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

SIMPLESEW UMBRELLATRIMMINGS COMPETITON

umbrellatrimmingscompetition  to celebrate the skills of the quilting community they have a new Quilters Category and prize! I have until by Friday May 30 9:00am to get a project completed, If you are on instant \gram you have seen some of my ideas !

They had 2 bundles to choose from, I chose the warm bundle. I love all the hearts, I didnt know pink was warm but ok. I played one year and did a quilt that I love. Their fabric is a bit different, it sorta feels like linen, I guess thats why I love it. 
I am paring my trimmings with this gorgeous Arizona by April Showers, Viole this year, it just matched with my dresden plates. 

Pop over there and look at the contest, watch my post and I will be showing you more on the entries, they conveniently put it on a Pinterest page for us to view and VOTE.  I saw Lindsey Rhodes posted she is joing. I am making a pillow and I did alot of FMQ, it was fun for me.
