BLESSED EASTER – Colors coming alive

20 Apr

2015 EASTER BOUQ

     Blessed Easter to you all………..  as we are reminded of new life, so the colors of spring start popping here on this acre.

      Family gathering here was great.  Tried something new instead of coloring eggs – we colored butterflies on fabric for either a family quilt or a charity quilt.   They are lovely!

Oh My! Lots to Catch up!

WHEAT FIELD 2014

 

   Hello All!   So much to catch up on and such a busy spring I hardly know where to start! 

    But will start with a greatful heart for bountiful rains in June/July.  It’s end of July and flowerbed bursting like spring.  This is view of field to the north, out my kitchen window.  Between the rain and rain barrels, have not had to use “paid for” water!

 

 

 

SUNFLWR 2

 

  Surprise!   Have several “volunteer” sunflowers from the winter bird seed.  HA!  The sunflowers have had visits from butterflies, sphinx moths, and a seed-eating goldfinch who resembled Cookie Monster the way he went after that flower.

 

 

 

PROMISE BANNER 2014

 

   This beautiful photo comes from Miss Sherry right here in Kansas.  She enlarged my “PROMISE ETERNAL” pattern to banner size for her church, and her quilt group hand quilted it.  What a precious gift to the church.

        Thanks again to Miss Sherry for the pic – I LOVE to see your creations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZIP LINE

 

   Am working like crazy on new patterns for Houston Quilt Market, the end for October.  This is:   ZIP LINE

      ZIP LINE is made from a Bali Pop package (TidePool) of 2-1/2″ strips from Hoffman.  I liked the design on graph paper, but am thrilled at how photogenic it is!

      So much more to share about historic family reunion, a wedding in Florida, and more pattern news!

      More to come…………..
