BOM In Our Garden Blog Hop

This is such a cute pattern by Amy at  There will be two different blocks each month, One applique and one pieced. This is my rendition of this month's
Blocks.  I'm hoping to be able to continue all twelve months. I will post each new design,  they are
all going to be by a different quilter.

The wind would not cooperate with me today, so they look a little misshapen
blowing in the breeze.  Which one do you prefer?  I'm also considering putting the frog's tongue 
catching the fly.  What do you think?

I'm just nuts about Blog Hop

Hello and welcome
Marian has done a great job of creating and directing these Hops.  There are more in the works for this year, visit with her and keep up with what's coming up that you might want to be a part of.
Thank you Marian for making these fun hops possible.
Since I have a couple things I'm really nuts about , and  I can't seem to choose one over the other I'll share both.  I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet.

This vintage sweetie who was rescued at a yard sale, is the culprit that started my love of stitching cats.

Houses and cats are my nutty obsession.
This colorful cutie is made of vintage wool and 100% silk from men's vintage ties.

Meet Casper, She was a feral kitten a one point we only knew she was there because when the other cat was inside the catfood was still eaten and we started watching to see what was eating. Hence the name Casper.  Like her perch?  Maybe we should have named her patience. Actually the birds pay her no attention and she has never caught one. But after this picture we moved the feeder.

And this little Kitty reminded me of Casper.  She is also made of vintage wool, the applique is felted wool and all is hand stitched.


I also enjoy making little homes from my scraps.
I'm starting to make some  seasonal too. I just fit them in among the others
according to the particular holiday.

It seems I have stashed them somewhere at Christmas, and after two
days of searching I give up. I have about 6 more and will eventually find them.
On the good side I have a clean storage closet.

I just found two more, I would say right in my face but in with a stack of fabric.

I want to thank the  for a $25.00 gift certificate. And the for a different flower pattern daily.
