Slowing down this evening

After a full day of working outside I am more than ready to spend the evening relaxing and doing some embroidery work. 



I am so close to being almost done, I am getting excited. After all these years of off and on working on this project, it looks like I might be able to give these quilts to my 3 girls for Christmas this year. 



I am making each one and myself, so a total of 4 times 12 blocks 


Thats right 48 blocks, now you know why I am so ready to have this finish.


I have just two blocks left,



As you can see its December's block.


The pattern is Ruby's Garden by Waltzing with Bears from 2007 and I believe that is the same year it was offered as a BOM. I decided to just recieve the pattern without fabric. Chose to pick my own. 
Maybe this part can be completed before I go to my daughters for the "Little Dudes" 3rd birthday.



A proud Grandma here.

  3. Your entire post has left me inspired... I love your "red work" embroidery.. it is lovely!! I also love to make colorful embroidery but am just starting on my quest in that direction. So nice that you have worked slow and steady on this project and now it is almost done... I haven't visited your blog in a while and I love the egg count you have added and the clipart about Love, Laughter and Friends! Thanks for sharing your artwork and thoughts :) Excited to see how you bring each quilt together now :) Kathi

    1. You reminded me that I do need to update my egg count, the girls are very busy laying these days. I too was please when I found that clip art, I love the look of the Arts and Craft style. My home decore is in that style so I figured why not my blog reflect a little of that too. Thank you for your nice comment and taking the time to write it.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
