Pardon me but...

Greetings- I thought I'd start this post out with a little humor. I hope you all take it as such and are not offended. I just couldn't resist. This picture is from Celia Rae , courtesy of Just goes to show Queen Elizabeth is just as human as everybody else. As I said , I hope I have not offended anyone. I just got a little chuckle out of it and would have posted it if had been anyone else in the limelight.

Yesterday I posted the wonderful floss tag that I received from Jolene. I neglected to take a picture of the beautiful fabric on the back, so here it is. You may swipe it if you'd like Jolene.
I will see my mom today and I can't wait to show it to her. She'll probably try to take it from me even though she no longer can see to do needlework! LOL!

Here is another beauty I received from Jolene in the exchange.It will make a nice patriotic addition to our game/family room.

I just had to take some stitches the day it arrived. Here is my progress thus far. I just love those little sheep!

I woke up this morning to a blanket of snow on the ground and also on the car. I'll have to beebop it outside to clean it off as I need to use it today. Ugh! I dread going out in the cold but at least I am lucky enough to have a car to use right?

For all you quilters out there that love redwork, and I'm one of them, you should go and visit Alex Anderson's blog at . She is giving away her 12 Days of Redwork as a free download. I have really been itching to do another redwork quilt and this will do nicely.I was thinking about how great it would look to have small squares of different red fabrics bordering the redwork blocks and then border the entire quilt the same way, maybe using 2 rows of squares instead of one? Lot's of time to decide. I'll use DMC's 498 for the embroidery. It's my absolute favorite for redwork. I think Alex said on her Simply Quilts show once that it was her's too.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. It's so nice to be 'visited' by friends!

'til next time,

  1. Oh, you're so lucky to receive that floss tag from Jolene. She does so many wonderful things and I love the way she did the edging on this. And great start on the SB kit. Such great things you received.

  2. I'm not much of a one for sheep; but even I think those are really cute! I can definitely understand why you had to stitch it up at least a bit!


Thank you for your comments. They just make my day! Thanks for your visit today!
