The Challenge








I just finished the challenge put out by Gail at Mind Wide Open. What a lovely image she put out. I made this into a needle & scissors case for my embroidery. It was great fun but I must admit nothing (and I mean nothing) else got done around here. :-)!








Forgive the emptiness of this blog as I just got started today and everything is so new. Giving the old gray cells a workout. I discovered this blog from a note from Pat Winter at Gatherings. She has a lovely blog and is so helpful with crazy quilt questions. I wish she lived closer I'd take a class from her. I really consider her my mentor. What a neat lady!

I guess I should return to the garden and pond. The weeds are prolific and the fish are hungry !


The sun is shining so I have no excuse. So off I go........
