A finish, a start, and a few other things!

I am so happy to report that I finished Sunflower Gatherings!  I really love this quilt and now I can't wait to get it quilted so I can hang it up!  

 My goal was to get Sunflower finished up so that I could start in on A Primitive Garden.  If you want to join in on this one, we are doing a Sew Along (officially starting this fall).  We will be posting on Instagram and Facebook.  Here are the flowers all cut out and ready to go.  I still need to figure out which greens to use on all of the stems and leaves.
 Some backgrounds that I drug out - still trying to decide if I like them all.  I don't have enough yardage for all 4 borders, so will have to shop for a couple more.

Callie is the one who is usually in this basket, but Ozzie took over to watch me trace my pattern onto Steam A Seam.  Doesn't he look interested?!

I just had to share these cute bees!  They are made out of beeswax by my friend Lois.  She is making us molds for these so we can make our own and sell them at shows.  Aren't they perfect?  That was a fun mail day!
 And look at this one!  It is so stinking cute.  Take a look at her website, she has this and many more - all are just wonderful.

Ok, gotta go, so they can work on my computer some more.  That is getting extremely old.  So sick of it, and I just don't understand why no one can get it straightened out.  I keep thinking we are getting closer, then it seems that something else happens.  Cross your fingers for me!

Have a great day!

    My sis is making the garden quilt I would love to too, but I need to finish something..... blush! I will enjoy following your progress.

  2. I agree - Ozzie is definitely interested in what you are working on and that basket can keep his toes and tails out of "trouble"!

  3. WooHoo!! Wonderful finish!!
    Have to shop for fabric? Oh, shucks.
    Ozzie looks really interested--in something inside the basket.
