And So My Garden Grows...

Finally, after what felt like a million French Knots, I completed the stitching on my vintage Vogart Dresser Scarf with the little black kitties:

As you can see in the bottom left-hand corner, my nose-y little Lucy just had to check it out!

Here's a closeup of one end:

Now, I'm going to coat it in "Spray & Wash" and run it through my washing machine. It's at least 50 years old and heaven only knows where it's been until it came into my possession. After that, mom will crochet a simple little border on it in pink variegated thread. Pink is my new favorite color!

With that project completed, my little Garden Quilt began to sprout:

Actually, this little corner of my garden grew pretty quickly! I'm trying to incorporate all the colors of the hankie flowers into each block. Stay tuned for progress photos.

I mentioned in my last post that I'm going to be doing a drawing for a mason jar filled with something nice! I'll post that announcement tomorrow so please stop by to enter the drawing.

I'd like to say thank you to everyone who leaves comments for me. Since I like to reply to everyone, but can't always find an email address, I'll reply here.

Tina, thank you for your comment. I don't envy you for what you deal with but I'm well aware of of challenge you face as I have someone in my life who also deals with that disorder.

Sheila, so glad to hear that you enjoyed the little Gingerbread Man design. I was very happy to send it to you.

Cheryl, thank you so much for all the kind things you say about me and my blog. I'm so happy to know that you enjoy it that much! And so glad you like the lamp that my dad made for me. It's one of my favorite things!

Sandy, no, I didn't make that doily. I don't have the patience for crocheting! My mom made that one. Occasionally, I buy unusual doilies at flea markets and antique shops but most of the ones I have were made by mom.

In other news, I've decided to expand my Etsy shop a bit. I won't go into too much detail at the moment, but for anyone who doesn't like to bake but wants to dig into my cookie jar, I'll be making that an option. More details on that coming soon.

Well, that's it for now! Have a great afternoon everyone!

Now Lucy has shown herself, do you suppose she might be convinced to pose some more? Your kitty embroidery is pretty, but I have to admit I'm fascinated with your garden project. It is going to be beautiful!

Oh my gosh, look at that flower garden!!! Beautiful!! I can handle crochet but all that delicate work. I am so impressed, as usual. I can not even picture what a work of art it will be. WOW!
And your Kitty scarf is adorable. Thanks for sharing your work with us. I do so appreciate it.

Cute dresser scarf, Pam, and how nice of your mom to add the finishing touch! That flower quilt is going to be wonderful; can't wait to watch it progress.
