Such "Glorious Colors"!!



Second month into BOM for my Flower Garden~Tips on making better stems and better storage of stems~


 Best tip yet~buying a wheel of brights to compliment each beautiful fabric~I know I could use a neutral thread but this is more fun don't you think?


 I purchased this online....quick and easy~♠

A quilters LuCkY HuBbY~thread audition~NeigHbOrHooD WaTcHdOg~GrOcErIeS and PoSt OfFiCe rUn...♥

A VERY handsome quilt from a new customer for her beloved....rich fabrics~great design~♥

 Thread audition~ I am definately using two colors so I can highlight and lowlight this beautiful fabric...
 These two make the cut! Be sure to take your thread OFF the spool and lay it on your fabric to get your best measure..

 Looks great with the background as well~see the difference with the thread on the spools and the tiny thread color against the fabric?

 Millie waiting to see her friends walk down Robin Hill this morning~♥
