Blogs, Inspiration and Thank yous!
I discovered blogs almost two months ago and have had a wonderful time reading and getting to know so many people. These same people and their blogs have provided me with lots of inspiration. Patti, Vicky and Jeanne provided a lot of encouragement for me to jump into applique and if you've been reading my blog you know that I've been having a BLAST! LOL Jeanne was kind enough to share her method of applique, Vicky gave me the final shove off the applique fence I was sitting on and Patti sent a long list of wonderful tips and hints. Ladies thank you!
When I posted last week I shared pics of three blocks and 10 people left comments - thank you, thank you!
Patti - yes, I'm very hooked on this thing called applique LOL
Jeanne - thank you for your kind words and your compliments
Doodlebug Gail - thank you for visiting and leaving such nice words
Vicky - thank you for all the adjectives :-)
Kim - yes, the method I've been using does have a lot of prep but once it's done then you just sit and sew.
Shelina - a block a day - LOL - almost! Thanks for visiting
Kimberly - thanks for your compliments
Bebbs - oh yes this is very addictive and you did warn me. :-)
Tara - thanks for your kind comments and for visiting my blog
Tracey - thank you so much and please take some time for you
Since I was here last to update this blog I've finished block# 7 and 8 so that completes the applique on my Pumpkin Hill quilt - WooHoo!!!!! Two blocks and 32 leaves - ugh! Not the greatest but "finished is better than perfect" LOL I need to practice those durn leaves! Now I have a bit of embroidery to do and then put the blocks together. This is so incredibly exciting.
My 9 year old grandson, Seth spent a few days here with us and we had a terrific time. We took him to see "Cars" - cute movie but otherwise we were just hanging out having fun!
Thought for today: Age is a state of mind! (today is my birthday)
Grandchildren (I don't have to raise them - LOL)
My hands and my eye sight (I hope I never lose their use)
Apple pie and ice cream - yum
Again, thank to all who have been so kind! Now, I'm off to dinner at Outback Steakhouse - double YUM!
