Tea Time Gift and Quilt Show and Tell

I received my "Grow Your Blog" gift from Jocelyn at Just a Little Southern Hospitality. Look at all these fun goodies: A cute printed kitchen towel, the "Afternoon Tea" book, recipe cards, pancake mix and assorted teas. Lucky Me! Jocelyn has another fun blog I recommend: Happy Cottage Quilter. Thank you so much, Jocelyn!

I also wanted to share our Show and Tell at my February Quilt Group meeting. I have already shown you the fabulous Valentine Boxes we exchanged in my last post. This darling Halloween quilt was done by Pat K. The embroidery in the center is really cool.

Darlene produced these Nutcrackers on her Embroidery machine. They are quite amazing in person.

I know they take hours to do but the result is spectacular. We can't wait to see how she will use them.

Jayna made this fantastic quilt for a grandchild. We all loved it!

She decided to add  the center applique and drew the design herself. I love how the western shirt matches the rest of the quilt!

Anita made this really cute St. Patricks day themed piece.

Margy showed us her sweet flannel baby blanket.

Margy also made some of the cutest little bibs with her embroidery machine.
Our hostess, Darlene, had one of these little gifts for each of us. She made the butterflies and then inserted the seam ripper into it. I wanted to show you mine. I had already been using it at home and couldn't get the lid off to close it up, but I wanted you to get the idea. I thought it was very cute.  Well, I still haven't shown you our group of Valentine post cards. Perhaps next time. Thanks so much for visiting. -Derrith
