Switch It Up with some Embroidery

I found a project I had started last year and never finished...or as they say in the quilting world...another UFO!  I had experimented with my embroidery machine and made the 6 pink blocks...4 with different flowers, 1 with a cardinal and 1 with a birdhouse.  I pulled 4 fat quarters from my stash and cut the squares to sew into a border that surrounds each of the center embroidered blocks.

Now I need to find another fabric to use as a wider border and finish it as a baby quilt.  This one is certainly not gender's very girly.  Oh well, once it's finished, I'll put it away for a future baby shower gift most likely.

I keep my fat quarters neatly stacked in a plastic container.  After pulling out what I needed for this project, I must have forgotten to put the lid back on top.  I turned around and found a little visitor that had made herself right at home in the middle of the spoiled rotten little baby girl, Talia, a 4 pound Mi-Ki.  She is my precious little shadow and I love her to pieces!  It's hard to believe my baby is already 8 years old and will be 9 in December.  My goodness, time sure does fly....WAY TOO FAST!

I finished up all the Easter Table Runners from the other day...ended up making 6 total...and they all have homes already. :) :)  One of the six had already been taken by one of my daughters before I could even get a picture of them all together. :(  Oh can at least see five! :)

I also put together a few more blocks for another project....

My living room floor needs to be mopped this morning...but afterwards I'm sure I'll have to "rest" by retreating to my sewing oasis.
