Polka Dot Girls

I'm on the mend - not 100% but better than I was earlier this week. Last night while watching three Law and Order episodes I finished stitching another Polka Dot Girl(s) block.

Wendy has finished her 9 patch quilt - you must visit her blog and take a peek. It's stunning! Yes, I'm going to repeat myself - sorry, bear with me! Last August I asked Wendy if she would like to exchange 3" finished 9 patch blocks and lucky for me she excitedly agreed. Now, we each have a wonderful quilt filled with a memories to share for years to come. I've participated in block swaps in the past but never a one-on-one swap and I much prefer the one-on-one version. If you have an opportunity to do something like this with a far away friend, I highly recommend it.

Thank you for all the get well wishes - I appreciate your kind words! And, do stop by to visit again!

In Friendship!

I really want to do the Polka Dot Girls. Do you get the pattern in the states or order it from Aus. I am so happy you are starting to feel better. Have a great Easter.

Lovely PDG stitchery! They make want to do them! The pattern is laying there ready for me! The only thing I need is to have the days expanded a little.(Well, a lot!) LOL
Take care and Happy Easter!

Hey EBFF, I was so sorry to read that you've been 'under the weather'!! :( I've been gone more than I've been home the last few days and had done NO blog reading. Sooooo, I am so glad that you are feeling better!!! :) I do just love those PD Girls!! Just too cute! And Wendy's quilt is GORGEOUS! Here comes Peter Cottontail...hoppin' down the bunny trail....:D

Despite not feeling well, you've certainly accomplished a lot! Now, why am I not surprised?!?!? ;o) I am glad that you are starting to feel better. I'm pretty busy right now machine embroidering! ;o)It's hard work multi tasking you know! lol Love your PDG. You're using just one colour? Well, hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!

Wendy said...

I'm just starting on that block, it look fantastic in red, I love it.
I'm so happy you are feeling a little better. I prefer the one-on-one as well.

I'm glad your feeling better and sorry that you were sick. Your Polka Dot Girls are adorable. I'm gonna have to get that pattern I guess. It's so dang cute.

Patti said...

I'm very happy to hear you are on the mend. Being sick is no fun at all! As usually your stitchery is stunning. What cute patterns these are!

Cheryl said...

Glad your are doing better. Boy I love your Polka Dot Girls stitchery...nice work!

Hope you are much better now. Nothing worse than feeling like you are going to die, and then afraid you won't! Your work is beautiful, and PDG's are enchanting.

I see that Beth asked the same question I was wondering. I've done a little internet searching, but haven't found a US distributor. I can tell I am lining up for a serious Bronwyn Hayes addiction! Hoping to find it in Paducah in a few weeks, and have a couple like candidate vendors. If not, I'll have to succumb via international shipping!

Knot Garden said...

The 9 patch quilts made by you and Wendy are both beautiful. Love the embroidery too.
Glad you're feeling a bit better:)

Ginger Patches said...

Yay! You're feeling better! I'm so happy to hear that good news :) You finish those stitcheries sooo fast!! O.k. I'm going to go peek at that quilt!

Dawn said...

Oh I"m so glad you are feeling better. So many have gotten this and can't shake it. I just love your polka dot girls!

Nan said...

I am very pleased you are feeling "sew" much better, my friend!! Your PDG is adorable. I think your swap with Wendy turned out wonderfully well for both of you! It is a great idea!

Carole said...

Hey Sweetie, are you doing your PDG all in red? Like 497 dmc? Just curious. I have begun working on Miss Louise. She is my favourite. I love chooks! Did a search on your blog last nite to see if you had stitched her name out. I then checked Wendy's and decided that I was going to copycat you guys! ;o)
