This week's theme is: KNITTING!

With the beginning of the school year upon me, today's post writing reminded me of a "get to know ya game" we played as a staff: Popcorn! Write down two things about you that nobody knows on a small piece of paper. When ready, we crumble our paper up and throw them at each other until the we are told to stop. At which time, we each pick up one paper to read out-loud, awaiting for someone to guess the person. In retrospect, I wish I had written down: 1. I wear slippers made by my mom  EVERY night to bed, no matter the season. 2. I've climbed the hundreds of steps in both the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty. (Pictures of those pre-digital) Darn! or maybe not, as who knows what kind of wild hairdo would be revealed! LOL!
You know I don't knit. Even during my mom's summer visit I had her teach me again...but by the time I was on  maybe the third row of a dishcloth I found myself missing my stitching and decided then and there to leave the knitting to my mom. (Love ya mom!) With that said, I appreciate and value all the beautiful things knitted and will share the link to all my mom's knitted creations. And, thanks for sharing your knitted works of heart with us here today.

Kids Say the Darndest Things!

My friend owns a dairy farm and last week one of her cows needed a c-section.
As the vet was stitching the cow up, her seven-year old grandson says:
"My Grandma makes better stitches than that!"

LOL!! Happy Sunday Stitching everyone.

Heart Flimsy

While watching for squirrels, I noticed my mom got her flannel hearts all sewn into a flimsy. 

Hmmm...I can't wait to cuddle under it this Winter.

Even if Winter still seems like a distance away.

Now to decide how to quilt it...I know she's contemplating
a fun pantograph or even FMQ outlining the hearts?? What do you think?
As for me, I'm off to chase those squirrels. Wishing everyone a great day!

This week's theme is: HOUSES!

This week I'm happy to highlight Ruth's "Modern Irish Bee" quilt above. Can you believe all these houses have  been created through a Bee?!?! You can see by her sketches the finishing touches she has planned for it and please click on over to her blog Charly & Ben's Crafty Corner to check out her entire post. Having never participated in a "bee" has me all curious now...so if you ever put one together do let me know as I'd like to participate.
