First of all, I would like to thank Jennifer for spending time giving me a list of LNS in Paris~ I’ve already added them into my schedule, hopefully I will be able to visit them all!!! I’ll definitely keep you all posted~ One more week till our trip, I’m so excited!!!!

Next up, an update on my WIP~ I love the red!!!! But working over one on a 36ct fabric was no fun!!!! Thankfully there’s not a whole lot of it!!!


Siobhan asked for an updated photo of my tumbler quilt, well, here it is!!! not much different from previous photos, but I swear, there has been a lot of work done to it!!! I’m down to the purple border. I didn’t plan on using such a complicated pattern on the border as well, wanted to save some time and do a simple one so I can finish it up. But after looking at it, it just didn’t feel right. Since I’ve already spent so much time on it, what’s another month, right?! I’ve also posted a photo of the back where the quilting pattern shows a better.


I got a chance to snitch this photo when the doves were switching hands. There were two eggs this time~~ They usually sit pretty tight in the nest so it was difficult to see the eggs. They really like the flower pot over my poop proofed pot by the side. I wonder why that is? Maybe the leaves gave them more privacy? I hope my poor plant will survive….


Thanks for visiting~~


  1. Wonderful stitching! I just love the quilt--the quilting looks fantastic! Great pics of the doves. I think we have some sort of bird (too high to see what type it is) nesting in an air vent coming out of the side of the house. The air vent is the Irish answer to air conditioning. It's neat--but the squaks sound as if the bird is in the room with us. We determined it wasn't only after me and two and the kids (and a scaredy cat dog!) went bolting out of the room after hearing a squak. LOL

    If you don't post before your trip, have an amazing time!
