a few more...

Still unsuccesful in uploading more than a few pics at a time.  I get to the fifth pic and it takes all day, literally for it to upload and even then it will not save.  I must be doing something wrong and I havent had/taken the time to figure it all out.  So here are a few more of my blocks...maybe I will get them all on by tomorrow?  These photoes dont show the stitching too well but I have machine blanket stitched all my appliqued pieces.
I love gardening!


stitching around each and every pedal took me a while but I love how it looks.  I just wish you could see my flowers better.

We had a lot of rain while I was in Australia...but that's okay because after rain there is always a rainbow!
