garden party

These are my snake blocks which I will now refer to as Libby's worms.....sounds so much more pleasant, don't you think. I do not mind worms in the garden but snakes......ewwwwwwww, they give me the willies. My flower basket block needs a bit more work....the flower centers still need to be stitched on. I was going to start this block all over because one of my flowers ended up displaced and rather pale looking and my dragonfly is a bit cockeyed. I ripped off the pale flower, added a couple more and figured my dragonfly was just a bit juiced on some nectar. I'm going to just be happy with it. Libby has real garden worms and her garden is stupendous!

I think I spend a squillion hours on the stars.....who knew paper piecing could be so hard. I think I need pp for really dumb dummies 101. When I finally got to the last star, I inverted the colors in one of the parts. Oh well.....it's done and I am very pleased with it.

I'm making one of those baskets where you cover rope with fabric and zigzag the coils together. The one I'm making is called a CapNap Bowl. I'm using a Bali Pop which is a jelly roll of batiks.


Someone can't wait until it's finished to take her nap.

While I was outside taking the pictures of my blocks I couldn't resist the roses.


Thanks for stopping by.....I love it when you do.

Yvonne, your garden club blocks are great!...I'd rather worms too...snakes give me the shivers!

Love the flag piece too.

And who can resist that beautiful fur baby!

Libby said...

I must say - they do rather look like my worms *s*

Love all your blocks. I'm ready to start the one tomorrow. The roses are so pretty. Nothing like a vibrant bit of color in the yard to put a smile on your face.

Your snakes, whoops, worms look good. And who cares if the dragonfly is a bit juiced up? All is good.
I started a basket similar to yours but ran out of rope. Never did finish it. Fun to do, though.

I love that you also work on several projects at the same time. I do because I get bored doing just one thing. Your blocks look great.

Another flag quilt! I love it! And your basket block also! I'll reserve judgment on the worms!

You've been a busy gal! Your blocks look beautiful! I'm not much on paper piecing! I think it doesn't like me! ;o) Cheers!
