FINISHED! August two buck block, Jan's garden and Morgan's pillow

so in my absence from the blogging world, i have been crafting!

this is august's two buck block - i like the design very much, but am not at all fussed with the pink material....never mind!

this is Jan (my mother in law)'s birthday present!  my dad framed the embroidery for me in a frame i found at our local shops on sale!  lovely and a bargain - winner!

and this is a pillow i made for the little human's friend morgan.  not for any reason, other than the fact that she is a little champ, and a good friend to the little human.  she has a lovely gentle spirit and is a great example of sharing, caring and love.

pugs and kisses

Awwwww fantastic work! You have been so busy!
1. Love the block and love the pink but that's me - I'm the pink girl!
2. The embroidery is stunning! I've always wanted to be able to do all those dimensional flowers!
3. Just because gifts are the best! Adorable pillow and lucky Morgan! LOVE the alphabet fabric!

Nice blocks and I love your stitchery you have made for your MIL.

:( I am very sad as I could not read the end of your blog as the comments run through your post.

thanks alex - the embroidered flowers are easier than they look. the pattern is from Inspirations magazine and they have beautiful patterns and great instructions to follow.

thanks maria - i have sent you an email about internet browsers that i think makes the blogs play up. but i am so sorry you couldn't read it all! thanks for the encouragement though!
