A Couple of Wins!

My blog reading, commenting, and posting has been pretty sporadic  this year, to say the least. I have had the good luck to win a couple of great giveaways, though. First I won this Connecting Threads kit from Billie. It is called Audrey's Sewing Accessories Kit. I think this will  really come in handy if I ever get the chance to make it. Thank you so much, Billie. It is great.
Here is the fabric for the kit.
Next I won this adorable little wall quilt kit from Paula. It is called Chicken Hearted. Isn't this just the cutest thing? I hope to start on it this week. I plan to do needle turn applique on it. I need the practice and this looks ideal for practice. Paula, I really love this little kit and can hardly wait to get started on it.
I have been doing some embroidery this week. I have all 5 of the Retro Nine Patch stitchery blocks done. I am now ready to begin block #6 of Birdie Stitches.  In between working on BOM's I did these two little stitcheries. The first one is called Apples and Blossoms.
This is called Bless Our Home. I love this design so much that this is at least the 3rd one I have done. I plan to turn these into little mini quilts. I love taking stitcheries and adding scraps around them to create a little mini. (grin)
I have been waiting for storms to get here all evening. I believe they must have gone south of us. All we have had are a few sprinkles and a couple of thunder boomers. We had a nice rain yesterday morning, so we are ok on moisture. Our garden is looking great. I'll share some pictures of it soon. Well, it is getting late, so I need to get this posted. Thank you for visiting. Please have a great night.

That is such a cute chicken piece. It should be fun. Glad the garden id doing well ... await pictures. The Neighbor's gardeners came today and are working in the rain. I paid them a bit on the side to take care of the overgrown enkianthis and two trees whose branches are now out of reach in the street-side bed. I can hardly wait to see that jungle under control!

You have some nice wins to work on now. I love your stitcheries, too. Please take a picture once you turn the "house" one into a mini quilt, okay?

Cute wins and your stitcheries are wonderful, as always. You may be sporatic in blogging but it looks like you are staying out of mischief LOL.
