Final fillers for Block 4

Each block will have a rose, a heart, 
and a word reflecting courtship.

Mumblings of the day...

- THIS is a sweet little pillow cover - not sure if I like it because it reminds me of spring or if the prairie points are 'the thing'.  Today it's bitterly cold and windy here - a marked contrast to the few days of spring-like weather we had been enjoying.  

- Kathy Shaw has opened up registrations for her online crazy quilt class for beginners, but you'll have to act fast!  Go HERE for further info.  Oh, and did I mention that it's free?

- If you're like me and love the look of neatly folded fabrics on a shelf there's a great tutorial HERE about how to achieve that look (and just going to the post and drooling over her shelves is enough to give me heart palpitations!!).  

Today your quote is from an anonymous source..."These are NOT grey hairs!  They are my wisdom highlights.  I just happen to be extremely wise."


  1. I love how you are tying each of the blocks with flowers, hearts and words of romance. I did drool over the sewing room with such perfectly folded fabrics. Marvelous March Dear...

  2. Your rosebud is so beautiful I love the look of folded fabric on shelves. It would be an easy visual and actually an enhancement to the decor. house has LOTS of dust. Maybe because I have two dogs, but probably because the house is old. So, I must hide my fabric away in drawers, but they ARE folded so that I can open the drawer and easily see every fabric in it. Almost as good as shelves.

  3. Your stitching is beautiful, Mary Anne! Such a delight!
    Cute cushion!
    Love the quote!

  4. Very pretty additions to block four Mary Anne! Hope you are having a lovely weekend! Christine x

  5. Beautiful embellishments, Mary Ann.
    I always like prairie points, clever use on the pillow.
    Keep warm! It's been very windy here too.

  6. You keep coming up with beautiful stitching ideas! Thanks for the links too.

  7. Love the saying for the day - just showed my friend it. We giggled.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
