Butterflies and Mushrooms

I think I'm not going to do any more quilting on this.

I have threads all over this thing...giggle.  It's so funny how I see things after the photo.

What I've been doing this week.

Watching mushrooms grow.  It's my new hobby.

Poor baby frog is having a bad hair day.

and be prepared to run!

I'll be linking up today with Angie.

Mother Day and other Goodies.

Doing a little quilting on the butterfly Pillow!

The little blue bags are from 31. They hold my large and small patterns perfectly.  This was from Mick for Mother's Day....guess I should tell him what he got me....giggle.

These are also from 31, but I haven't decided what to throw in them yet.

This sweet little box and drawing are from my daughter Shelley.
So Sweet.

She also gave me this terrific basket.
Not sure what all will actually end up in all my new containers, but I've definitely have a color theme going.

My son gave me me a Amazon Gift Card.  Always a welcome gift.  So far I've purchased a new hardback book, It's a Long Story by my favorite Willie Nelson.
No I haven't got to read it yet, because Big Mick is hogging it.  This is the first book he's actually read for pleasure.  Yet another new hobby for him.

Thinking of also getting me a pillow form from Amazon to stuff in my Butterfly.

Thanks so very much Brett and Shelley....Oh and you too Big Mickie :)

Fleece Blanket for Baby

I finished the border on my blanket.  It came out a little wavy, but there you go.
Hey, that's a finish!!

Here's the video with instructions if you want to try one.

Tartankiwi Butterfly

I made this Butterfly last August for 

The Tartankiwi

I can't believe it's been this long already.  I kept it on my design wall so I wouldn't forget it with intentions of making it into a pillow.

After 9 months, it has a border.

Thinking of this for the backing.

I got a new goody for my overflow of fabric...giggle.

I should live long enough to use it all...:)

I recognise that cat pose ....
"Do I have to pose again?
Ohhh go on then...." lol
Hope you have a great holiday and what a kind idea to hold a giveaway.
I am driving south to seek out pictures for an Australian blog pal who is researching her family.
I live within an hour of s church with family dedicated windows apparently and its unlikely she will ever manage a trip to see them.
I volunteered and am really looking forward to seeing what I can find for her!

2014 Designer Mystery

Center Block
2014 Designer Mystery Block of the Month

Designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.

Block 11 should be mailed before long.  I thought I would get a head start on the finishing design.  It's gorgeous.  All the blocks I've been working on will be on point including the center block.

I'm always trying to find a little video to go with my blocks.  I typed in Center Song on Youtube and found a song I've never heard before.

I just had church!

"Jesus at the Center"
