Flowers on Wednesday and the Winner is...

The Winner of my Half Blogversary give away is (drum roll).
Karen of Journey of a Quilter.
Karen started One Flower Wednesday . joining in the fun has gotten me back to working on a Hexie quilt I started ages ago. Always good to get together with friends.
Congratulations Karen and thank you for One Flower Wednesday
A warm Thank you to All my blogger friends who stopped by last week and went into the draw.
Two blue flowers this afternoon.Hope you all enjoy your gardens today.

A shopping bag as a gift for a local nursing home.


I made a thin strip and stitched it across the side seams. Tying the ends in a bow gave a bit of shape to an ordinary square bag.
Easy detail to do.


Applause Please
I finished this quilt as you go string quilt. The string quilt was started about 1 year ago. Another project finished.
I do like finishing projects.
I have a friend who believes if you finish one project you can start 2 more.

What do you think?



Enjoy your week and Happy Stitching


Terry
