Snowmen Stars



I am not sure if I am allowed to say the S word in July - snow! I have been organizing my UFO's in the past couple of weeks to figure out what needs to be done to finish them. The stars were finished and needed to be put into rows so I have that done now. Next I will be working on the border and the flying geese.  I think I will be changing up the border a bit. I am in the mood again that done is better than perfect which helps productivity.

And Pretty Maids All In a Row

 "Mary, Mary, quite contrary"

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maids all in a row.

These boxes remind me of this poem. They were made as thank you gifts for people who have supported my children. I used the pattern from Seaside Stitches and Freemotion by the River. The sides are meant to be sewn down but I liked how they resembled tulips to me and decided to keep them that way. As always I need to make one for myself now.
