Dawning

 My wild quilt is completed-even washed and dried!  It is 44" x 60".
 I so enjoyed stitching it with a sunburst on every block and squiggles on the borders!  
 For a treat with my share of the tax money, I splurged and bought a new program for embroidery.  My old system no longer worked with the updated computers so I haven't been able to tweak, customize or combine designs.
Now, the embroidery is open for me again and I want to explore embroidery for quilting blocks!
 As a complement to the software, I bought some new embroidery thread!  Lots of shades so the embroidery will have the depth it need for success!
 I organized them in rainbow order, of course!
(I was able to buy both of these products on EBAY, at a price I could afford,
 from the luxury of home-priceless!)
 This isn't a pic of buds but rather the flower head is made up of these tubes and the hummingbirds love them!
 And for the first time, our prayer lily has produced a flower!
Dawn....chasing the boys from dawn to dusk;  from morning cuddles to bedtime snuggles.  It's an art.

  1. Love, love, love that quilt! I just splurged myself this morning and bought a new pricey sewing machine online. It took me two days to get the courage to hit that button but it's on its way!

  2. The sunburst quilting adds a lot of texture to the quilt - it looks great.

    Savor every one of those cuddles and snuggles! They grow up so quickly.

  4. That quilt -- all of its details and the whole -- is just beautiful! The threads are a lovely display, in addition to being useful...exciting for you to have machine embroidery back in your lineup again. The flowers are lovely, too!

    Hugs to the boys from Anya. ❤️
