Hexi Flower...

Here is another hexi flower finished and one started for my scrappy hexagon quilt...no hurry on this one...I was able to do the one flower late one night while gone and start another one...now that I am home I hope to do more of these each week...if not that is ok too as this is a slow work in progress to use up some scraps...I will also be posting this on my other blog here, which is just for hexies...keep those needles stitching...

Crocheted Blanket

Originally this was going to be a full size afghan for me...enter my sweet granddaughter Jazmine....monkey, my baby needs a blankie....ooooh that's pretty monkey (thats what she calls me):)...every single time she came to visit she would look in the basket and say this...what's a gran to do...make up four blocks into a dolls blankie of course...now Jazmine's baby is nice and toasty...I added two rows of double crochet after I joined the blocks...a smaller project than when I first started, but one that has given much happiness to the receiver of the blankie...grandchildren are such a blessing in ones life...Keep those needles stitching.

I'm Back....

 I am back from my blog absence of nearly two weeks...nothing wrong, I just went out of town to speak at a conference in TX....no time for much stitching while away...although I did complete one hexi flower for the week I was gone and basted many of the bigger ones...before I left on the trip I made this lovely bit of scrim for a small wall hanging...a closeup...
 a closer look at the crocheted edging....
 A final look at the mini wall hanging...
I really love how this one turned out...it has lace bits and pieces sandwiched between two layers of scrim....this was so much fun to work on....keep those needles stitching!

Trying To Decide...



I am trying to decide on which flower to use on this shabby chic heart pocket that I am making...I cannot seem to decide which one I want to use...what do you think....the top and bottom pic is large silk flowers and the middle roses are some I made using scrim...

Awesome Package....

Blogging friends are so awesome...over the years that I have had my blog I have met some wonderful people who love the same things I do...one such friend is Gina, who I met through a swap where we were partnered together...Gina and I both love peacocks, old linens and needlework...a few weeks ago Gina came into a large supply of linens and crocheted doilies...she shared them with some of her readers...I was one of the lucky bloggy friend who received some of them...they arrived here on yesterday...now to decide what these will become in the future...thank you so much Gina for your thoughtful gift of linens...I will treasure each and everyone of them and will use them in my creative process...

FNWF Results....

This is what I worked on last night...added to my scrim of course.... I have added two more sections and started on the stitching...more time will be spent on this over the next few days...originally I was going to work on my hexi quilt, but this just grabbed me instead and once I started working on it I kept going....progress is good...:)

Scrim Play....

I have been playing with scrim again...I am really enjoying the process of making the plain scrim into a thing of beauty by adding stitch....all these french knots, buttonhole bar, bullions, mirrors, butterflies, buttonhole stitch, seed stitch....makes this cloth so pretty to just gaze at....I have two more sections ready to be added to my other pieces...I hope you don't tire of seeing the scrim on here as it will be an ongoing work in progress until the cloth tells me it is finished...then I will start another in a different color...sigh....so many ideas running through my mind about this scrim!

Mother's Day Mini


I was in a mini quilt swap hosted by Cheryl for a Mother's Day Mini...my swap partner was Carin and she lives in Sweden...she sent me the most lovely little mini ever...I also made a mini for her and she has finally received it...it took a bit longer to get to her than we anticipated...I tracked it to customs here and I guess it sat there for a while before moving on...now it is finally in its new home so I can now post about them...I absolutely love the one Carin made for me....so precious! Thank you Carin for such a lovely little quilt to add to my mini quilt wall...Below is the one I made for Carin...she emailed to say she loves it as well and is now hanging in her kitchen...I wish I had more of this fabric as I love how this one turned out...I used raw edge applique for all the little flowers and then quilted them down...
I have enough of the flowers to make a small mug rug with and will be doing so shortly...keep those needles flying...
