Daisy Star is a flimsy!

Good evening everyone,

I just spent about 1 1/2 hours talking to a very good friend. She reminded me that I haven't posted a blog in a while, so I figured I'd better get with it before I forget all I wanted to post. LOL

Kevin and I had a stomach bug a couple of weeks ago. That really put both of us out of commission for a while. In fact, we both pretty much stayed in bed for 2 days. That is unheard of for us. Thankfully, we are both right as rain now. (grin) Speaking of rain....we have had a lot of it. Hard to believe that we are on the last half of May. It has been cold and rainy all month. Still no garden planted, but what would be the use? Mom has seeds planted, but says they are not coming up. I hear that it may get up to 75* tomorrow with sunshine. I may just sit outside all afternoon. LOL

I finished sewing the borders on to the Daisy Star quilt this weekend. I think it turned out pretty good.
I had Kevin hold it up for me so I could get a picture. Now it joins my stash of unquilted tops. I am now trying to get Double Delight put together. It was a Bonnie Hunter mystery a year ago. Lots of little pieces, so I work on it, then put it up, but I really do want to finish it. I am also spending my evenings doing some redwork. Sometimes that is so peaceful and relaxing for me. Also kind of a no brainer. Just follow the lines. Look at this cute little saying. I love this.
I also finished this 'honey' project.
I also finished this 'primitive friends' redwork this past weekend. It was a busy weekend, craftwise.
I love to take these little redwork projects and make small wall quilts out of them. I use the redwork as a center of the quilt, then build blocks or strips around them. They are a breeze to quilt up and I can use from my scrap bins. These make great little gifts. I have several ready, now, just waiting on me to get creative and come up with the rest of the quilts .

I thank you all for visiting. I know I have been a bad blogger, but sometimes I am just not in the mood to write anything. In those instances, you probably would not want to read what I write. LOL Everyone have a great day. I will try to do better.

No worries with the blogging Winona! I think there are a lot of us bloggers going through the same thing lately... I know I am, and others that I follow... We blog when we blog! 8-)
Your quilt top is great! Love your color choices!
Darling redwork creations too! 8-)

Winona~ Just love the redwork projects of course I love anything prim looking.I think I have that primitive friends one too but just havent' gotten around to working on it. too many unfinished projects that I start with good intentions and then they just get left for another day but that day never seems to come :)
Oh also glad to hear you are both doing better.

I love the daisy star. The colors go so well together. Your redwork is really pretty. I can no longer do the fine needlework due to arthritis but I love seeing what others do. That's a great idea, using a redwork piece for the center of a wall quilt.

I know just what you're saying about sometimes not having anything you want to blog about. I am the same way.

The Daisy Star came out beautifully! I love the pattern and colors. I bet it would look fantastic in jewel tone batiks too! Hmmm... sounds like something to put on my "want to do" list. LOL Your red work looks fantastic. So glad you updated. I check your blog frequently.
