Completed Projects

I've neglected my blogging for a few days to finish a couple of projects underway. Here is a picture of the Butterfly Garden Wall Hanging that I just posted. I like the way it turned out so all in all, it's ok that my first attempt didn't work out because this one is 100 times better.

I also completed a Hummingbird Table Runner but have not yet posted it to Hummingbird Treasures. I need at least one more good photo to go with it and I think this one calls for Big T. I need a full length photo and it is 54 inches long. But here is an idea of what it looks like.

Spring is in full bloom around here. I have a pollen headache after we went for a short ride and out to lunch. The North Carolina Red Bud trees are just popping out in the most beautiful shade of hot pink. (Alyssa, you would love the color - I wish I could capture it for you.) Also the Bradford Pears and the Forsythia everywhere you look. And of course daffodils. I also saw the first tulips on our ride.

I love our new ceiling fans. This should really help my studio which faces directly south. Of course, it's still a little early to have them on but I had to test them now didn't I?

Oh before I forget again - here is my second block on the jelly roll challenge from Moose on the Porch. I am so excited, I can hardly wait for the third block. Now I have to remember how to put it out on Flickr so I get an entry in the drawing. Hmmmm - where did I put those instructions?

Hugs to my friends who read this faithfully and are truly becoming a real part of my growing up.



  1. OMG, can I just say, I don't even think love can fully capture how I feel about that Butterfly Garden wall hanging. It is just so bright and springy and totally just everything I adore :)

    Having never heard of the redbud, I of course, had to Google it. need to get your camera out and take me some PICTURES. SOOOO pretty. The pear trees in our neighborhood were in full bloom less than a week ago but a couple hard rains did them in. We are still blanketed in yellow green pollen...and I've been hopped up on Benadryl, Astepro (nasal antihistamine) and my lovely pink eye drops because I ended up with a case of allergic conjunctivitis...again. GRRRR. Spring, I adore, the allergies....BAH!!!

  2. Alyssa - You're good for my morale. I like the Butterfly Garden also - if (when) this one sells, I think I'll make me one to hang. I'll get a picture of the redbuds tomorrow or Sunday. They are just starting and will stay in bloom for several weeks (unless we have a hard wind or rain).

  3. The wall hanging is so springy, bright and cheerful! I love the hummingbird fabric and table runner! I wish I worked as quickly as you do!! Actually the problem is that I get sidetracked too easily....

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed yours, too. Love the table runner!

  5. Wow!! They are all so beautiful! LOVE the hummingbird table runner!

  6. I love that table runner. The flowers are on it are so pretty. Perfect for the spring in NC. I need to get my hummingbird feeders out. They will be arriving soon. Enjoy springtime!
