Hello folks....I haven't been around much lately, other than blog hops, but hoping to change that.
I tend to get busy this time of the year with outdoor lawns, flower gardens and veggie garden.  But, I am sewing and quilting up a storm...just not posting it all.  

I have finished hand quilting 2 embroidered quilts for a friend, who is gifting them.
This is a peek at one, the other was blue instead of black.  The pic doesn't do them justice at all...the unicorn blocks are really quite pretty.
Right now I am hand quilting this one for a friend..nearing the end of it.
I don't want to show more because she needs to see it first. I have around 8 quilt tops of my own to quilt, but can't seem to get one on Lily right now..I keep going back to customer quilts because of deadlines, but soon!
I am working on this Irish Mist of my own..piecing it right's a peek
This is the Center..I have two small borders added, but will add more. The pattern is smaller than I want.  I am loving this quilt so much!
I have started piecing a Giant Dahlia for a customer...identical to this one that she bought a few weeks ago.
And, I have another order for this same lady...will show it when finished too. I had two quilts dropped off today to be hand quilted, and another arriving on Thursday.  So, I am very busy, and loving it!!!!
Here is my veggie garden that will be ready to harvest In Two to three weeks.
This is part of is 35'x125'...I could be crazy!  Lol. But, I enjoy being outside...mowed lawns today for 31/2 hours and it was a warm day. But, done for another week...yay!
This weekend. I think we may just take off in the Solstice...enough work!  Hmmmmmm

Christmas in July

My day, my day...thrilled to death to be here again, with all of these fantastic fellow bloggers.  Carol has been out doing herself organizing these hops for all of us.  Let's give a big thank you, Carol!!
I have a couple of pieces to show you this time around...yes, getting carried away with

First up, is this wall may have seen it at this stage a few months back. 
Three paper pieced trees from Tall Tree what do I do with these?  Well, this it what I decided on...a wall hanging.
I pieced it together with narrow, 1-2" white background strips, added borders, and machine quilted with wavy, snow mound type lines. And I liked it after all
Another view of it...
This shows the different whites in the background. Some are plain whites, and some are tone on tone.
So, that's the first on to the others.
This is the Woodland Forest tree skirt by Karen Neary from Sew Karen-ly Created...
It is so much fun to make, too...I even made a second!
Another view... explanation for two skirts is, print your templates from an iPad...get the smaller one.  Print templates from a laptop and get the larger tree skirt. You have a large have a smaller tree...not a problem!!!  

Well, I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this blog hop, and will be in the next one also.  Please take the time to visit everyone else on the list below and leave a wonderful comment.
Thank you for being here for us.
