Top o' the Morning


I hesitate to make stitching goals because that is an open invitation for me to NOT meet those goals! I have, however, made one hesitant goal for 2011- to stitch seasonal designs the month BEFORE the holiday or season. I stitched a couple of Valentine designs in January, and now I have almost finished a design for St. Patrick's Day. I have been stitching a freebie by Tanya's mommie, Lucy Lyons Willis. Wow! I should really get a special little treat for that! I would love to take a little solo trip to a nearby quilt shop to find some shamrock fabric. Maybe after a morning of stitching (and vaccuuming, laundry, and cookie-baking), I might venture out. I really want to finish this this morning - I hope you get in a lot of stitching today!

A nice start on this pretty design! I stitched this last year and really enjoyed it - I hope you do too.

Girl. You live with 2 of the best quilt shops around! I'm sure the quilt store with the pink paint in town has exactly what you need for shamrocks. She has a whole room full of greens! I heart that place like no other.

OOPS! forgot 3 of the best. One is Walmart while it lasts a couple more months.

Hi Michele,
This piece is looking great! You are so good putting your border in first, I am never patient enough to do that./
