2 Year Project.

I managed to finish a baby quilt that I started 2 years ago.  This little boy will finally get his “baby quilt”.

20170521_173248Like I’ve said many times, life does tend to keep you busy with unplanned illnesses or commitments that are unavoidable.

But I’m thinking this little great, great nephew of ours will still be able to enjoy his blanket.

20170521_180549 (2)I chose a Dalmatian print for the backing and binding. Plus I added a dog, that I traced along with a bone for him and machine embroidered them onto the quilt.

I have about 3 more baby quilts, along with one for my oldest daughter, plus one for my youngest daughter,  that would like one for her school fund raiser next year.   I’d  better get busy.

Floral Friday.

Our water fountain was made into a planter. It’s one of my favorites spots in my garden. As we continue to pretty up my garden area I’ll share more photos of the different areas.

Have a great weekend.❤️💜❤️💜

Two Down, Many to Go.

Finishing projects is always on my list, but life seems to keep me busy with other things.

This baby quilt was made from my pink stash that I wanted to use up.  It came out better than I thought it would.

I machine appliqued some flowers to add a little more interest.  The quilt is a gift for someone that lives far away….it’s a surprise.

Hope you had a great Easter.

Our Easter is always a fun time with family.  We always have great food and lots of fun with our confetti filled eggs, which make quite a mess.

This year our oldest daughter made a fruit pizza, that looked like a decorated Easter egg and was quite good.  She did a wonderful job of decorating the  pizza with all the different fruit.

Our youngest daughter and her hubby made our favorite banana pudding.

And of course we had our annual egg decorating contest, which made all of us very competitive.  We asked our Facebook friends to vote for their favorite egg.

2 eggs decorated

And the first  place winner was:lamb 2017

My roses are finally blooming and because of all the rain we have had, they look healthy and quite pretty.

The top rose is my favorite and is a climbing rose.

This second rose starts out a creamy white and then it blushes as it matures.

My last rose is so unique in that the outside of the petal is cream colored and the inside of the petal is a bright red.♥♥♥♥
