Spring Stitching / English Paper Piecing Project

I've slowly started to make more progress on the english paper piecing project. The last three flowers (of the first group of twelve) need to be whip-stitch.
It is always fun to see how, little by little, an entire garden of english paper pieced flowers grows!

I'm halfway there! Below you see the preparations for the other group of twelve hexagon flowers. The flora supply case that one of my dear friends made for me will house the embroidery part of the project... it is perfect for keeping all the floss, hoop, embroidery designs, blank squares of fabric, and the rest of the supplies needed to make the embroidered centers.

Another dear friend sent me a lovely gift, which in part included that super cute and practical see thru pouch in the background. Can't wait to put it to good use!
Haven't been feeling well today, but hopefully I'll get to do a little bit of stitching... hopefully. May this weekend do you well!
Until next time!

Countdown ... 1


The final of the three projects! This wasn't a swap, but a 'just because' token of appreciation of friendship. It arrived at its destination this past Saturday, so I hope when it is open it makes my friend smile! I know she likes: cats, to garden, victorian/cottage and country french decor... hopefully this will fit a bit among her likes :-). 

There are a couple of thank you notes (with a couple of goodies) that I need to send internationally, that is, once I'm able to step out of the house. Freezing cold weather has kept me inside the house for sometime. Sunday was freezing cold, however I'm so thankful that I was able to attend a special assembly held indoors in a large auditorium with my family. This week temperatures will go up a bit, supposedly, I'm definitely hoping so!

Now I can start to focus on keeping up with my personal projects... 2 english paper pieced quilts for my little ones, the Flower of the Month lap quilt for mom, and a few embroidery projects that must be completed. I'm hoping to get busy with all of them soon! 
Until next time!
