Square Two Stitch-A-Long

My Little Rose Garden

As a child I was always surrounded with beautiful flowers from my grandma Lopez's flower garden.  I loved smelling the roses.  I had to smell every one. Beautiful memories playing in her yard.

Trims & Embellishments!

My fabric still has not arrived so I can start my squares for I'm Stitching-a-long. :0( I am loosing patients! :0) While I am waiting I have decided to gather some possible embellishments and trims that include vintage lace and ribbon, beads, vintage rhinestone buttons and silk ribbon. I will be using DMC and Anchor pearl cotton in size 5 and a red in size 3. I hope to have a square done for you to see early next week. Keeping my fingers crossed! Just maybe it will come on Monday!!!

Happy Mail!

Look what I got in the mail today! :0) I am so, so, so, thrilled with the quilt I got from Beth for DQS8. The fabric, the colors, little birds in the tree, everything is perfect! Not only did I get the best little quilt but she sent me a little bag and the fabrics she used in the quilt. I am sooooooooooo lucky. Thank you so much Beth, I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful package. You are awesome!

I'm Stitching Along

I just found out about this wonderful little stitch along at 39 Squares a couple of days ago. I quickly ordered some osnaburg fabric and am patiently waiting for it to arrive so I can start.  By the time it gets here I will be 14 days behind I am sure. Will have a lot of catching up to do. Can't wait! As if I don't have enough on my plate with 2 jobs, a family a big house to clean and other sewing projects to finish. LOL!  I can't help myself. LOL!

"Celebration Quilt" For DQS8 Finished

Thought I would show you the doll quilt I sent out to.....? Can't tell you yet because my secret partner has not received it yet. I call this quilt the "Celebration Quilt" because it can be used for birthdays, anniversaries etc... I am half way done with the second one for my girls and am thinking of making more to put in my Etsy store. What do you think?

She go it and she loves it!  Sheeeew  I feel better. :0)  This little quilt went to Trisha at TLC Stitches.
