Hello Everyone and Welcome. I want to Thank You for celebrating with me for my 1st year Blog Anniversary. The winner is announced at the end of my post. Some photos to share with you.
Today would have been my moms birthday. Happy Birthday to you mom. One of her favorite flowers was Iris's. And I have taken some photos of my moms Blue Bearded Iris plant. I am thankful the Iris bloomed again this year.
The full blooms.
Doesn't this large bud look like satin fabric rolled up - lol.
I just love the richness of these blue tones.
This is an original design. I thought I would share a bit of how it came to be for some of you who are new and have not seen this before. Since its my moms birthday today - I think its a good time.
There have been lots of emails between me and Lee. I have been taking my time and totally enjoying the journey with Lee whose the creator of this Beauty.
I received my chart in the mail for "Bothy Threads Cut Thru Monday SAL - on Debbie's blog HERE"
I had this fabric in my stash but it was a much lighter color of blue:) Yep I hand dyed it. Thought I would make it a bit brighter - lol. It came out a bit darker than I thought it would. I am going to test a small area with Rit Dye Color Remover. Hmmmm no idea how it will turn out. I'll let you know. If the test area doesn't look how I want it to, I'm leaving it and using this fabric anyways. Its 16ct aida.
I plan to stitch this Monday, maybe sooner. Okay the big announcement........

Thank you again to everyone for visiting me and helping me celebrate my first year blog anniversary. Our weather has been wonderful - mid 70's and one day was 83 degrees. Lots of Sunshine here. I have joined Feedly for my choice of reader since google is going away. Still becoming familiar with it. So even though some of you are now on Bloglovin - I am not there but I DO follow all of you still:) Does this make since? Hope you are getting to enjoy Spring.
With love and Appreciation - Annette
