Another Day of Sunshine and Sewing

Good Morning! as the postcard says.  This card is out of my grandmother's postcard album that I have. Most of the cards are at least 100 years old and I just love looking through them so you will be seeing a few of them from time to time. I'm so glad the sun is shining again today, it's makes such a difference in my mood and just makes Winter seem better.  I am participating in Myra's PhD Challenge as some of you know. One of my challenges is my Dear Jane quilt. I'm patting myself on the back already and my arm is getting sore! But when I started sewing on this again, only the middle part was together. The triangles, pieced and plain, were all just in pieces. I have all the borders sewn together and ready to put on the middle. I also had to add the little 1/4" piece all the way around the middle and that is done too. In the pictures below, the borders are just laying around  but hopefully, the next time you see it, it will be a whole quilt top.

 I'm just throwing a couple of pictures from my flowers file because I am reminiscing about last summer when they were so pretty. They are Caladiums and they are called "Gingerland"..I just love the red splotches on them and I just love Caladiums.  Do you think they are as attractive as I do?   I would love if you would comment on my blog.

I hope you will have a "Stitches" kind of day.. until next time.


  1. Love the plant and the quilt is beautiful.

  2. Your Dear Jane is looking really good! Can't wait to see it finished!
    I like caladiums and like the varieties of coleus, too.

  3. I have old postcards and love them also! Yes, I love caladiums.........yours are beautiful! The quilt is just lovely! blessings,Kathleen

  4. Congrats adding your borders to your beautiful quilt. Nice to see green plants again even if they are in a photo. Love the postcard saying, it would make a lovely embroidery piece.
