DAY 3 with Say it with Flowers and Andover as our Sponsor

And if you are up with us this morning
it will be a SWEET DAY!

Join us for some gorgeous blooms!

We will be bringing flowers...

WE opened up the doors first to all those overseas
so they would beat the odds to show us their flower
project. I know I speak for CAROL too, we are soooo 
excited to see what flowers are in your gardens of your mind.!

And speaking of CAROL she will be cheering you on
as only she can do. She is getting to be our hostess
who has more experience with language barriers than any other cheerleader!
She is our in house expert now, after bowls with borders.
I think she can do anything....

JUST LET ME QUILT is her blog 
and we certainly give her that opportunity time and time
again. And although she is quite competitive with me...
I think we would  all agree, she inspires me to do better...wink!

So today we present our lovely gardeners..
Let's see what is growing in their world!
Be sure to cheer them all on for the beauty
that will fill your screen! 

May 29th


We have a HEXI blog hop coming, I do hope you all still have hexies in you...lol
This lady just captured such a beautiful runner....the colours are soft, and yet
bold at the same time... Her photo against the shed or bard door is very rustic
complimenting her very feminine piece...WELL DONE!
( and she made a diaper bag to match, check her out) 

Simplicity at its best....don't you just love the 3D effect...?
Simply put a very modern approach to space aged garden...
Ok, that is where my mind went..to the future....lol

Most Creative

Don't you just love this block...
and how it transforms into so many floral 
shapes...creative absolutely!
There are many other photos she added...truly
inspiring...Her fabric choice was perfect for this....

And would you believe this is a table topper?
At first I thought in another one of her photos it was a fabric basket-till
I came across this photo and realized it was a table cloth? Do we call it a table
cloth when quilted? Regardless, it is striking and was created for a bride.
This lady also made a smaller one .....the detail in stitching is amazing...
I know "that other lady" will love this..she loves anything purple lol

Ohhhh and

 FABRICS is our sponsor and they have included some amazing flower
bundles....YOU have to agree, their collections are always the brightest- they have the most variety and never seem to mirror anyone else. So thank you once again our friends at Andover for being our sponsor for Say it with Flowers...YOU certainly got the menu on that one...
