I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Mom's Poms is together....I see that some of them are swaying in the breeze (LOL= not exactly straight!);--))).....

I am in the process of making another version as I LOVE this pattern...hopefully the next one's stems and leaves will turn out a bit better.....
And so...I am deeming this one a Primitive Version....lol
AND  Poms is being put on hold while I finish up:

                                                     Fi's Forest Fairies quilt....

                                              A closer view of this lovely Michael Miller fabric that
                                                          I am using for the four border sections

             I love how the hydrangeas  give this quilt an "Old Fashioned" flair

Quilting away this afternoon on the top border.....each one is 52.5" x 13"--so
they take about 1.5 hrs to get QAYGo-ed......I find this process very relaxing and good
therapy right now....a little Chopin on my radio, a cup of Chai and many memories floating
through my head....good recipe for me today....5 weeks now....time marches on.....

Darling Kota is now watching her favorite Red Sox and favorite Yankees go head-to-head 
(Jeff is a Red Sox fan and his wife, Lin, is a Yankee fan) --so Kota is kind of                               conflicted....hahaha,,,

I hope you are enjoying this lovely Sunday....my DH is out mowing the lawn and tomorrow we have friends coming for a bbq...I am trying to keep busy....
hugs to all
Julierose, La Blageuse (Je me souviens)
