I have made some progress hand quilting the deer snowflake quilt.
when I finish this pair of deer I will have 5 more pair to go
and then I will have all the outside edges …you can see the edges drawn in this picture
here is the finished center
here is the snowflake the quilt is based on
lots more stitching to go!!
It rained pretty hard yesterday and a lot of the garden got a bit flattened but the sun is out and there is still a lot of color so I took some pictures.

I carefully avoided taking pictures that show the weeds! ….I have to get out there and do some work!!
I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel on the Trapunto work on my whole cloth quilt. I will be working on it exclusively until I finish.
Once it get it done I will go back to the Red thread big stitch whole cloth
And then on to a Christmas quilt.
I have it all planned and will be using a vintage table-cloth
I will add borders to it and then hand quilt with gold thread.
I did get out to the garden yesterday and took a few pictures. Click pictures to enlarge.
The Toad lily is starting to bloom (it is pretty late this year)
The Beauty Berry is loaded with beautiful purple berries
Ferns, Zinnias and Celocia and fuchsia still looking good
I cut a bunch of hydrangea to dry for use in Christmas designs later in the year
Now back to work on trapunto
