Blessings all.  Well I went with the red thread on the red, white and blue quilt.  Thanks to my good friend Sue K. a fellow longarm quilter she said how about red thread and Voila! perfect.  Thanks Sue.  I am stitching out the pattern and I am well pleased with the look of the red thread.  Whew!  another challenge taken care of.

And how about my flowers and perennials that are in bloom.  I love the purple perrenials.  I think they are called disappearing orchids.  And the yellow flower that makes me think of my Dad now has a whole family visiting.  I don't know why, but this year I am enjoying my flowers with a new appreciation of God's beauty.  I get excited to see how the flowers are changing day to day and the intricate beauty each one offers.  I'm beginning to see flowers are like people each has an inner beauty if we would just take the time to appreciate each one.

I have to do some grandma bragging for my four grandchildren aka "the dumplings" who are in school.  Carly, our four year old completed her first year of pre-school with flying colors.  Audrey Kate, Jacob and Abigale are experiencing their last day of school today (I'm not sure if mom, Kristen is ready) but I know Eli (aka Boom-Boom, age 2) is ready to have his brother and sisters home all of the time.  Audrey Kate, Jacob and Abigale excelled this year in school and were placed on the honor roll all year.  Abigale is one of the top five readers in all of the first grade classes at her school.  I'm sure everyone out there is proud of their children and grandchildren so my hat is off to all of the children, after all, they are our future.

Blessings to all.


  1. I like the red thread too, and the star pattern is great, whose pattern is that?
    Your flowers look great too.

  2. I don't know the pattern designer. It is on the Statler Sibs site under 2011 patterns which you can get free if you are a Statler owner. I would like to try this pattern on a wider border. This border was only 5 inches wide. I'll see if I can find out who the designer was for this pattern. Blessings, Marilyn
