One Flower Wednesday in the Texas Hill Country

Encouraging Words of the Day:

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. ~ Ephesians 2:8, NLT

I've been reading a few blogs posts lately about bloggers in a funk; not much sewing and not much blogging. I can say that I can definitely relate. I've been feeling the same way. I've managed to post once a week on "One-Flower Wednesday." Karen provides a linky for those interested in posting the flowers they make and she does keep us on-task. In my case, she also keeps me posting once a week. That's the only sewing I've been doing. We're at our little ranch in the Texas Hill Country and I sewed hexie flowers on the 7-hour road trip here. We live 12 miles outsite of town so I also sew on the ride to town and back so I've made several 1/2-inch hexies. I've made 15 flowers but consider that I've had to do all the prep work and then sew them into flowers. I say that like no one else has to do that so nevermind. Now I have 143.

I have to save the rest of them for other "One-Flower Wednesdays" in case my sewing really slows down. Here are 3 of them.

Click on “One Flower Wednesday” to see flowers others have made.

I'm going to try to get my mojo back by sewing a little baby quilt while at the ranch. This will be donated to Linus at the hospital where my sister works.

That is all.

Wow, 143 flowers is quit a lot. I don't have the half of yours. You have been very busy.

Sometimes I think I jinx myself by holding projects back so I'll have something to show next week. I know that I don't have to find time to finish a project, so I do other things instead.

Karen said...

LOL, like you are the only one that has to do that. My giggle for the day, thank you!
