BLESS THEM STITCHERS winds down & now A YEAR in the COUNTRY


Here we all are .... hoping we all get the right fabric & patterns & in today's world buttons too. !!!; 
 In our world's today we have created such buzyness.... what are we doing to ourselves I wonder..?
Sitting under a tree just gazing out at perhaps a garden or some water .....with the cat or dog or other people....quietly conversing  ..now  see what is under here.....

*************************************************************************


 A YEAR IN THE COUNTRY
This is the book that followed 
Bless Them Stitchers....
Garden themes as I was in the midst of moving 
then resettling in a tougher environment
I needed places to escape to....
my drawings LOL
*
This book also had words above the instructions.
for this one..... 
which I might just suggest would make a wonderful  quilt... 
each of these designs has a little word that I felt at the time... 
so a picture in one block & the words in another 
so it will go on until you have pieced it together how you will...


If you might need little motifs... look into this design 
see 3 sun flowers on the left.... 
or 2 other common flowers ( common as I still draw a lot today LOL ) on the right....
The cat ...well, maybe this with the common flowers & spade goes much better.... even the 3 little spindly dandelions ..
It is a nice gift for you ..so I can take you on part of my journey...

Ok the words !!!

"SOMETIMES THERE ARE HIGH GARDEN WALLS...
WHERE THE SUN FORGETS TO SHINE...
WITH KIND HEARTS, SPECIAL LOVE AND A ...
...LITTLE SUNSHINE SMILE..IT...
ALLOWS A GENTLE SOUL TO GATHER STRENGTH, FLOURISH AND FLOWER. "

The new one is a fun design. I love the ones from this set and I plan on making a quilt, but I also think they would make nice mini pieces to give as gifts.
