A Finish and an UFO

This was a quick, easy, piece by My Big Toe Designs. I wanted something easy to do after spending 3 months on America piece. This piece made me think of my mom as even in adversity she rejoiced. Also when I graduated from High School I wanted a white dress with pink flowers to wear under my cap and gown. Unable to find one my mom found material and sewed the dress for me. I loved it and wore it often. The flowers in the border of this piece made me remember it because they were very similar to the ones in the dress. Funny what triggers your memory, things you had long forgotten about will come to mind.

I have dug into my UFO pieces and decided to try to finish 1 or 2 of them. If I could find the piece and the pattern, I was doing it. Well....I found the piece and pattern so am going to finish up this piece. I started it years ago for Love Quilts and for some reason never finished it. Probably because I made a mistake that seemed too hard to try to fix at the time. (That's usually why I lay down a piece, usually pick it up years later and the mistake was easy to correct then.) This book also has a fox in it I never finished....but have to find that piece.

Well until next time....Happy Stitching!

What a sweet little stitch for your break from America, and lovely that it brought back happy memories of your Mum.
Your owl is far too cute to have beeb in the UFO pile! Looking forward to seeing more of your UFOs as you dig through your stash!
