Say It With Flowers
Ralph Waldo Emerson believed that "The Earth Laughs In Flowers". He would be smiling if he could view all the blog blossoms.
We have two very special ladies who encourage us to bloom as we create our flowers. Carol (Just Let Me Quilt) is our own personal cheerleader while Mdm. Samm (Sew We Quilt) inspires us to create sew many things. Thank you ladies.
Welcome to my version of a fabric flower garden.
A watering can is essential for any healthy garden. And who can resist bunnies hopping about.
I stitch Sunbonnet Sue theme blocks. Someday I will have enough for a quilt. Sue waters her flowers while her fan club members stand guard.
I was asked to create a banner for our local gardening club. I went to an initial meeting with a sketchbook, ideas and fabric swatches. Among the fabric samples was a panel with birds. They loved it. I am glad we have fabric artists who gift us with wonderful images. Quilting around the birds and flowers, applique names and the addition of a songbird fence gave them a very pretty banner.
When my sewing machine was new I practiced the stitches on this hanging which I gave as a gift. I saw it recently during a visit and thought it would be an interesting subject for Say It With Flowers.
Still a saucy cat even if he is facing the other direction. Must be catnip in the flowers.
Thank you for strolling through my garden. Check out the other blooms at today's blogs.
