I took a class given through our local guild here, with Shannon Shirley called Bottles and Blooms. Because the bottles are all hand embroidered before appliqueing them onto the background, it did take me a year or so to get them all done.
Then I devised my own bloom design, as Shannon's way would have taken me at least another 3 years to do!!
I'll be hanging it there in my hall every spring!! Yay!
And speaking of spring, I also made this cute little 12" mini quilt to use in my kitchen for spring.
Machine appliqued then thread painted the edges to make it look furry!
I had fun free motion quilting the background around the bunny with tulips and bugs and grass and a spider on her web, too!! Hope you can see it in the photos!
We are still missing sweet Yogi, but our grandson Neal keeps us going!!
It is scary how fast he is growing!!
He loves pretending with Poppi, that saved wine corks are big rocks to be hauled by his trucks!!
So What are you making these dog days of summer? I am longing for fall...how about you?
