Lots to share!

Pictures of block #1 and #2 from my BOM project (#3 and #4 have arrived) and my first hexagon rosette.

I've only been blogging for a little over two months and have been having more fun than one person should be allowed to have. LOL

Blogging has provided me with a great wealth of new friends but especially with lots of INSPIRATION. Patti, Vicky and Jeanne truly inspired me to try hand applique and as we all know it's been great fun. Chatting with Libby (A Simple Girl) I was inspired to finally attempt English paper piecing and I'm having alot of fun with that too. If you know anything about me you know that I love handwork - yes I love to do bindings - so these new ventures have provided me life beyond bindings. LOL

Thought for today: Enjoy what you're doing with all your heart!

Gratitudes: my hands, my eyesight, thimble-its (I detest using a thimble), darker thread for my hexagons (looks much better)

(someday soon I'll learn how to add links)

Your applique is quite wonderful. It is hard to believe that you are new to this. I agree that it is fun to meet fellow bloggers and to be inspired by others.

Agree that blogging is fun. I started just a few weeks ago, and I am now a blogomaniac. Even at work I take a little time to blog.
Your BOM is so nice.

Your BOMs are gorgeous. I am going to have to try this one soon. I really enjoy handwork, sometimes much more that machine work - so WHY do I have a fear of the "A" word. Time to put that one behind me!

Vicky said...

Yes, it is, Susan!

Darlene, your hexagon block is gorgeous! That's on my some-day list. And love love love the BOM blocks! YOU are the inspiration here, my dear!!

((HUGS))

Susan said...

Love all your blocks. The hexs are addictive. Are you making a full quilt? The applique blocks look great.

Tracey said...

Boy are you fast!! I had *seriously* considered doing the Country Cousins BOM. *Seriously* But, now I'm kinda glad that I didn't...I found another BOM that I absolutely adore and couldn't pass up. However, I may still buy the book yet. ;o)
Looking good!
