I have returned!

First, let me thank you all who sent good wishes for my Dad in his surgery. He is doing well, healing nicely and running my mother ragged! But that is nothing new :-) and she is doing well too.

I didn't get to do as much quilting as I had hoped but I do have one finish to report! Yes, the Little Bow Ties is completely done, quilted, bound, and labeled. Some of the chalk marks are still showing but they will go away. Here it is pictured on the old chair at the park - picture taken this past Saturday.

I'm about 2/3 done quilting Frosty & Fries and hope to finish that one this weekend. I also made a decision about borders on the 1930s Basketweave little quilt - yep, I added the borders and I'm glad I did. It seems to add that finishing touch. It will be the next piece in the little quilting hoop.

And finally, I thought I would share some more pictures from my quilting at the park this past weekend. Sunday I sat in the garden behind the cook house quilting - here is my little set up followed by some pictures of plants in the garden itself. It is such a lovely, peaceful place and I'm finally getting the hang of the macro on my little digital camera!

I can't show you what I was working on at the park this weekend yet. It's for a challenge that is due at the end of the month and I want to finish it completely before I show it off! So stay tuned next week!

great little quilts Debbie.
Love the bow ties, nice quilting.
Oh the picture of the quilts on the chair is just beautiful. Would have loved to see those quilts opened up.
Thanks for sharing your quilts with us.
Glad your Dad is doing better, hey if he is running your Mom ragged you know he is feeling better!!!!

You really are getting the hang of your camera, lovely photographs, especially of the flowers. I do like your little bow tie quilt, it's a very effective pattern. Glad to hear that your Dad is on the mend.

All your quilts are absolutely gorgeous, they really are. I was really excited to see your hexagon quilts as I am itching to make one...maybe in the summer once the next lot of pigeons have flown the nest!

Hello Debbie,

Your finished quilt looks great and I LOVE the other one too.
I can see you sitting near that lovely house, must give you a holiday feeling!

Greetings, Carolien (who wants to make a ssecond little quilt but has to finish a sampler first)
