    I figured you girls wanted to see a couple of my work insted of other things. (Like my garden) So I pulled out a couple small things to show and tell.

    These are very simple things of my own design that have been waiting to be quilted or finished with borders. And a redwork santa I have been struggling with to finish up anda picture I made for my master watercloset.

    I am not sure how the order is going to come out, though .... LOL!

    Thank you very much Chele.

    I have to tell the story on my hubby ... He said, "That's very nice hon, but why is there a kite in the picture?" .... Oh men they never heard of the wand the fairygodmother had?

    This was from my hand piecing days ....

    Everything is beautiful! I especially love the redwork and the bluework. Are these done by hand??

    Hi everyone! I had company most of the day so this is the first I could get back on line. It worked out though, cause my brother put the fourth rail on the quilt table for me while he was here.

    Thanks so much for enjoying my projects and your sweet comments.
    Yes .. all the embroderies are my hand work. I enjoy handwork, it is so homey to sit and hand sew like that.

    I have a ways to go with some of these I have shown, but, I wanted to show you girls, I do quilt/piece sometimes. Ha ha ha ...

    I have many many more up there as ufo's. I promised myself I would finish as many as I could this year, though. It is hard after you put something away to drag it out and finish it when a new project is screaming in your ear. LoL! I know I am BAD!

    Have a great night girls ... gotta go and eat.

    Beautiful work redgarnet - my faves are the leaves and trees, BTW the borders look fine to me, but if you wanted to push them a little into the background, how about appliqueing some leaves on them? Just an idea!

    I never thought about applique on it to change it up! Now that is a good idea. That one is completely hand pieced (the trees) I just got to the point that I hated what it looked like. I think I might take the borders off and try something else with it and maybe try something like adding some applique. Thanks so much k3n! Good thinking.

    LoL pocoelle ... You are very kind thank so much.

    sandpat .. those embrodery pictures take a while to do. I get too fussy with them. But, I too love the handwork. That is why I collect it too. It is wrong that someone doesn't charish it. I wouldn't part with my mother's work for anything.

    And sweet bev ... How big are your blocks? I have some orphan blocks I did a long time ago waiting for a home.

    The christmas snowmen really need another border on it. I just need to find one I like for it. Not sure which color to use though. Maybe the pink? That is the bad thing about designing as you go. Waiting for the quilt to tell what it wants. LoL!
