I love how the sky makes the the leaves sparkle.
Today I picked blueberries.
I freeze them. Some of my favorite ways to eat them.
In my oatmeal
With half and half and splenda
In my pancakes
The Lord gave us this beautiful Sunflower. My husband and I have never had a sunflower plant before.
One of the roses from my garden.
Another post card I made using 2 new techniques. Machine quilting pebbles...I need more practice and Shadow Trapunto.
I learned about shadow trapunto from Geta's blog http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.com/ while checking out Sew Mama Sew May giveaways. Geta has many beautiful quilts. I am waiting to purchase some of her patterns when they come out, but wanted to try go ahead and try this method.
Next I have always loved the maple leaf block pattern. Except it is usually is a 12" block....way too big. So when my TBLOVERS2 group had a table runner swap and my quilting partner loved fall and reds and greens, it dawned upon me I could reduce the maple leaf. I designed and made this table runner.
And when the ladies of my local quilting group saw it a few wondered how it would look in brights. Well not one to make the exact same pattern. I designed this wall hanging.
And my last project to share tonight is this little pincushion. The little penguin is silk felted and is a new technique for me. I had fun making him.
