Postcard Cuties for Winter, A Gardener's Journal, A Kitten's Tale 3

So my daughter, Emily, and I have been working on Postcard Cuties for Winter together and finished our first blocks.  Emily is blanket stitching with black - it looks great and really stands out.  Her block is on the left and mine is on the right.  It is so great to be working on this project together.  Emily is already stitching her second block.

I also finished Block 3 of A Kitten's Tale.  It reminds me of my dog, Molly, and my cat, Rory. I ordered the pattern from Pastimes on Line - love Valerie.

AND yes, yippee, I have finished quilting A Gardener's Journal.  Emily is holding it up for me.  The binding is on, I just have to stitch it down.

My dog is laying under the top of the quilt in this picture

and here is a close up of the quilting - I quilted flowers in the border.

Off to sew down the binding.

Happy Stitching, Lori
