Back in the saddle again...

My break from my sewing room gave me a boost of enthusiasm and I managed to get 4 more blocks for my 1880 sampler made and the patterns written. 
I need to get ahead because the next 3 months will be very busy. 
Using the leaders and enders method, I am also getting closer to finishing Pinwheels for Caroline.

Here are some of the best results from my photography lessons with my cousin.
I also used Picassa to soften the edges of the photos. 
Low Blue Mist Penstemon 
Scarlet Paintbrush
Western Paintbrush
