Prettiest Flower in the Garden

Last Monday I took my youngest granddaughter to the Denver Botanical Gardens for her fourth birthday. I think she had fun, don’t you?

It was a beautiful day with a beautiful granddaughter.

On the quilting front – my projects are going slow, but some progress has been made. The binding and sleeve for Starry Night Hexies was sewn down

and all the hand-stitching was completed yesterday.

The machine stitching in the background is straight lines alternating up & down and across. It was slow going, but gave me practice with ruler work. I am glad that it is finished and very happy with the quilt.

May is the month for quilts from recycled shirts. My sewing room looks like a tornado went through, but hopefully it will all be under control by the end of the month. It is all my own dang fault, since I started two new recycled shirt projects to go along with the four already started. The goal is to have at least two quilt tops completed by the end of the month. We shall see how that works out.

Happy Mother’s Day

    What a precious little girl! My youngest is well past that age (almost 15) but I remember a good time at the Cheekwood giant bug exhibit. Good job on Starry Night!

      She was my birthday present four years ago, so she holds a special place in my heart. I am taking one vacation day a month to spend time with her before she starts kindergarten next year. Thank you for the compliment on Starry Night. It is amazing to me to think of how many hours such a small quilt took to make, but we really don’t count the time, do we?
