Home sweet home

Home Sweet Home

Block 3
Block 4

filler blocks

Home Sweet Home is now a TOP!! I finished the borders now on to finding a backing and deciding on the binding! I am thinking I might do a curved border.

I also worked on my moda U baskets I did some fussy piecing on the woven basket. I may change my mind on my border fabric have to wait till I see how I arrange the blocks.

watermelon pin cushion

Gee I haven't been around in a while and now 2 posts in one day!!

I saw these cute pincushions at the AQS show in Knoxville I have a pattern by Need'l love from Summer spirit and made one today, I stuffed it with walnut shells. I think I need to make a few more watermelon things before summer is over.

busy sewing

and lots of other things, I finished block 8 of home sweet home and almost done with block 9 just a few more leaves to stitch so top will be done soon, I have sewn 3 of the 4 borders I think this will be really pretty.

I started Moda U with friends and have several blocks done, my colors with this are chocolate brown reds and pinks.

Had such a mess to clean up after nasty storms last week took out our patio furniture and several trees, so much glass to pick up safety glass is so tiny we used spatulas to try and get it out of the mulch.
I also have the Aug, block done for Bunny Hill's BOM I did change it a bit who hasn't had a picnic disturbed my bees and ants? and I had to have a slice of watermelon to go with my cupcakes
