About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

The Bee Hive series

www.blossomheartquilts.com


Sign up to be a part of The Bee Hive in 2015 by joining The Bee Hive Quilting Bee.

My New Years promise to thy self is getting back to blogging and learn some traditional blocks and learn to read patterns. Most folks want to buy less fabric and commit to more personal quilting time. NOT Me, I missed all my Quilty friends last year for personal reasons, also  I need a new laptop and my camera broke.. 2014 Really sucked but hey, we cant all live in Heaven or Bliss ! I am going to keep at least one swap going all year, and 3 or 4 monthly year long Swaps, like THE BEE HIVE, I bet I will learns something here. I am also going to make a special tab on the blog to keep myself organized. I love IG, not so fond of Flicker anymore, every time I go to sign in, it says wrong password.. 

I need a new Laptop, any suggestions, I love the chrome, I love my Android phone and tablet. I want say the other one, but I hated it. 

Dont you love those cute little ICONS on IG??? I promise I have been sewing and crafting just not Sharing.. well sharing yes, one one thing is for me, but I havent been posting.. We had 2 new Grandbabies this year too.. 
 The scrap that I am using now
