… getting there!


Here's one more little peek before I disappear into the world of pattern finishing & writing. . .(!)

A few days ago. . . I was 'trying' to fall asleep - but couldn't because I was trying to figure out what I was going to use for the flowers for my flower box. . . Then I remembered one of the prints in the 'Simple Abundance' fabric line that I'm using, & I actually got out of bed & went back into the studio. (. . . I mean, I might as well have. . . I wouldn't have gotten asleep anyway until I checked out my idea. . .) There I pulled out the flower print. . . & ta-da!. . . the flowers on it were perfect for my flower box! So there & then, I got out the scissors & cut around the flowers. . . & once done, I was able to go back to bed & I slept like a baby the rest of the night! (Thanks Bonnie & Camille!)

There's still a bit of embroidery to finish them off. . . but here's the peek of the window & flower box blocks. . . ready for their spot in the new design. . .



Hope you have a great week!

xo, Bren

Bren - I haven't seen your blog in quite awhile - it is really beautiful and I was even able to open it quickly. No computer problems...what a relief! I think your flowers are absolutely gorgeous and it definitely was worth losing some sleep over. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. xoxo Mary Jane
