Happy Mother's Day 2019!

Hope for all the mom's of people and pets you are having a celebratory Sunday today 💞
It has been a busy week here at Daisy Meadows...
 Our birdhouse we had used in Florida that my dad had built long ago got a rebuild to stregthen it... Florida has left it loose all over and it got a fresh bottom piece too...  Now it is shining proudly in our side yard ready to greet 6 new bird families in the future :D

Also last Sunday we actually caught some of the crew heading back south on the train tracks from doing their yearly train track maintenance ....
That was quite exciting!!!

Monday kicked off teacher's week and nurses week... I celebrated both and posted this on my wall in honor of my RN career in the past...
But more nurses do teaching so it was a celebration to both areas of my life :D

I did finish this block Sunday amidst all the hubbub of activity we had! lol

 Then Monday I rolled the frame to start the week off with Elliana's name
 I marked out what I thougth I may do but not having losts of experience with appliqued quilting...
I was feeling my way once the crosshatch was marked!!!

Well look how good it is looking this weekend now :)
Progress is slow as I have a sore thumb and my thimble rubs it so I am only able to quilt a bit at a time ... then a break is required.

Linking this fun slow progress to Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's HERE!
and Wendy's Peacock Party HERE!

If only my fingers didn't get sore! lol

I finished the bag for my customer this week :D  She is very pleased with the end result my daughter said and I had fun making it for her so it was a win/win!

Here is a collage showing the inside and the back as well of this Oriole Bag by SewSweetness Patterns!!!
 I included a key fob and 3 different pockets per her request.  The focus fabric elephants were her choice too <3  I am sharing this finish over at The Crafty Quilter with Julie HERE <<< this has all the makings of a quilt but it is a usable bag lol!

Besides the roses I opened my post with (picked for me by my honey while it was raining!!!)

We recently realized we have some pink azalea bushes here by the front of our yard :D  Makes me happy to have a bit of pink!
 And we cleaned some of the algae from the pond and I love the reflection pics I take... so I thought I would share this one with you all...
Have a blessed Sunday friends.... thanks for visiting!  I am back to slow stitching after this is posted ... how about you??!!
