Flower Palozza!  

  I is finished the wall hanging for my goddaughter that I had worked on over most of 2017.   I was very happy with the way it came out and had become very attached to it.  I knew she would be away over the holidays so I didn't mail it to her  until several days before Christmas.     In January I received a wonderful thank you note that made it all worthwhile!!!
Here are a few shots.  It will be in next issue of Pam Kellogg's Crazy Quilt quarterly magazine so I don't want to give it all away.

My local Library is opening a crafting corner and asked me to put some items for sale in it so I made a few flower pins.  

I am sad that blogging has fallen off and people are using Facebook etc.  I know I am guilty of not posting much either.  Will try to be better about it!

Some progress on my reclaimed quilt wall hanging Cock-a-doodle-doo!  I have incorporated the rooster buttons in each.   I have finished the other 4 but not yet uploaded the pictures.

Happy New Year 
Started reclaiming and  embellishing a damaged quilt I bought at Brimfield over this past summer.   The first step is just some basic outlining.  This is done two of the nine Hexies I will be using.   

Trying to enhance these little flowers ... tried beads, French knots, maybe ribbon.

New Years day we always go to an Antique Show in Glastonbury CT.  The show was mostly jewelry and Primitives with only a few textile dealers.  I was looking for buttons that would have a thirties vibe.  Here's what I found!   Don't know why but I couldn't resist a small box of rooster buttons.  Roosters in red, pink, yellow, green, blue, brown, and black in all different sizes.    The face button  ,the spastic tennis player, and the red and clear glass buttons I thought fit the bill.

Just might call the wall hanging Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Instead of uploading my pictures in blogger from my iPad to computer I tried emailing the pics to my computer and I think they are a little better.
