Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Fall Stititchin'



This was a birthday gift for my friend Connie.  The vine is hand applique, the pumpkin strings are hand embroidery, the leaves and pumpkins are machine applique, and the quilting is free motion.  I didn't have a pattern but I did use templates I found in a book for the pumpkins.  When I finished it I liked it so much I didn't want to give it away.  :)  And if I didn't love my friend so much I might not have!


Looking for Wicked?  Here's today's schedule:
