August has passed so quickly, I haven't even started any of my August BOMs.....(there's always next month) but I did manage to get a flower ready to add to my garden.

Stop by and take at the other hexies this week - here.  Thanks to Karen for helping us keep our gardens growing.

Only a few more months until Christmas and this week I was thinking about bell ornaments I made back in high school for family.  I called my Aunt and between the two of us we came up with the pattern.  I remember my mom using white mohair for the bottom of the bell and they looked a little rounder but I'm happy with the results using the yarn I had stored in the basement.

Check out  CTTY - Christmas through the Year hosted by Anthea here to see what other items are being made.  Thanks Anthea for keeping us on track for Christmas.

Happy Stitching!

One Flower Wednesday, 12" mini quilt swap and 35 years

Here it is late Wednesday and I should be sleeping instead of posting in bed.  That's what happens when you fall asleep in the recliner while supposedly sewing.

I made a few stones for my garden path and only managed to sew two of them on.

Look at the cute snowman I received!  He has a great top hat, crocheted scarf, mittens and such a cute face.  There's snowflakes, snowballs and WINTER FUN in beads.  Thank you so much Terry (California) for this wonderful mini...I LOVE it!  She also sent some butterfly stickers but I don't see them in the picture - oops!

This great swap was hosted by Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' .  Stop by and visit.  There will be another mini swap in October/November with a flower theme, why don't you join us.  Thanks Cheryll!

I was given these flowers today by  a few of the ladies at work to celebrate my 35th Anniversary.  Aren't they gorgeous?  I was 21 and just out of college when I started working there.  My how time flies! Thanks Diana, Katie, Sondra, Svetlana and Sue.

Have a great week !
Good Night,

One Flower Wednesday

I just finished adding four flowers to my garden.  

See how the other gardens are growing at Karen's One Flower Wednesday.

It's way past my bedtime for a work night.

Sleep Sweet,

Friday Nights with Friends

I spent Friday night ( 2pm-midnight) with four other quilters.  We talked a lot, ate great food and did a little sewing in between.  I worked on July's Saltbox Sampler and finished the four blocks.

June's blocks

May's blocks

April's blocks

March's block

Just thought I'd share pictures of the other blocks I've finished (and not posted).

Stop by and visit Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' and see what what the FNwF were up to.

Happy Stitching!
