Flower Gardening with Fabric.

In my last post I shared my flower garden with you. It got me thinking.....and off I went to search Etsy for flower quilts.

There were too many to share them all, so I picked some of the most interesting to share with you!

This sweet little cushion is by Roxy Creations. I just love the colors. Wouldn't this be just adorable in a little girls room?

Heather's 3 Stars is the creator of this Monet inspired quilt. It's a beautiful representation of Impressionism.

French Town calls this piece Timothy.....I call it beautiful! I love the way it's quilted.

I think this Black Eyed just as beautiful as it's living counterpart. Great job Joy Strings.

Thank you for visiting today :-)

Summer By the Pond

It has been a wonderful summer. We have been very blessed with beautiful weather and the flowers around the pond have given us a stunning show.

Thanks to my wonderful husband Frank and his new "toy", I will be able to revist our bounty during the cold snowy Northern Michigan winter.

I wish I knew the species of this stunning DayLily but it is one of those "natural" plantings brought in on the feet of a bird or duck. I split the original plant 9 years ago and have it all over the garden now.

Don't ya just love this fuzzy Shasta Daisy

I just love purple liatris. In a few years it should fill this whole area...Yea!

Frank caught this Black Eyed Susan just as it was opening.

And to finish...A day around the pond just wouldn't be the same without one of our croky bull frogs!

Thank you for stopping by today. See ya again soon :-)

Every Christmas needs an Angel...and here she is.
I borrowed some of the blocks from my Christmas quilt...and I think they make adorable pillows.

Let it snow.....I'll remember this in February!!!
Snowman is needle turn applique and hand quilted, too. I've used a hypoallergenic stuffing and it's soooo soft!

This Santa pillow is hand needle turn applique. It's hand quilted, too.
Needle turn applique, hand quilted on this one, too. Boy have I been busy!
