snippets & scraps...

I worked on my little wool applique quilt today, finally finishing up the saw-tooth border...
I did only two sides with the border, the other two are more flannel plaid homespun...
I like the look!

I'll try my hand at machine-quilting it now...
i want to 'echo' the design of the pot, stems, flowers & leaves...
i'll use a contrasting brown cotton thread for this....

I think it will be pretty when finished!

I have to start on a needle punch project next, a little rabbit....
and I hope my cross stitch model makers out there
(You know who you are!!)
are stitching your fingers off !!!!

well i'm off to make roasted chicken for dinner tonight...scratch biscuits & fruit salad...
I can't wait to plant my garden!!!

Hi Lori. Enjoyed my visit, catching up with your doings, and love the little cupboard-door quilts. I'm sure they'll do well for you.

Hope to see you soon.~Diane
