Anybody Out There...?????

Well, it's been such a long time since I posted....I hope there's still a few faithful readers around to read my ramblings!!! Lots of things going on in my life, but I've still found time to sew a few projects....just not posting any pics of them!!!

Anyways, the garden's been just wonderful! We've had very hot and dry weather the past few months, so things are growing really well! A touch of rain would be nice for the plants, though!

Hmmm....let's see what's new!!!

I've finally been working on my Truly Scrumptious blocks!! These are so much fun to stitch!! I must confess that I love switching from project to project and these blocks are a nice break from sitting at the sewing machine! It's also been so relaxing sitting in the shade out in the backyard and indulging in a little embroidery!
I also just received two new Cinderberry Stitches patterns... Fresh Breeze and Tea Party For Madeline. I like to order from my favorite internet shop called Be Sew Whimsical. Darlene has a great selection of patterns and her customer service is fantastic!!! I totally recommend her!! Here are my two new patterns along with a beautiful new Fat Quarter for my collection!

This is my little Tulip Table-Topper I made this spring, too. It's hand-pieced with various batik fabrics from my stash. I had bought the pattern a couple of years ago and thought that now was as good a time as any to complete it!!!
Well, I'll sign off for now and see what I can come up with for my next post!! Have a great day!

The embroidery and the tulip table topper are both lovely. Embroidery is just the thing for hot weather. Beautiful work:)
