DAY 4 of Say it with Flowers and Andover as our Sponsor

Is there anything sweeter than the scent of fresh blooms in a garden...?
Join us as we stroll through many international gardens..

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 30th

Our top 2 for today

Some of our ladies will go to any HEIGHT to 
get our attention. And this lady did just this..
Her floral wallhanging is really beautiful, along with her wee model,
and beautiful backdrop...Bravo to both of you!

W.C. Fields secretly loved children, but one of his famous quotes...
" never work with children or animals
they always steal the show"...Today's top 2 were evident of that..
How can we overlook this wee tot in her beautiful floral dress
that was created by this lady in our hop. 
Bringing out more smiles that you can imagine...she is a winner in our eyes!

MOST CREATIVE  top 2 today are...


Does this not just scream "LOOK AT ME"?
Bright yellows transports you to a field of sunflowers...
This lady captured a lovely pillow for all us to admire  in her creative
 fabric choices...oh yes! 

an how could we overlook, this lovely stitching of a girl 
in a garden of flowers and butterflies...
This lady stitched this up beautifully..!

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...

  11. I haven't been blogging, sewing, or reading any blogs since February or maybe it's longer. Finally, on vacation this week, and can't believe what I've been missing. I hope to make time each day to at least stay in touch with Sew we Quilt and you, Samm. I used to get emails sent to me, but that is no longer happening and that made it so easy for me. I'm going to try to subscribe again by email to see if I can get re-connected.

    1. Lovely flowers to pick today again, a basket full!! And I love the top 3 or four. Wonderful weather in Sweden too and no stitching today for me. But it is so fun to look at all the goodies and to cheer to them all.
      Now I am going to a graduation party for my niece and of course she will be gifted with something made by me.

  12. Wonderful flowers surround us again today, but I love the floral mugs that greet us each morning too.

  13. I love the winners today What beautiful children! Oh wait....I mean projects! LOL! The children are the flowers of our life! I really like the crosstitiched work.
