I just love tulips, don't you? I so wished I could have picked these outside, but alas, like I told you last time, I live in Wisconsin. Tulips don't pop here until sometime in May (at the earliest). No, I got these at the grocery store. Pink and white is my favorite!! (And I deserved them!!)
I'm a bad friend! (Actually, that's not true....but this time I'm so ashamed, that I could be a bad friend.) So often I show you things that my internet swap friends make, but this time I completely forgot to show you this awesome fabric bowl that my dear, real live, living close to me friend, Susie, made me for my birthday last month. Where is my brain???
Isn't it cool? Apparently you twist fabric around clothes line and sew the whole mess together somehow. Don't ask me! But check it out....it is perfectly round, and wonderful! Right now I have it on my cocktail table in front of my couch in the living room, but it was too dark in there this morning to take pictures, so I took it in the dining room (and I see the dust on that table...shame, shame on me!!) Thank you, Susie! I love it!!
Last time, I told you that I would show you the awesome mini quilt that I got from Ruthie for the STUD (swap til U drop) group. The whole thing contains my favorite things. Little did I know that she would blow me away by paper piecing all the items. I don't know (can't/never learned/no patience for) paper piecing.
Ad here are some close-ups. She embroidered the bottom two items from Alice in Wonderland......so cute!
And put my name in the top stars......how clever!!
So, that's about it for today! I'm working on a commission quilt and hopefully will finish it today or tomorrow. Here is a sneak peek.............
As you can tell, it's not even quilted yet. So, until next time........be well, and have fun! Life is too short not to try to enjoy yourself at least a little every day!! Go buy yourself a tulip!! LOL
