Lots to share!

I have never shown you a completed crochet quilt square. So here it is. Ta da!!!! I am crocheting enough of the 2 1/2 inch squares for the larger block and then putting one together. There is just no way I am making all the blocks needed for the project and then put them together! No way that would be a gazillion squares! LOL!
Here is the progress on my Bountiful Blessings cross stitch. Lots more yummy veggies! i am going to put it sown and get blue on my Ruth project.
Here is a Lavender and Lace angel called Blue Moon Angel I want to do. I will do her on a faded blue denim aida. I used to collect L&L angels but they have gotten way to expensive for me. I did get lucky when Hobby Lobby was getting rid of their cross stitch charts. I was able to get a number of charts for eighty cents and one for two dollars.
This little pretty came in the mail a couple days ago from Sioux Sue. Isn't it so very cute? She also sent me another wonderful magazine on Texas. Thanks hon! Huggles!
Just look at all the babies on my Hens and chicks! Me thinks they like their tub and where they are setting.
Here are my baby flowers. I threw in some cosmos and an unusual type of marigold. Not sure which of these the seedlings are or if both came up. Just got to wait and see!
I do hope this doesn't upset anyone. I just wanted to share the lovely stone my cousin Pastor Brent and his wife Jennifer had done for Dustin. He was killed in a car accident in December of 2006.
The little thing in the upper right is something Dustin had drawn. We sure miss that boy so much. It is not unusual to be driving in town and see a young person with a thing in their back glass in loving memory of Dustin. He was a wonderful young man and cared so much for others and was a good Christian boy.
So until we meet next time, God bless. Please know you are all in my heart.

Glad you are back! Love your cross stitching! The Lavender and Lace angels are spectacular so I can hardly wait for you to start on yours. Those hen and chickens bring back memories of childhood when my Grandma Josephine would have those and so many other wonderfully beautiful flowers planted all around her house:~D God bless you and have a wonderful day:~)

Always enjoy seeing your lovely work! The grave marker is beautiful and how wonderful to put his drawing on it. I'm just now getting back on board to reading blogs and trying to catch up.

The grave stone is beautiful. How old was he? He must have been a very talented young man.

I wish you lived near me so that you could teach me how to crochet and cross stitch! You do such beautiful work. That angel is just gorgeous, can't wait to see when you've made her!!

I've never seen hen and chick plants around here, I guess they need a longer growing season than we have here. I've never even seen them in the nurseries around here!

What a beautiful grave marker for Dustin. I love the fact that they used one of his drawing to put on it...I've no doubt he is dearly missed.

Love ya! xoxo

glad to see you back -- and better! Love seeing your creations (art!) I wish I had someone here to teach me to knit! I am so much a sight learner, books would not help. It is finally getting warm here in my part of the Midwest.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you so much for the e-card that you sent me for my birthday. It was so kind of you to remember me.

All of your stitching is looking wonderful and the crocheting too. I hope that you and Jack have a pleasant and peaceful Memorial Day.

You've been busy! I'm with you on putting the squares together as you go along. And your Bountiful Blessings is looking just gorgeous and yummy. What a deal you got at Hobby Lobby--that's a store we don't have here.

Sharon said...

Your wip's look wonderful-I really like the bountiful blessings. I think Dustin's headstone is beautful. He sounds really special. Thanks for the sweet comments you left on my last post-I appreciate them! Have a good Memorial Day holiday.

Your projects look great. That's a lovely headstone. Very unique too.

Barbara said...

I have not seen crochet done in patchwork like that before. Very effective.
The headstone looks a real unusual one.
Glad you are now up and running with your internet connection. I sure know what those withdrawal symptoms are like!!!!!!!!!!!!!
