WIP day :D

Hi there! I got some more work done today on my yellow/blue log cabin quilt. I kept running out of fabric, so I had to buy an extra 10 fat quarters to finish this off! I didn't realize 90 blocks took so much fabric. So today I cut out the last 5 rows of strips for these blocks and started sewing them on. I have 3 more rows to sew on then all 90 blocks are done :D I like the way it's turning out so far. Jessie's horses are helping me sew as you can see :D
I also am in a birthday block exchange so this is one of my blocks for that! It is called Mosaic 3, off of Quilter's Cache. :D

Lemme see. I've also been working on the Cannon Beach piece, so I've been plugging away on it.
And this is Old McMary's, I am doing the outline of the barn... boring, but it'll be fun to fill it in with red. So pretty.


I got my friend hooked on cross stitching now. I took her to Joann's to get a floss box and needles and some DMC floss for her next project. A convert, alright! It's fun to teach her how to do it. She really likes it so far.


My bleeding hearts are blooming. They are one of my all time favorite flowers. Aren't they lovely?

Thank you for the Beautiful photos of the new blooms! I may just save it as my desktop if you don't mind?

When we lived in Georgia - our home had a "Bleeding Heart of Mary" plant that I loved! I haven't seen one yet here in our part of TX but when I do I am buying it! :c) ~Bonnie in SE Texas

You've been so busy - all of your works, quilting and stitched, are stunning! I adore bleeding hearts too and loved seeing yours! Mine must be about a month away, as I don't think they have even sprouted out of the ground yet. Brrr around here still.

Love all the quilting bits and pieces! It's so much fun to share the joy of stitching isn't it?

OK, I had a comment all typed out and it disappeared...

The log cabin is looking great! What a pretty color scheme. I like the log cabin pattern...I have a wall-hanging in my front entry, made by my Granma.

The bleeding hearts are gorgeous, aren't they? We have one and it's one of my favorite plants.

You are so lucky you have bleeding hearts already. It is so cold in NH, and we were just dumped with a foot of snow yesterday, I don't know when we will see these flowers. I have a bunch in front of my house and I love them.

Your quilts are so cool. I haven't done a log cabin quilt yet and really want to. I find all your work inspiring. :)

Your Bleeding Hearts are so very beautiful... They have always been one of my favourites... :-)
