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!

A few little bulbs

One more of the small blocks for my garden-themed project.  I am also working on a happy sun block, as well..almost done. Meanwhile, here's a look at those bulbs:

I am working on a few blocks with words to go with this one.  Reap, sow, grow and plant are a few of the words, which are stitched in wool felt.   The words will be a few different greens, but all on the same background.   The first one:
I hope you are able to 'reap' all the benefits of summer!

That's what I have been calling them...they are just so chubby and cute, my bumble bees, that is.
Take a peek. 

This is a smaller one.
Here's one that's a bit bigger:
And, a ladybug, too!

Very quick and easy to stitch; my kind of 'bug!'  :))

Bzzzzz. . .

and bzzzz....

What's a buzz, you say?  Take a peek at my little baby bee peeking out of the entrance to the bee hive.

She's very small...only three inches wude from petal to petal!
More to come!
