I can't show you any
sewing projects because
well, there isn't much to
show off.
But, I do have some beautiful blooms

show you all.
Coneflowers (Echinacea)
are one of my all-time
favorite flowers.

It starts like this and

it looks like a completely different

I started with one lone plant
and ended up with

my front flower bed consumed with beautiful
pink blooms
and many Happy Bees.

And for a little

Hope you all are having a great week
And enjoyed the flowers I picked just for

Watkins Star Pattern Release and Testers Reveal

 After finishing my picnic quilt, I decided to

write the PATTERN
14 pages, 16 photos....
and you can find it HERE...
 I never imagined two years ago
when I picked up quilting that I
would be writing a pattern. 
I made a call out on my blog and some
very gracious ladies tested out
and here are a few of the results.....
Mary Pat of Quietly Quilting,
Martina of Sunshine Quilting
Shauna of Shauna's World
Maria of Mia's Creation
Andrea at Tideline Quilts
Aren't they just gorgeous?  It amazes me
how the same pattern can look so different.
One of these ladies had never pieced a quilt before.
I have several more to show you,
but I will save them for tomorrow.
Thanks again to these lovely ladies
who were so willing to lend a hand.
