Patterns, Pineapple and Primroses!

She did it again...another fun and fabulous paper piecing pattern! Who doesn't like garden gloves? So much fun and protection too!:)
Amy of "During Quiet Time" let me test another pattern...loved it...even though I did it wrong! I meant for the green dots to be the bottom of the gloves not the top!

Oh well....this is a lesson for all of you on what not to do! Want to sew a pair of your own...go visit Amy's etsy shop...and see the pattern pieced the right way!:)

Finished a few more things....

...this embroidery piece for Jo in my Hoop Up! group...she wanted whimsical and slightly creepy...I think an owl with snaps for eyes and a lion with a wind blown tummy does it for me!:) Click here to see what Jo made for Leila, our other group member, it's amazing!:)

Made a couple more minis, Nancy from work gave me the scraps for the mini on the right...scraps from my Granny Square quilt are in the zig zag...guess I should really finish the Granny!:)

Made a double decker pineapple upside down cake for the best father-in-law in the world...yummers!

Cleaned out the veggie garden...see that pile in the middle...it needs to go in the compost bins....soon!:)

(Old Gardeners never die, they just spade away! Bwhahahaa!)

I think I need a new pair of gloves before planting anything...too bad I can't make some!;)

Before I start planting I need to iron, trim and sew these 32 blocks for Nichol's quilt in the Around the Bend and Across the Pond Round Robin. Why did I pick five directional fabrics?!!!



  1. Hey Dee are you working on Greta's quilt, I thought I had just sent it to Jo????? Love your garden, looks like you could grow lots of veggies there, and that pineapple cake....Yummy!!

  2. Heheh...you are correct Jo...it is Nichol's quilt I'm working on...duh!:)

  3. Looks like Spring has Sprung. Oh the garden.... I so want a garden.... the wonderful veggies you are going to get out of that. I miss ya lady. Went to Panera with your birthday twin the other day and thought of you.

  4. I think that Dee and Dena and I should some day get together for lunch!! I love your garden too....I'm super envious of it since we are without even grass or soil once again. Ugh the LV valley. :)
