More Quilt Blocks

These blocks surfaced in my most recent clean-up and organizing frenzy. I decided it was time to finish putting them together. They came together nicely and will make a nice pillow for my mom.

Enjoy your week.

Quilt Blocks

I am having the best time making these quilt blocks. I have nine or ten made. I'm not sure if I'll use them all in the same quilt or not. We'll see. I always start with a plan, but along the way things change. :)!

I need to get back to the sewing machine now, though.

Have a great day.

New Fabric, New Quilt

This lovely stack of fabric is patiently waiting for me to turn it into one of the quilts I have floating around in my head.

Soon. Very soon.

Handmade Cards

Isn't this card beautiful? I love it. Last week, I wasn't feeling well. An ear infection of all things. HUH!? What? I felt like a two year old. So my friend Maxine made and sent me a couple of cards. What a treat. This is my favorite. I love everything about it - the colors, design, words by Rumi. I actually plan to frame it.
Among her many talents, Maxine is quite an accomplished calligrapher, and as you can see below, she has quite a sense of humor as well. Vincent arrived early in the week.
One of the great things about Maxine's cards is that her envelopes are as much fun and as beautiful as the cards....and she always has the best stamps! I love it when I am the beneficiary of her work.

Have a beautiful week.
