Flowers Block 3

It’s the end of the month, but at least not the final day!!
Block 3 of the Flowers quilt is a wrap. 

I must admit that it was a bit more difficult than the others and took me awhile longer to stitch, but I think that it was worth it.

Here are the First three blocks together. Sorry the photo is a bit wonky, but you can see where I am going with it.....reds, teals, greens and golds. My favorite palette.

Slow Stitching

Today was a good day for slow stitching(linking up
 )and that is just what I did this chilly Sunday afternoon.
I had prepped this block 

And even started stitching yesterday. Despite a lot of hours, I am still at it. It required more work than my last two, but I a starting to feel a little more confident with my needleturn appliqué.

This is my EPP teacher, Mary Lou. She is showing her progress on this year’s project, Salute to Levens Hall by Kim McLean.

I am REALLY trying to finish Glorious Gardens before I start this one, but it is tempting.

RSC Post

I failed to make a post on the RSC last month, but I have been keeping up.
Last month was purple, and here is my stack of 30+ little 9 patches. Linking up 

This month it is light and bright greens. My interpretation of light and bright definitely lends towards medium and dull. The strip sets are sewn and ready to be chopped up.

I have not forgotten these little Wild and Goosey blocks. I continue to add a few here and there.

This was my Bible Study helped today. Don’t be fooled by her innocent look.

No Post, Long Time

Seems that every day I intend to post, but somehow it just never happens. So, today is the day to make it happen.

Sew Crazies met in February and Debi had these two tops to share...

She is amazing. I have never known anyone who could make as many great quilts as she does.

I finally got the Temecula First Friday top done.

Now to get the backing pieced.

I am making progress on Glorious Gardens. The first three rows are set together and I am working on row three.

This is a partial view of the first three rows before the third row was entirely attached. It is going to be large....90x90.

Homespun Medallions is heading towards the finish line, but I haven’t worked on it in a couple of weeks.

Need to get busy again.

We held the Annual Can’t Never Could Dinner on Monday night. It was a great success, once again, and we raised lots of money to continue to assist those facing adversity. There was a wonderful video tribute to Rob and 
Inky Johnson was the speaker. If you have never heard of him, you need to click on the link. 
What an inspiration!!

Some random family pics here....

Christi and Robert at Lambda Chi Parents Day.

This photo is of Christi holding Rob’s picture that was featured on the front of Lawn and Landscape magazine. Inside was a tribute to Rob.

My beautiful granddaughter, Sara Ashley, ready to go cheer.
