOL
I have commented before how I enjoy doing some kind of handwork in the evening while watching TV. From hand quilting quilts, crocheting, and knitting projects. But, cross-stitching is becoming my evening project. Lot's of hours in this little thing I am doing, but I am almost done!!!
I have also been able to complete another of my quilt challenges from my on line quilt group. This was our May Challenge. Funny story here: I was fabric shopping for my No. 3 daughter's table runner. No. 1 daughter that I was shopping with, picked up this table runner pattern at the quilt store that would be fun to make for daughter No. 3. So I purchased it. Well, you probably guessed it, if I had any luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all. again LOL
Two days later, our May's challenge turned out to be the same pattern that I had just paid $10.00 for, and our group was given a free pattern to download. I did change it up a bit:-) Well, I guess it saved on printer ink and paper:-) That's okay, because I love my patterns..........can't have enough patterns, right?
I really loved doing the Prairie Points from our April Challenge, so I added it to the edges.
Oh, this is the back view, and oh yes, these our lovely Mother's Day flowers from Daughter No. 3
I am one lucky mom, in more ways than I can count.
Aren't these spectacular? There are little white flowers that bloomed in the middle of the purple!!!
Aren't these fabrics wonderful?
Stop back soon, I am hoping to get started on these fabrics in the next couple of hours. I am working on a simple, quick project...........hopefully that is what it turns out to be. LOL I will share with you what I am making, and I will include the pattern. This should be a quick weekend project..................try it, you may like it.
Thanks for the visit.............please leave a comment, and if you have a blog.........include it.........
