Yesterday

Nicole and I walked to the Ann Arbor farmer's market yesterday and I bought this beautiful bouquet of flowers for only $4!!

Here is a view from the top. It is about 8 inches in diameter. They are just beautiful and they smell great too. I also got 2 beautiful heads of leaf lettuce one green and one red for $1.50 each! I think we need to go every Wednesday!

Last night was quilting at CHV. I brought several things to work on and this was one of them. I needed to hand turn the binding on my "Cats in the Cabin" wall hanging. I got about 3/4ths done and had to stop as my left arm was killing me! So Pauline kindly finished the rest for me. Thanks, Pauline!! I found the cat pattern online but designed the rest fo the quilt around that. I like how it turned out.

I participated in the Designer Mystery BOM at the Fat Quarter Shop this past year. Here is my finished top. It was a great experience and if you are interested they are doing another one this time with stars. Hope over and visit them. The star one is done with Glace by three Sisters (Moda). It looks really nice and is only $9.99 per month including shipping. I did buy the finishing kit which included all the material for the sashing and borders.

Now, I really want to do a Spooktacular swap. If you are interested please contact me at mamaspark@gmail.com I have 5 people and I need 7 more to make this work. You can see the link to the details in the post from yesterday. You would not have to have your blocks to me until september 1st either. C'mon, what are you waiting for??

Those flowers take me back. they look like Sweet Williams and they were my favourite uncle's favourites. He was a William and his garden was full of them.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
