It's Thursday and time to fill the internet with positive energy! I Like Thursdays is hosted by LeeAnna; be sure to visit her for more happy posts!
I like Dahlias!
I don't have many but I bought a few at an end of the year sale at the nursery. They are cheerful and happy and I'll get them again!
We have a cold running through the family right now and I've caught it. I haven't done much gardening but I'm enjoying the zinnias that are blooming these days.
Last week our guild had a program which featured the quilts of different members. I was particularly inspired by Karen's baby quilts. The older I get, the more I seem to gravitate towards visual simplicity; it's why I loved her baby quilts--especially this first one!
I'm going to make some baby quilts using the top photo idea. We have a new crop of babies coming in the family. I actually prefer to make quilts for kids when they are toddlers because I can make them bigger and more fun. These days, parents don't seem to use baby quilts but grandparents always want me to make their grandbabies quilts...so I do!
Speaking of simplicity, I finally finished binding this quilt; I've been sporatically sewing it all summer. It will go on my donation quilt pile:
Have a wonderful day!
