After my last finish from a week ago which I shared in my last post, I decided I needed to pick out one of the really old UFOs in my harvest basket. This is what came up. It is the Flower Sampler by Kirsten Schmidt (Kissy). She had a SAL online many years ago and I started it with two online friends. Now I am not even sure when the date was. The last posting I did about it was back in 2006 on my old blog. Yikes! Even then it was a UFO. Not for long though if I can help it. I picked out colors that are used in Makkum porcelain here in Holland. For some reason, I saw the Makkum plates or a vase when I first saw this design.
Since the weather has turned warm, it is great to sit in the garden and stitch. That is just what I will be doing up at Cranberry Cottage. We want to get up there to get away from a rock concert being held in the park just a block from our house. All I want to hear is bird song. *wink* I am taking my new seat frame which just arrived about an hour ago. I will post about it later. I want to have time to play with it and see how I like it.
It is like being outside at the moment with this pretty bouquet of peonies that my quilting friend Anita gave me on Wednesday evening at our quilt night. She did it to celebrate the fact that our house sold quickly. Thanks Anita! And yes, I do have to post the latest quilt blocks but I must confess I want to finish my own first.
Carolien and Sonja joined the quilt group and came for the first time. It was nice to have them there and they fit in so well that it was like they were always part of the group. Carolien totally spoiled me with the gift of the DVD Cranford. Thanks Carolien! Oh how I love this series. I want to live in Cranford and have Miss Maddy as my neighbor! So now I will be wishing for a rainy day to sit inside with this on while stitching.....
Have a happy and creative weekend!
Don't forget to stitch in the sunshine!
