One Flower Wednesday on Thursday and Mother's Day Swap

First of all I'd like to thank Anthea (Hibiscus Stitches) for the email....I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted and visited all the blogs I enjoy so much.  Work has been trying and stressful and I let it take too much of my "free time" from me.


I joined three flowers to my garden, it's been so long since I worked on my hexies.  This week I'm planning on making more leaves and stepping stones and will post my progress next Wednesday.  Visit the other gardens at Karen's One Flower Wednesday and see how their gardens are blooming.

This is the beautiful Mother's Day mini quilt I received from Helen.  I showed the mini or a picture of it to many of my friends here and I didn't realize I had not posted it.  It's Gorgeous!  These pictures don't show off her beautiful stitching - thanks again Helen for this lovely quilt.  (it's still hanging in my living room - flowers look good all year).  Helen also sent many goodies and I especially liked the licorice/chocolate logs - YUM!




Here are pictures of the mini I made for Helen



 Thanks to Cheryll for hosting this 12 inch mini swap.  The "winter" mini swap is now underway and I have already been working on that.

Good Night for now...I leave for work in about six hours....

Happy Stitching,
Danette
