Looking for the Harvest of Rubies review and giveaway? It's HERE!
I had an early surprise . . . my November doll quilt swap partner, Kim, is way ahead of the game and has already finished and sent her offering, along with a darling card that explained her piece.
"This pattern is called darting birds - I made the center block for my 6 inch block sew along and it was 1/4" too small! So here it is in your doll quilt -- enjoy!"
I most certainly will! It's perfectly darling and the fabrics are gorgeous -- I love the rich, luxurious reds!
She also sent along a blank card for my use and enjoyment. She told me that it's a picture of a quilt made in the town next to Poughkeepsie (which is where she's from)! I love note cards -- and particularly note cards that have quilty things on the front of them -- so this was a sweet happy! Thanks so much, Kim!!
I finally did something with my little pumpkin stitchery and just cut it down and set it very simply.
It's quilted, but again, very simply and so that you really don't see the quilting, but it does rather give definition to the lines of the pumpkin. A mug rug or something. It just really needed to come down off the design wall. LOL!
And then what kind of day would it be if I didn't share something with grandbabies in it???! There is no denying the familial relationship between these two . . .
Right?? It makes me laugh how closely they resemble each other! Right down to their sweet little frownie faces . . .
Although she definitely has more 'feminine' features, and he certainly looks like a little boy -- which is as it should be!
The campground is filled with the sounds of boys again this weekend -- I love their happy shouts! It's a gorgeous, cool and sunny day -- perfect for all sorts of games in the woods and on the trails. The group is with us through tomorrow -- so tonight should be a fun campfire night.
I'm still staying semi-quiet. Keeping the foot propped ... most of the time. Alabama Crimson Tide football comes on at two-thirty this afternoon, so it's pretty safe to say where you'll find me!
I almost feel like I should say, "This post was brought to you by the color RED!"
