I have been working to stay caught up on this fun Mystery Quilt that Tonya at Hillbilly Handiworks has designed and been posting directions for twice a week.
Here are the pinwheel blocks I made last week, they were fun and new for me.
Below is this weeks embroidery. I had planned to use satin stitch around the windows but it wasn't looking to great so I switched to another stitch. When I completed the stitching I soaked the fabric to remove my washable marker lines and the thread I used faded all over the fabric. I was able to wash out most of the fade lines but some remain.
I am looking forward to Tonya's post tomorrow to tell me what to do next.
The following is a repeat of the post that disappeared last week while blogger was experiencing difficulties.
I love getting cards, all kinds of cards. Cards on holidays, birthdays, postcards from travelers, note cards with special messages. Once I receive a card it sticks around, I have a couple of special boxes for them.
This is a handmade Mother's Day card from my daughter Julie
This card of buttons I won in Karen's giveaway at The Painted Quilt.
This post card came with the buttons, check out the beautiful Incomparable Buttons made in South Africa at Button Mad.
Who doesn't love getting a note card from a friend. These beautiful cards were created by Marcia at
Have you sent a card to someone lately?
