"Walk in the Garden."


Today I spent the day putting this wall hanging together. Dzintra sent me the pattern a little while ago. It has been on the top of my to do list. It is called "Walk in the Garden" by Runaway Quilts. The pattern was made to suit a "Friends" panel material. As I didn't have access to this material I used what I had on hand including a fat quarter of material that Dzintra sent with the pattern. On the pattern they had the stitchery squares in a different order.The house was first followed by the duck flower and lastly the saying. I changed them around.

After all the animals are always up first. They may go to bed before us but I have never checked on the chooks in the morning and found them asleep.

Look who is sitting on the chimney. We must have all been very good. Santa looks just so happy sitting there.

We get up each day. Thanking the good Lord that we can go about our daily business.

Then we go out and check out the flowers. Thank you so much Dzintra and JoJo for this. I will hang this in my sewing room and remember you for your kindness when I look at it. Another project finished. I often wonder why I spend so much time looking at the pattern when all that time could have been spent sewing it. Oh well, I suppose I could call it research!!!
Happy days.

I love that hanger, Bev. The duck is just too cute. And the cupid lips on the flower - inspired!
