Simply Splendid

Here are a few of my Simply Splendid Sampler blocks (you can find them on Pat Sloan's blog).  I do like doing the applique ones a bit more than the pieced ones, right now.  I have done a few of the pieced ones, as well, but just a few quickie shots of a couple of my favorites.

One of the bonus blocks.

One of my very favorites, so far.

A cute bunny block from Bunny Hill Designs.

Another bonus block

My fussy cut heart.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, these blocks are only 6 inches square.

...and such

Who doesn't have a few, maybe more, (LOL!) of these fluffy fellows in their yard or garden?


All wool felt on cotton fabric.

Bugs and such...

So, something else new (of course)....always got something goin'!  Maybe a garden theme...the critters, the bugs, the birds and the flowers, too.  Probably a sampler type format.  The blocks will only be 6."  And a few of the 'bugs and such' right here:

(Mr. Bumble still needs his eye)
These guys are stitched with wool felt and a bit of fabric.  I am going to try and stay within a certain range of colors, the deep golds, olive green, black (of course!), grey and tan.  I'll see how that works out!

Thanks for taking time to visit.

Baby Giraffe

My baby giraffe needs a name...Geoffrey is already taken by Toys R Us...I'll have to think on this one for a while.  Any suggestions?  Here he is all decked out in his pretty striped tie!

New beginnings

Another new quilt is just beginning.  A baby quilt this time! 
Exciting news!  I am going to be a grandmother this summer.  Of course, there has to be a baby quilt.  I designed a fun, little guy just for my son and his wife.   Here's just a tiny peek:

Just cut out this morning, and ready to be stitched and embellished!

Almost there...

April is just around the corner, as well as my wedding anniversary...April lst.  Yep, yep, I know.  How could you?  Well, let's put it this way, my husband has never forgotten the date!  Ha, Ha!

Here is Little Bo Sheep dressed in her raincoat for all those April showers that will be coming our way.

(holding her chocolate bunny from Easter)

Couldn't forget Annabelle!  Here she is in her raincoat and hat with her polka-dotted umbrella.

A Little Boost

The Quirky Hare & Co. 

There you go!  A link to my Facebook page for my designs.  There is still one design available for free...my Little Bo Sheep Bride.  Take a peek.  Plus, I sometimes post pictures there of the projects I am currently doing.
