Lily's tooth bear

Lily has started kindergarten so it will not be to long before her little teeth
start falling out.  I saw this on Martha Stewart's web site and thought it
would be the perfect little tooth bear for my granddaughter :0).
I did not finish a quilt this week but I'll post Lily's bear, before he gets mailed,
over at finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean.

The little tooth goes in the pocket and the tooth fairy replaces it with dollar bills :0).

Happy Sewing,

 Thank you so much Adelaide, what a lovely gift, I miss you too.

Brookgreen Gardens 9-18-13


  by Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see   
A poem lovely as a tree.   
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest   
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;   
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;   
A tree that may in summer wear   
A nest of robins in her hair;   
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;   
Who intimately lives with rain. 
Poems are made by fools like me,   
But only God can make a tree.

Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historic Landmark located just south of Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet, S.C..
These magnificent  trees are hundreds of years old, this year they are underplanted with thousands of caladiums.  The gardens moto is " Ever changing. Simply amazing."

Happy First Day of Autumn, Kim.
Caladium of every kind along side of a beautiful woven fence to cover an irrigation pump.

Orphan block table runner

Cherrywood hand dyed fabrics with wonky stars made at a Gwen Marston retreat.

I kept over lapping the star arms on my first attempt at wonky.
I've got to practice my free motion quilting so I can do something besides this wave line :0)
This little table runner is off to a doll swap partner after we agreed to a runner instead of a doll quilt.

I'm going to link up with Amanda Jean, you should drop by and see all the amazing finishes on her blog :0) on Finish it up Fridays!
Happy Sewing,
