Did I mention I like weekends?


I do. I work weekdays and have weekends off to catch up on everything, including stitching.

The last 2 blocks are finished now with backs and borders. I contemplated folding them into envelope purses but couldn't bear to fold up the designs...


A nice Saturday morning is up early... drinking coffee... and dreaming up a new idea to start stitching on.




I have a small stack of these primitive 9-patch blocks and figured they make great starting bases. The pink one got a bird this morning. I think I will attempt a wreath of leaves and birds...
Have a happy relaxing weekend!

These squares have turned out so lovely ... love both of them equally too ... like, I love the stitching on the thread doodling one + the border so sets it off & I love the colours of the brown with red flowers one & the stitching is superb & that binding so sets it off with the leaves ... ummm, now I can't wait to see what you come up with for the pink & white nine patch block... you are such a talent & so inspire, so many of us ... keep stitching & enjoy your w/e... luv ...

I love all your colors, and of course the stitching is fab! You have given me an idea for Christmas. I might make a few blocks as gifts. They won't be as good as yours. I will think about this.
Happy weekends! Mary

you know , they really would have made excellent purses. I get you tho. I couldn't have folded them either....but I would love to have one that was a purse. (no , not a hint - dont you dare !)

What I DO SEE ! is a gorgeous quilt where you save these and put them all together later.

GORGEOUS !

Love this new look .

seriously - BIG LOVE

I love the one above the bird. It's a perfect combination of applique and embroidery.
