One Flower Wednesday on the Way to El Paso

Encouraging Words of the Day:

For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago. - Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)


We're leaving the Texas Hill Country today, "One-Flower Wednesday." We had a marvelous time, had lovely weather for the most part. On Father's Day weekend we traveled to our youngest son's town of Keller and absolutely had a great time. Now we're on the way back to El Paso. I have a couple of flowers to show you, sewn on the way to Keller.

Total number of flowers posted is now 226. I actually have more since quite a few can be sewn on a 6-hour drive but have only posted 226.

I also have two one-inch flowers sewn for my partner in the "Inchy-Hexagon Flower Swap." She requested flowers in pink, red, and/or cream.


I finished Mama's tablecloth. I made this some time ago but was never pleased with the end-result so I unsewed some of it and re-did it to look like this.


That is all.

You really do get a lot of sewing done on your trips. You are going to have to come up with a clever name for your finished quilt - traveling flowers or something like that. Your Mama's tablecloth looks so nice. Are you going to quilt it?

The red Inchy hexagon is lovely Irene, you do get a lot of sewing done on your trips.

Margo said...

Love the flowers! The only thing I've managed to do on my trips is just getting the hexies ready! Bravo to you for sewing them as well! Looking forward to seeing what you've done next week! Thanks for encouraging me to do more!

I love the red flower with the drops in each petal! You will have to show us all your tiny flowers sometime. I bet they look fantastic together...
