An Oldie, but a Goodie!

Annabelle, my bunny rabbit.  She is one of the very first of my designs I used for part of a quilt.  Here's one of my favorite blocks of Annabelle with her sheepie pull toy.  I finally finished the hand quilting on this one, which was started a few years ago.

* * * A Haunted House ****

Maybe, but I think the ghosts may be a bit too friendly to do much haunting!

Another house for my "Spooky Towne" neighborhood.

Well, not so much.  Here's a picture of one of the houses in my "Spooky Towne" project.  A few different homes to such creatures as Frankenstein, Dracula, Mr. Skelly Bones, a mummy...you get the idea, right.  The creatures themselves are not necessarily going to be a part, just where they live in "Spooky Towne."  :0))

This one belongs to....can you guess?

Skelly Bones...

The title for the block is "Pushing Up Daisies."  I know...definitely a warped sense of humor. ;))

My little garden blocks

I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with all those little 6"garden blocks I have been making.  I finally decided on a layout for most of them.  The borders will be added, once I finally decide on the colors.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look. ;)

Sunny, with a chance of cuteness!  Every garden needs a little sunshine! 

And another ray of sunshine was welcomed on August 2, 2016:  Baby Samuel, at 7 lbs. 5 ounces,  our first grandchild!
