New quilt for Annie and her Raggedy Anne friends!

I made a Country Threads design, "Spring Pavers" a month ago and decided to make it again using my patriot prints...I will be ready to display it on the 4th of July.
 Suzanne, a friend, made a sewing kit for Sudie. Wonder what fun project (Sudie) has in mind?

Suzanne is very detailed in her work as you can see. The sewing  kit measures
3" x  2 1/2"  
 We have been tending our flower and vegetable gardens. Our flower baskets are so colorful.

Chester, Chester, how does your garden grow?
He weeds it and scares the rabbits away!
If you look close you will see a Heirloom (San Marzano) Roma or two.
This is  our side  flower garden-- almost in full bloom.

Clematis

Sweet little "Sweet Pea" plant. Barb, a friend, gave me a start of this precious plant 4 years ago and this year it is blooming in all it's glory! Sharing plants with friends makes your garden so special...it becomes your friendship garden.
Hope you are enjoying a delightful week!
Hugs, Carolyn

  3. Wow! Your garden should by on a garden tour, if it hasn't been already. The little embroidery kit is so tiny and so cute. What a talented friend you have.

  9. I made a doll a long time ago that had a little basket of sewing supplies. I made little bolts of fabric to put in with fabric wrapped cardboard. She had a wool coat and I made her shoes from a black leather thrift store quilt. I wish I hadn't donated her to a money making venture but she went to a good home.
