Oh, yes, Cheri, I am sewing. I am making a baby quilt for my first grandchild, finishing a pickle dish, and making a wall hanging. I love your flags and will send for the pattern.

That is a fun little piece, I love doing small quilts.
I am sewing but not as much and this week is our anniversary week, so hoping to get out and paddle all week.

Love the flag quilt! And the pincushion is so darn cute!!
I have been sewing this summer between yardwork and gardening and picking cherries. The cherries are all done, so hopefully more stitching will be accomplished.

Very cute quilt and pincushion! I've been sewing a bit, but I'm going to have to come to an end here very shortly and start packing everything up as we are moving in July. Yikes!

Ginger said...

I absolutely love your flag! reminds me of the one on your Folk Art Gathering Quilt, of which I am making two, one for me one for my bestie. Love the quilt btw, is much more work than I expected, but am loving most every minute of it. working on the 14 flowers on the borders(x2!) all needle turned. I very been sewing on them nearly three years! I would love to win the flag pin cushion to commemorate the last year of sewing on the quilts. pick me!

Robin said...

Love the little flag to celebrate the 4th.

Nancy said...

Wonderful flags! I hope to sew this summer - some clothes for both me and my granddaughter and a quilt or two in progress. People keep visiting and I don't like to ignore them to sew! Happy summer to you and thanks for offering the pincushion. It's perfect!

Kurt Schindler said...


You bet, I am sewing. Almost every day, I work on a project. I have several (well 5) and I work on each one during the week. I kind of like this system. I got a few projects to the flimsy stage.

I decorate with patriotic quilts and decor during the summer. Your pincushion would be the perfect addition.

Thanks, Charlotte

Sally Hurst said...

I never stop sewing! I'm even sewing for Christmas now--egging a head start.

Cherie Reynolds said...

Cheri--another great pattern. Just went to Chicago quilt show and bought many projects to complete. I would LOVE to win a pincushion made by YOU!!

GIJane279 said...

Yep I've been working away on projects this weekend. I worked a lot on my winter crazy table mat, I'm getting close to being finished finally! I remember the fun of that class and "someone" stitching hers to her jeans lol. Sure wish I lived closer so I could join more of the classes. :)

Phyllis said...

Oh love these!!!
Yes, I will be quilting this summer, unlike most years we will not be going away this summer, so it will be a staycation... or in my case a 'sewcation' :-) Nothing wrong with that.
P.S. should I win, even though I have a Dutch email address I do have a US mail address that can be used....just in case ...

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.


Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna
http://www.mediafire.com/view/keqr4lqp7wr1rru/Sri_Gita_Govinda.pdf

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna
http://www.mediafire.com/view/uhcuigauc6uqiei/Govinda_Lilamrita.pdf

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.
http://www.mediafire.com/view/k9j3ldwbt17be3b/Ananda_Vmdavana_Campu.pdf

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love
http://www.mediafire.com/view/mpbncdyt97nw0x7/Prema_Samputa_The_Treasure_Chest_of_Love.pdf


And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box
http://www.mediafire.com/view/c81a7cp43n5v6aj/The_Meeting_in_the_Box.pdf

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu
http://www.mediafire.com/view/911h9qoxn4ca027/The_Meeting_of_Sri_Krsna_Disguised_As_Abhimanyu.pdf


And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

Beatrice said...

Hello, gorgeous pincushion. I'd love to give it a home (even if it's in France). As for sewing this summer, I went to a quilt show last week so it's all systems go.

I tried my first attempt at improv piecing last week, my compulsive side took over though and I took it apart to make 90 degree corners. Haha! Oh well it's not symmetrical, and that's a start. Right!? Thank you for the opportunity to win the cute pincushion. One of my many vices; pincushions......... WhitneyBryce

Mary said...

So cute!
I want to sew, I've been planning to sew; I need to sew! Life is busy!

Love your Simply Red, White and Blue quilt and pattern design. Very cute pincushion too! Great way to use some of our beloved buttons!

Debbie said...

Definitely sewing this summer! Doing a simple paper pieced pattern and making crazy patch blocks with the scraps-both 6 inch. I also carry a go project box with me at all times and am doing EPP hexagons and clam shell pinch pockets in that. Gorgeous flag quilt and would love to win the pincushion-thanks for the chance!

Margs Primitive Quilts said...
