Did you see my picture of the new epp I started? Its the grandmas flower garden but its a star. MS designs helped me figure it out. I saw a video of it on the internet and ask her to help me figure the pattern out. You just strip two pieces together and sew. then place the diamond center on the seem and it looks like two triangles but its actually a diamond but two different fabrics, Its a cool trick.

BJ your flowers are beautiful. I also have violas in my flower gardens. One day I will take pictures of all my flower beds and put on here. I just finished doing yard work this morning, My neighbors probably did not appreciate me mewing at 8am but I had to get it done before we got rain again.

You certainly didn't, I was just chuckling at myself....had hoped I'd found an "old friend". I know I've found a lot of new ones on this site! :)
Wishing you a great day!

Just read up on your bio, my sister has fibro... very challenging.. She is on Quilt with Us too, She'll be surprised to hear that you found quilting theraputic. She makes fabric handbags and she struggles with limit time before she will feel the effects of the fibro, and have to quite for a while. You have a great attitude, God does his best work in US.. if we let him. Take care.. Marcia

BJ, thank you so much. Looks like fun and I can't wait to start it. My "Things I gotta do" list was almost empty and I needed something to add. LOL.

BJ thank you so much. You must be a professional designer! Directions are fantastic! I've been wanting to ask you this for sometime......are you originally from Michigan? Went to school with a BJ - of course that was over 50 years ago! Your photo looks similar to my memory....and what she may look like. I've got to get the courage to try a bag too! But for certain, I'm making me a take-along!! Very kind of you to share with all of us!

Hey BJ.....your flower pics are so beautiful.....I'm assuming you take the pictures with your camera? Fantastic colors. Hope you have a great mothers day. My hubby is taking me over to Bend Oregon and the shop in Sisters for mothers day this weekend. I already have my shopping list ready!!!!!!!!!!!!

BJ: Thanks for commenting on my blog. Yes, I'm an Austen fanatic! Usually I just listen to audiobooks, but I would chew my fingers with nothing to do. ( I can only spin for short times before my thumb gets tired.) Love your purses and your flowers! Happy quilting! --Peggy

When you make your purses do you use any interfacing or iron-on batting? I checked out the web-site and some of the purses were wrinkled and messy looking. I don't know if it's the fabric, the construction or what. I'm thinking of making the buttercup bag for one of my daughter-in-laws for Christmas. I think she would like it.
What do you do with the bags you make? I like to carry different bags but there's only so many that will fit in my closet!

Delete Comment BJ,
Hello! Thanks for the note back to me. Yes, BJ things are moving along so well. I do though know you are so correct about we have been blessed. I feel it, and I have become even closer to sharing my time with God. Before I was close, yet you know things get out of hand at times, and ya just forget to continue to talk or ask for help from our lord. I forget to always think of Gods help, and ya try to do it all on your own. Well, we all know that when that happens we get unbalanced, and that good old grey cloud hangs over. That is when we are over whelmed. I wonder why we drift, when the answer is right out there. BJ, I do take several different times a day to thank God for all he did for us. All that he has done for me all of my life.
Tonight, I am happy… very happy. I see Jeff doing so well. This was a dream of mine for most of his life, to have a normal life. God has given my son that chance. He tried telling me all the things he has planned to do this summer, and I guess he was waiting to hear me say, Oh Jeff do you think you should do that. Expect, he heard me say, Jeff go for whatever you want to do. Live every second of your life doing all you want to do. Live your life to the fullest! You deserve to do this. Jeff’s look on his face was very shocked. As I protected him in the past from getting sick… I know now... he must just go for it. He smiled!
By the way, BJ, I love your new tote. I like your web page. Thanks again, for your nice note to me. Hugs Morgan

Go for it, BJ! Make sure to add a copyright symbol and this year's date. This is just so neat!

Wow, BJ. You really did it up so well. It would be so nice to see you get some monetary benefit from designing this quilt pattern. It's great.
I will send you a photo once I have a go at the project. It may a while because there are a number of other things I have to get accomplished (including nasty non-quilting things). :-)
