'Tis now the MONTH  of  MAY 2016

I am glowing with satisfaction of my front and backyard flower garden in place.  
The satiny, ruffled and as fancy as a party dress, garden peonies (P. lactiflora) are the center of attention.  Thanks  ~ God's nickname is dear Mother Nature.

Beauty in God's Flowering Season

Lovely evening sunset on the patio.

 Te revival... and surviving of last years Hydrangea.... looking the just the right environment of sun and shade and good watering in a pot.  Praying it will thrive!

The Month of March 2016

Somewhere during the month of March..... there was basketball madness.....  
. . . Then my Senior Citizen Quilt club that meets at our local Ralph Ellison Libary.... began a very creative MYSTERY QUILT...

It really stumped me.... I was trying to read... and think too much... in light and dark color combinations... I didn't like this block  

hmnnn.... I have a great prayer partner.... and we take it to the Lord almost daily.... 
 ..there is the EVERLASTING newscasting of the Election Year  politics.... 
 NOW.....back to the creative spirit of picking fabric combinations..... this is what pulled me into the sewing room once again....

THANKS..... for sharing my posts today....

Indian Girl Quilt

Good Morning Oklahoma World & Beyond

Remember My Cousin Theola..... well there is a family heirloom quilt she wants repaired..... of course I always thing of a duplicate!

 You can see the wear and tear...... the yarn hair and ribbon and the trim on the little cape.   They are all girls!!

Here's a pattern I've keep close at hand!

Happy Stitching Days

What goes with me?  A small goal of completing (shamefully) SIX sets of HEXIES for six great ladies in the Inchy Hexagon Swap.   

A good thing.... I really cannot go start a quilt until I do the catch up.   The right thing..  Hopefully I'll bring a smile.   The Inchy Hexagon facebook page 
**  GO VISIT EM! **  click above ...  or click on my sidebar!

A few "want-to's"    The OKC Quilt show 2016 ... I clicked the beautiful quilting feathered designs on something as simple as flying geese!

"want-to" #2 ...  this reminds me Grandma Lottie's Family heirloom quilt.... this is bridal

And My cousin Theola..... packed around in her trunk... and pulled out one set of unfinished "Dutch Girls".... quite ugly and really not usable...

Might be and "NOT WANT-TO" project......

Happy and Blessed

You (and I) have brains in our head .....

Oh the places I AM GOING.... in 2016.... this is just a snapshot of the GYPSY QAL quilt.... orderly chaos

I almost think I could make this out of my scraps and extra blocks ALL OVER MY QUILT ROOM....  just to look at the quilt and create my variation....

Happy New Year My Friend

When a Sewing Room become silent - Oh My!

Does the dream - the excitement - the sense of accomplishment and contentment....   Does all of this just go away....???

A resounding NO.   Other decisions and mini-adventures have moved in and out of my life THIS YEAR.... much to my surprise.   I no long just sit at a desk/40 hour week with two computer monitors and almost unlimited internet/time access!

Ice Covered Trees in Oklahoma November 2015

The winter, ice and snow are my glory days... of each year.   I visited Florida and sunny CA..... Yes I'd love to live seaside.... But I would so miss my SNOW!!

My words of reflection.... Though you may break in certain places, you still bend and bloom and survive in the coming season of life.   So God has his way with you and me!

Peace.... within, without and all around!

A lovely Monday 4me
 Late summer.... coleus was cut back... and a slow new bloom.  I also placed it in the covered patio shade...which really brought back the deep pretty colors.

 Oh my.... The Lord sent a butterfly while I was snapping.... his little yellow wings.  I'm amazed and stunned at God's continuing BLOOMIN handiwork.... this flower stalk is still growing and outstanding!

 And even against the (unfinished-kinda ugleeee) . . back fence... I spotted a single - gorgeous yellow flower....    camera plzzzz
