This has been another super busy week, along with trying to get my project underway for the Shades of Blue Blog Hop which starts on Monday. I knew starting out that I would only have part of it assembled for the blog hop. It is an 81x95 inch quilt and has lots and lots of parts. This will actually be a wedding gift in the Fall for a friend of the family's daughter. I have known her since she was a little girl, and she graduated with granddaughter Kyleigh I think. I have all the components assembled and pieces cut out. I will start laying it out on the floor Sunday and whatever I can get done by Monday afternoon will be what I show.
I also quilted this guild quilt, and was able to take it to the meeting on Wednesday for someone to pick up and bind.
Tuesday night was Begonia Society meeting, and it was propagation night, and we learned how to propagate cane begonias, how to do leaf propagation and rhizome propagation. We came home with lots of cuttings and leafs, and I spent one afternoon taking care of all those. I still have two leaves I am trying to root in water.
Thursday night I went and celebrated daughter Kristen's BD with some of her friends, and my other daughter Katie. It is very kind of them to include me, and I always have fun.
For Kristen's BD I had downloaded these embroidery designs on Embroidery Library They had them on sale last month, and I knew Kristen would like them, she loves anything with birds on them. I made little cushions, and even put zippers in the back.
The amaryllis I bought in December already has a huge beautiful flower on it! The one I bought last year is just leaves so far.
For Slow Sunday Stitching I continue working on my sunflower quilt. It is hard to see what I have done so far, but I have worked on the flowers, and outlined most the flowers. I plan to do some grid work once I am done with the flowers and leaves.
I will be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Head on over and check out what everyone is up to.
Thanks for stopping by!
Love all those little blocks in blue fabrics. Looks like a lot of stitching them together. Fingers crossed you get a lot done. Happy Birthday to your daughter. So lovely you were included in her birthday celebrations. The Love cushions look fabulous sitting there all in a row. As for the Sunflowers quilt; it is such a cheery quilt.ReplyDelete

Oh gosh that Sunflower quilt looks gorgeous. And what LOVEly cushions. How cute! And Begonia Society sounds like a great place to be on a winter day.ReplyDelete
What fun to be included in the girls night birthday. I'm sure it's because you are fun and they all love you! The sunflowers look amazing, and your plan is a great one. Your amaryllis is beautiful and about the colors mine was, but different patterns. It amazes me how many colors there are to these. I wish they would bloom for weeks and weeks! Mine in the garage is just putting up the first 3 inches of leaves. It's red, I think.ReplyDelete
I can see your gorgeous quilting on those yellow flowers. I love those pillows. I am looking forward to seeing your Shades of Blue. I really like that guild quilt also. Have a great week.ReplyDelete
