    Gigi`s Garden

    I just finished piecing this wallhanging. It will be my sisters wedding gift. She is getting married in May....both their second wedding....wanted to make something special for her...Her nickname is Gigi and she loves gardening...thus the name. I found the pattern in the "Quiltmaker " mag July/Aug 04 called "The Butterfly garden" . I have plenty of time to finish it before the wedding...thanks for looking

    I love that pattern! It has been "earmarked" to do all these years. You did a great job-I am sure she will love it!

    I KNOW I will never get a fraction of them done. I have two full shelves full of magazines/books, and I use small post-it stickers on the ones I want to make. It looks like "fringe" on the tops of the magazines all grouped together!! Without counting (don't think I'd be able to count that high!), I would estimate over 300 with tabs! That doesn't count the notebooks I have with patterns I get off the internet, or the basket of individual patterns I just had to have!! How many lives do we get????? LOL

    What a beautiful, cheerful, positive speaking wedding gift. Vibrant and alive it makes one smile. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    It sure has a lot of tine peices and detail. It is really lovely and will bring the garden right inside.

    I had to just look at it for so long. There was just so much to discover and appreciate.

    That is so wonderful that you did such a personal gift for your sister.
