gardens and quilts and stuff



The one part of my life right now that seems just right is my new little back yard. It's already quite pretty and has plenty of spots for me to tuck things into. And that's what I've been doing. So when unpacking gets to be a bit much...that's where you'll find me. I'm planning some pretty pillows for the chairs...I think it's going to be a very girly kind of place.



Summer is also a good time for some leisurely projects...I've decided that "A Dash of Sugar" (you know--that free pattern over there on the right?) would make a very pretty shower curtain. So I think that's going to happen.

Summer also seems like a good time to find some new homes for a few of my quilts. There are some pieced quilts for sale up on my website and there are 2 appliqued quilts as well. And more will follow. Obviously these are one of a kind. I enjoyed designing and making them and hopefully someone has just the right spot for one.



Be sure to scroll down just a bit...there are 2 giveaways you don't want to miss.

Dash of sugar is so pretty. I love that patio. It seems like the perfect spot to knit (cotton thread for summer) or applique.
