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.

This is how far I got on my Monet's Garden...and got stuck.  Just didn't know where i wanted to go with it....so, into the closet about a year ago or more...

I took it out last night, laid it out here, and then re-folded it and put it back....
Hmmm, then this morning I re-considered and now am adding some more of the white text fabric on the two opposite sides...

Something like this...I will need to cut and baste some half-hexagons for the sides, too.  
I have it next to my seat in our tv room ready to be worked on in the evenings...


 here is the 2nd hexagon project that has been languishing for about 6 years!!!
                                     "Snow Flowers"...

this one has to be appliqued onto the all white background--and then
I will figure out what appliques should be added around the edges....

That one is in the wings...they are both on my 2017 list of WIPS...

Look what emerged today??? spring must be coming for sure....
and finally .....

Christmas on the Farm update:  my canning jars--I wish I had made those
covers darker (I may end up darkening them with a fabric pen), but I like the fruits inside--good for Christmas pies....
