I did this little wall hanging a few days ago on Tiara

Flags on a Stick!!!!!

Time for another fun blog hop....and my day!  I've never actually made a flag before, but had to give it a go.  Madame Samm and Thearica have been very hard at work organizing this hop for all of us;so, let's have some fun!!!!

My little project shows each one of our seasons and my here goes

We have the leaves for for Spring...Solstice for Summer, and tractor for Winter. I know the last 2 are hard to see...they are photos on fabric; not vibrant.
The Solstice is my baby!!!!  the tractor is hubby's baby,,,lol.  and we have quilts on the clothes line.
These are the things that keep me busy year round here at home. Actually, the tractor is used year round, but is wonderful for snow removal!!!!!  the Solstice gives us lots of fun rides during our short summers.

Here is a close up of the  two pictures...

Shepody's Quilter is my website.....this flag will hang as a banner in my shop where I show my quilts during the summer months.  Well, I hope you enjoyed this and will visit the rest of the blogs participating today.

My attempt at McTavishing!!!!

I have to keep at is so much fun!!!!!!  My friend Connie sent me Amy's link, and I am so happy she did!  this is just what I need right now.   So here is my first attempt at it

I know....not the best....but I had fun!    Here is today's start on one; which I left like this because I am looking for something for a small block.  
I do like quilting like this and will definitely keep at it.
I tend to have trouble with the little fillers between the swirls. I hurry too much...LOL

Think Ruffles


Another great blog hop folks...lots of ruffles going around our little corner of blogging world.
I am not a ruffle person, but had to get in on it, you know! My little projects actually were fun too!!!!

First up is the apron...a simple little ruffled apron which I will wear on do-nut day. That is the day I meet with ladies in the community to make do-nuts for our annual turkey supper.....over 700 of them!  The only time I wear an apron! as a rule.

There it is....
I made my ruffle the way our Madame Samm showed on her page....nice and easy.

Next is a ordinary cushion, mind you...LOL.  My husbands aunt made the front panel years ago...before she passed away.  If I am not wrong; it is a mix of cross stitch and tatting, but I am no expert here.  It has been in a drawer in my sewing room waiting for me to do something with it. What better time than our blog hop????? so, I made a little cushion with it....
Didn't she do a great job on that star!  and my ruffle around the outer edge.  and look

Last but not least, thank you to our Madame Samm and Amy for making this all possible. What would we do without them??????

Here is today's list:                          March 11th

Now; you stuck with me this long...I have a giveaway for my followers. Yes, you have to follow me for this one. So please leave a comment telling me how you follow me.                                
Pam at Mad About Patchwork is sponsoring this giveaway today.  I want to thank Pam for this; she is such a generous lady, and carries great fabrics.  Pam is giving a $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky follower of my blog.  I will randomly draw at the end of the hop.  Good luck everyone!!!!
