    Here is where we can discuss Round 5.

    I have Colletta's started. It isn't too late for you to change my mind.

    I have to keep moving. Our DD & SIL are living with us and we have a granddaughter due any day.

    I am so glad you like it. I'll go get busy. Can I have some breakfast first though? lol

    What are you having? Maybe I'll come do breakfast with you and watch you work on my quilt. I think that would be really fun!

    My breakfast is pretty boring but you are welcome to join me. I'm having a piece of toast with blackberry jam. It is homemade multigrain bread.

    If you have skype you could work together.

    I'm just trying to set the bar high. LOL

    I don't have anything else pressing right now and it just seemed to work. Sometimes it comes easy and sometimes I have to stare at it for a long time before I get started.

    My goodness this is beautiful, darn it is hard to follow you lady!!!
    I haven't even got TexasQuilts yet and you have Colletta's done. Oh well.
    It really is lovely are those flowers embroidered on? They are so pretty.
    I have no clue how to add to maybe its a good thing I have a while to think about it.

    Well I finished round 5 on TexasQuilts today. Sorry I can't post a picture but i've still not learned how, maybe we can beg Colletta to post again when she gets it. I will give you one clue. Think scrappy!
    Muriel

    p.s. Colletta I will mail it probably on Wednesday will take it to show and tell Tuesday with the ladies I sew with. I will mail the B&W blocks with it, should be able to save a little on the shipping that way.

    No Butterfly. That is for a different group. I am sending that one to AKAngel in Alaska.

    You get Terri's that I haven't done yet. I think I have decided what I want to do I just have to collect what I need to accomplish it. How is that for being ambiguous?

    Yes I made the bread but I didn't grind the flour. lol.

    It's one of my families favorites but I can't make it too often because we like it too much.

    Thanks for the comments on Colletta's. I'm sure what you will be getting is better than what I could add. They are all pretty.

    Here is Pattiīs round 5. I embroidered silk flowers. The silk ribbon came from S. Africa and I had to wait on it Patti (not the elephant tusk LOL)
    There are a lot of different flowers. Each corner has a Magnolia Blossom, there are roses, delphiniums, Iris, Clover,Erica,bluebells,fuschia to name a few.

    I do hope you like it. Its got really big so I photographed the quilt on my bed so you can see it and then the flowers separately.
