Country Bloomers

Before I became addicted to quilts I used to do quite a bit of cross-stitch. I sometimes made them into wallhangings (cheaper than framing!) and this morning I found this one which just needs a binding. It is a Jeremiah Junction design called Country Bloomers - I will try to finish this today.

While searching for WISPs I also found this little wallhanging from long ago. It was from a book called Know Your ABC's. The buttons are made of wood and I remember painting and distressing them for a country look.

Oliver just had to sit down as I was snapping!

The applique is just ironed on - no button hole stitch or anything!

I only have three more blocks to quilt on the Spotlight quilt. Considering how to quilt the border - it will be simple! - then just the binding to go. Worked on the Christmas Cups stitchery last night and it is close to being finished also. Happy stitching.
