My little "Stitch Me Up" project

Today is my day to show my "Stitch Me Up" project.

 Sending many thanks to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt http://www.sewwequilt.com/ and Jane at Jane's Fabrics and Quilts for hosting and cheer-leading this stitching party. Also thanks to Debbie, Cyndy and Mdm Samm for the fun patterns.

I chose to use the flowers from the tea time/coffee time pattern and put them on a little antique coaster:


The pink flowers represent Dogwood Blossoms and the purple represent pansies.


The little coaster reminds me of my Grandmother and brings a touch of spring to my tea time.

I hope you'll stay awhile and grab a cup of tea and look around.

Once you're ready please visit the other blogs that are participating in the bloghop today:

  50. Hi Ronda,
    Before I read your comment about your coaster reminding you of grandma, I had exactly the same thought. Thanks for that! Hope all is well. Love, your slightly stressed out brother (exam on the 11th and I still have to finish studying some chapters!){:(
