Angie at A Quilting Reader's Garden is have a giveaway today. The question to answer is, "What is your favorite Charity quilt pattern?" I've only sew one for the Downy Quilts for kids. I'm rarely good at finishing a project as most of my followers know, so this was the only one I made.
Too much pressure for the old lady.
I started my blog a little after I finished this quilt. Looks like it didn't make it to the blog. What I did find was many of the UFOs, I've totally forgotten about. I'm sure they are tucked into some corner of this house :D :D
It also made me very sad to see some of my loving pups and kitties photos, I've lost along the way. I'm so hoping all of my sweet babies are waiting for me. I know that's silly, but I still miss them all dearly!
Enough of that! Hop over to Angie's for the Giveaway! and link up some eye candy.
Have a great week. If I don't get off this computer and sew, I'll have nothing else to post.
Sure missing a couple of old Texas. The last time we saw them was at the Broken Spoke. They were doing a promotion for A Little Bit of Nada. We had fun singing along on the chorus. We got their autographs which I have in a safe place somewhere :)
Actually the first time I met Doug Sahm, I was about 15, but that's a whole other story...giggle.
Before I got distracted by the Honeycomb SAL, by In from the Cold, by Blogger Girls BOM, by Blockbase Finish, by Star Flower Hexies, by May's Ben Franklin block, I THINK I was working on this.....giggle.
I did a little Sunday sewing on the flower bud and pinned on the red bird.
I was admiring Angie's hexie at A Quilting Reader's Garden and telling her about my hexies or lack there of.....grin. She suggested we make a hexie every Friday to help keep us on track.
Sounded good to me. After all, Angie's Applique Thursday helped me finish my Snowbound top.
I bought this pattern from Regina Grewe in 2010. I can't believe it's been that long...giggle. This definitely qualifies as a UFO. Here are a couple of pictures from Regina's webpage.
Regina's Star Flower quilt is gorgeous!!
Well there you go! Angie and I will be making hexie's and posting them on Fridays. Sew along if you like.....no pressure here.....just sew for the fun of it.
As an encouraging bonus to sew some hexie's of your own, I'm having a giveaway. I'm giving away two of Regina's lovely Star Flower patterns. The patterns will be sent as a PDF file directly from Regina. No hoops to jump through. Just leave a happy comment.
A couple of my rare blooms...giggle....because of my brown thumb.
a Road Runner. I'm really hoping he is eating a baby copperhead.
Have a great weekend!!
