Back in El Paso With One-Flower Wednesday
Encouraging words of the day:
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. ~ Hebrews 13:8, NLT
We’re back in El Paso after spending a lovely 2 weeks with our older son and family in Virginia. Now I’m playing “catch-up” trying to remember what I was sewing and where I put everything away. I finally made a list that will take me forever to complete. Anyway, while at the beach, I managed to make these 3 little ½ inch flowers for “One Flower Wednesday.” I actually make them for last Wednesday but since that’s the day we were flying home, I never managed to post them so, “ta da,” I have something for today. “All’s well that ends well.”
You can check “One Flower Wednesday” to see more flowers made by fellow bloggers. Thanks, Karen, for keeping us going with our hexie flowers.
Speaking of hexagons, I recently ran into some beautiful patterns and joined a “Hexathon.” Here’s my first one:
I had a nice package in the mail also. I won 5 Civil War fat quarters in the “Hands2Help Challenge” where I sent a charity quilt. Everyone who sent a charity quilt won something and my winnings were from Annie at “Ruby Slipperz.” Thanks, Annie. I just love Civil War fabrics and Annie asked me what type of fat quarters I wanted and here they are along with some pretty little embroidery scissors. Thanks, Annie!
I want to mention a traveling stash box that my sister Ida, from "My sister made me do it," and I put together. It’s filled with goodies that we hope you’ll like. Please check it out here.
That is all.
