"Whatever your hands find to do, verily do it with all your might" Ecclesiastes 9-10

but when I saw this, and this, tell me how could I resist ? :>)

So I contacted Stina, and asked to be part of the Club. Of course, I needed that like a hole in my head, but the summer holidays will soon be starting and I thought it would be fun to stitch those cute angels, for a change. Besides, being part of a small, friendly group, with a "comfortable deadline" (does that exist, really ?) won't do me wrong...

Wouldn't you feel like joining the fun ? ;>)

Some might think I fell in a "quilting slump" lately, or in a "lazy daisy" mood ---> wrong !
I worked hard, my friends. One slow stitch at a time, I admit, but I reached (most of) my goals, and - most important - I finished some "secret", special projects. And, no I still can't show them today, as the recipient would immediately understand. HeeHee.....

I've also handpieced some additional nine patch blocks, for a dear friendship quilt with Christine , as well as some other house blocks, and the stacks are nicely growing.

This, in between the end of school year exams & graduations AND our new kitchen installment preps. - read : dust, sorting out and packing as if we were moving, LOL (my "baby" is coming first week in July, and I just can't wait ! :>)

So no quilty pictures.... what else can I show you ? Flowers from my garden, maybe ?

petunias, spreading all over...

honeysuckle, smelling divine...

and sparkling red geraniums.

But a rose, is a rose, is a rose...

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you I signed in Linda's pincushion swap, as well as in Sharon's on Rhonda-Jean's blog.

See..... I'm not an angel ! ;>)

What about a quote, now ?

The reason angels can fly

is because they take themselves lightly.

G.K. Chesterton


  1. How can we resist challenges?

  2. Oooh -- a pin cushion swap? That sounds like fun!
    The flowers are glorious!

  3. Happy you joined the Angels Club too :o) This will be a lot of fun!!! Although... I'm no angel, either *tjiihii*

  4. Hello Sweet Nadine...off to the quilt show for a workshop. But wanted to stop by and leave a hello.

    The little variable star that I have been practicing on is very addicting. I will slip a wee block into your box....just like potato chips, you can't make just one.

    Have a wonderful day!

    ps: what's this about another group...silly old bear! I'm sure you couldn't resist.

    Off on the hunt for the special thread holder for my dear friend so far away.

  5. I need to get that book too, but I better not join the challenge right now because of daughter's wedding in August. Great to hear from you, and beautiful flowers!

  6. This is great. Welcome to the angel club :) The angels are soooooooooooo cute to stitch and I know you'll love them.

  7. Nadine I have buyed this book too.
    It is so nice.........
    Your flowers are fantastic who is the gardner?
    ciao ciao

  8. You have really gotten a lot done. I love your quote and must confess to taking myself way too seriously many times. Gonna do better so I can fly!!!!

  9. Enjoy stitching those angels Nadine. It looks a fun project. I shall enjoy watching your progress on it.


Thanks a bunch for your comments, they just make my day !
