DAY 5 of Say it with Flowers and Andover as our Sponsor

Don't feel BLUE...we still have a few more days...
This china mug is from Ashdene- an Australia manufacturer.
You can find them in specialty shops and on ebay..
This one is called Hydrangea.

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 31st
How Art You? ( she is there now...read her story) 


Wait till you see this lady's quilt. Her backing is indeed floral
and the design she quilted screams summer gardens...
She is donating this and I am sure whoever cuddles under it will
be forever touched by summer!

This lady always knows how to created something we will be talking about...
LOOK at her quilting...It is always inspiring, and has all thinking 
Her pretty floral prints just provides such an aweeeee experience...


This wee tot is called simply FLOWER...how appropriate and most
deserving of a most CREATIVE SPOT.
downright adorable, don't you think?

And this lady made this quilt, actually designed it all for this hop...
will you just look at the details...I took a closer look at it...and blew it up 
for you all to see.....creative, you bet...beautiful, you bet...
downright inspiring, you bet! 

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...

  21. Well, I promised my husband his favorite meal tonight, turkey breast (made in the crockpot) with all the trimmings. I should have been out in the kitchen a good hour and a half ago starting on the cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie but I HAD to go hopping first. VBG---no discipline at all when it comes to quilts or the prospect of looking at quilts and other crafty items. I had a feeling you might pick those two for most creative! Now off to the kitchen with this girl!
