Years ago I made this little fall project. I think all I did was crazy quilt a round piece large enough to fit over the edges of the jar, embellish and voila!
I love to do bullion embroidery so it is a given that it will be on just about every project I make...
It was so much fun to crazy quilt with cottons and denim, of all things denim!
Talk to you later,

Well it appears that I have abandoned my blog for over 5 months, how is that possible? Not that I am making excuses, but I thought I would show what I have been doing. It has been a wonderful year and I have been so grateful for all that I have been allowed to do. In March our quilting group finished the quilt pictured above, and donated it to the MCC Sale in Hutchinson, Kansas. It sold for around $1500 and we were very pleased with that.
In April, my dear friends Vonda and Dixie helped me tie my Valentine Crazy Quilt together so I could get it bound and finished.
In March, Allie Aller and I finished our manuscript for our book that is coming out next Spring. That felt really good!
In May, I finished my Secret Language of Flowers fabric book that I had been working on for several years. I am really pleased with how it turned out!
In September, our quilting group finished the quilt top for the next MCC sale and started quilting on it.
I'll tease you a bit by telling you I have three other finishes, but you'll have to wait awhile to see them. ;-)
Talk to you soon and I will try to blog more often! I tend to post more on Facebook if you want to join me over there that would be great!
