Cherries and Roses

I found a little time for a small applique project and you know I love cherries.

Turns out, they now match my new kitchen. Now I find myself looking back at all the cherry motif items I have found and sold in our little shop over the years, that would also look cute in my kitchen. Oh well.

I am happy to be picking up a quilt from the quilter today, so I will show you as soon as I have the binding on it. I am in the cutting out process for a new quilt (pattern pictured above).

I've had a large piece of the big rose fabric sitting on my shelf for quite a while. I love it but hadn't figured out what to do with it. I went looking through my pattern stash and found this one that highlights a large floral fabric. I will be using an assortment of coordinating fabrics to frame the blocks and to keep the quilt "happy". I like happy quilts! Now, I must add that we are in the process of getting our home ready to go on the market so we can downsize when Gary retires at the end of the year, so my posts may be fewer and farther between for a while, but I hope you will still check in from time to time. I really appreciate your comments and friendship. Love, Derrith

I LOVE cherries and I LOVE your little towels! My kitchen is yellow with white cabinets and red accents. So I have cherry towels, plates, dishes, bowls, etc., etc. Your colors are just great! You are very talented! XO
