Stars and flowers adjustment.....and another finished rug...

Sometimes when I design I tend to be in a rush, wanting to get the design out as soon as possible. But, I have really been taking my time lately which is a good thing. It gives me time to really choose the right colors and make sure the design is right. So, with that in mind, I was looking at the "stars and flowers" quilt of all,places, here on my blog. Apparently standing right by it I never noticed that there are three blocks with berries right next to one another. This just won't do! It will throw the whole design off in my opinion. I'm glad I caught it for my wool appliqué, but this will be tricky to change the hooked version mom is working on. I see lots of red sharpie in my future....I wanted to share this with you as I know a lot of you are keeping an eye on the progress...
Also, wanted to show you our "Gary's garden" rug that mom finished. It's very different from anything I've ever designed, but has great sentimental value as its dedicated to my Dad. Great job Mom!
Check back tomorrow, our little (Baxter) pig rug will be finished!

Until next time.....

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
