In my "spare" time this summer I have been catching up on "to do" stuff around my house. I finally got my entire wrap around porch painted, banisters, and floor and I'm so happy. It looks so fresh and clean!! We have had an interesting summer here in Texas because of all the rain. My grass is green and my flowers are still blooming and it has not hit 100 yet.
My cottage garden is still pretty (not usual for end of July) and a little "wild", just how I like it....

Well, I have let time get away from me. Summer is always busy with the kids at home. I wanted to share some of my new creations which involve the lovely old Victorian design of Crazy quilting with a cottage spin. Most crazy quilting was darker rich fabrics. I am using all those pink roses we love, vintage laces, vintage fabrics, old embroidery, and anything else I am inspired by. Here are some pillows I have recently created, one of which is available in my boutique, and a sweet little pincushion. I do so enjoy designing these one of a kind pieces.
