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.

                             A flowering view along my front walk...ferns and blossoms...


Love the darks on 
this lily

                                             Such vibrant pinks


                                   Lovely light peach

                                             And more to come.........

I guess they really like the humidity we've had all last week; now the cold front
has swept it all away and we are very comfortable....

The start of a new flowering basket medallion project to be machine appliqued...
(L. basket shape and R two little flowers....I need to make more and then do some
bias stems....) 

Good news is that:
My machine will be ready on this Tuesday for pick up....so I hope to finish cutting the
other flowers and the background....
                            A closer look at my indoor flowers and the sepals around them....

          The sepals fabric reminded me of my lavender which has bloomed profusely
As I have been  under the weather for a bit, I haven't posted in a while.....

But, I am now starting to feel better....;))))); 
hoping to get back to both my
sewing and my posting schedule....soon....
In the meantime, 

Hugs to you all, Julierose, La blageuse (on-the-mend-euse)

  7. Hi Julie, glad to hear you're feeling better, we're passing around a summer cold here.
    Your lilies are beautiful. Thanks for sharing your photos.
    We have Astilbe and Crocosmia blooming in the neighborhood.
    And butterflies, at first the Swallowtails came in, now it's the Monarchs.
    Lovely time!

  8. Your lilies are so beautiful...I have been fighting those darn red lily beetles for the last 3 years...I am trying to control them without chemicals, but I may have to use something soon.

  9. Oh those beautiful day lilies, how I love them! Mine were all finished months ago but I see small green shoots peeking through the soil again. Pleased to read you're feeling better and by now you should have Helga back all ready to begin the applique for your basket medallion, love the fabric by the way.

  10. pretty! And you're designing applique, that's good.
    Lucky it's cooler... my flowers are dying from the 100 degree weather here in sunny sunny, VERY sunny hot Colorado.

  11. Gorgeous applique flowers. They reflect all the beautiful flowers in your garden. I look forward to seeing more.
