    This block from Rachel's Flower Garden look much better without the tubes on the first and last flower. I decided I didn't like it at all until I changed it.

    This is Block 2. One to go. Hope I have time to get the top together tomorrow or Saturday morning. Guess we'll see. I'm thinking the pansies need one more in the top right. If I have time and find some more fabric I'll put one in there.

    Thanks Marcia, glad you like them. Hope I can get the last flowers done in the morning. I already have the background ironed in place. Just have to sew it and get to work. Have a great night!

    I think I smell food. I don't eat much when I'm working. DH will be up in 7 minutes to get ready for work. Guess I grab and apple and go to bed. Will be back tomorrow.

    Thanks for compliments I get so many from everyone here. It's a good place to be.

    Thanks, I think it really helped it out. I finished the sunflower green work that I hated last night so hopefully only need to make a pansy if I have time after this camellia. Got to get to the store for stuff to make a pie for the pie contest at the show tomorrow.

    My embroidery job isn't great but that's the way they look to me. Kind of Whispy centers.

    My week end is far away. I'm still on vicodin from the dentist office. Just thought I'd get up for a while. I've been sitting on the couch all day with my 3 dogs. They love it when I sit with them. Spoiled little things. I keep thinking about cutting out some of the fabric for the Colorado Gold Quilt but just can't get myself going. Tonight and tomorrow I have to watch American Idol you know. Can't miss that. Thursday I'm going out to Linda's and we are both cutting out pieces for a Fan dance quilt we are going to make in a class. Hope I didn't lose the book in this mess. Oh there it is..
