I'll have to admit...
Needleturn aplique is my favorite technique. I just finished this little bluebird that I made in the class I took. It was set up as a beginner class but I figure that I can learn hints from any class I take.
My old bones sure felt the gardening and were mighty sore! The end of April and beginning of May were just wonderful here and so right for planting. Last fall, I was having trouble walking so I didn't get my flower beds cleaned. That meant double work this spring. But it is worth the trouble when the flowers are all in bloom. My "vegetable" garden consists of a tomato plant and cucumbers in a pot on my deck alongside a pot of herbs and a few perennial herbs mixed in with the flowers.
Well, back to my quilt works....I go the quilt I made for my brother's retirement back from the long arm quilter and have to do the binding.
Happy Mother's Day tomorrow to all you mothers and grandmothers!
