Promises and Borders

Thank you all for your kind 'welcome back's to me. I have missed blogging. I haven't even commented on blogs much in the past couple of months, but I'm trying to change that before I get waist deep in the garden. LOL It is raining here, but 60*. Such weird weather for the end of Feb. Makes me wonder what kind of a summer we are going to have. Last summer was so hot, I hope this isn't a repeat.

I am working on several BOMs this year. Not really a surprise, huh? LOL Anyway, so far I am keeping up. I thought I'd share Promises and Borders with you first. Oh my goodness, I am loving this BOM. It is from Jenny at Elefantz. I picked out the fabrics and have them already cut to size. Here is the first block.
This is a closeup of the verse.
Here is block 2.
A closeup of block 2....
Jenny used variegated floss, so I went to JoAnn's and bought some with a coupon. I like embroidering with this.
Aren't these the cutest blocks? I love embroidering the Bible verses. I can hardly wait for the next block to be released, which should be in a couple of days.

Thank you for visiting. Please come again. You all have a wonderful day.

I Am Finally Back!

Now I just hope I can remember how to make a post. LOL I took a long, 2 month break. I always have trouble getting back in the groove after Christmas and this year was no different. I have been working on some things and will show those soon. I just didn't feel like writing about anything, I guess. Several times I came to my blog and intended to post, then shut it down without doing anything. I think I needed the break because I feel like it is time to come back now.

We have had a wonderful winter, with warm temps and very little snow. I believe we are working towards setting a record for warmest winter ever. Now it feels like spring is here. We have watched the squirrels play like crazy today. The geese have been flying north all week and the grass is starting to green up. No robins, yet, though. We are thinking about the garden. I have my seeds ordered. I also ordered some baby chicks. They aren't due to arrive till the first week in May, though, so we have plenty of time to get their brooding area all ready.

The family is all doing well and all the furbabies are getting feisty in hopes that spring is here. LOL I have been working on some projects, but that Kindle sure has detoured me. LOL I get started reading on a book and can't put it down till I am finished. I am back to reading again. I have always loved reading, but put it on the back burner for a few years. I read on the computer and quilted. Now I am trying to work a little of everything in to my day.

I finished the Dec. block of Birdie Stitches. It was another fun block.
  After I got it embroidered, I decided to go ahead and put the blocks together in a top. This was such a fun BOM to do. I am working on several more BOMs, but more about them another time. Here is the top after I got it together.
I'll share some closeups. It is too big to get the whole thing closely. This is the Jan. and Feb. blocks at the top and the Apr. and May at the bottom.
These are the Feb. and Mar. blocks at the top and the May and Jun. blocks at the bottom.
Here are the Jul. and Aug. blocks at the top and the Oct. and Nov. blocks at the bottom.
Finally here are the Aug. and Sep. blocks at the top and the Nov. and Dec. blocks at the bottom.
Here is another view of the whole top. Then I am done with pictures today. (grin)
I feels good to be back. I am going to try to make a post or two a week, but gardening season is coming up, so that may not happen. Sometimes life just gets in the way. LOL If anyone is still out there reading this, thank you. Everyone have a good day. I'll be back in a day or so with another project I am working on. I figure as slow as I am, I better just share one project at a time. LOL
