Itching and Stitching

Itching and stitching going on over here at the hollow. The quilt above is finished and will be mailed back to customer this week. She has a blog so I want her to have the honor of showing the whole quilt finished.

I not only enjoy my hummingbirds but I love my butterflies too. Enjoy my view!
Thank you to all the well wishers who left messages on yesterday's post. I'm doing well considering every now and then I itch like a flea on a dog.
Also discovered today a wonderful little blog with a free kitty and sunflower redwork on the right side bar. You have to go check out Attic Window Quilt Shop!

Oh my gosh your view with those winged beauties. Delightful, simply delightful. Just like the quilt your sharing. So pretty the variations of designs. Enjoyed this!

The Itchy and Scratchy show is on at 7:00. If you hurry, you can catch it.

Love the butterflies -- you're so lucky to have them fluttering by!
The quilt looks intriguing.
Hope the itching dissipates quickly!

Carol said...

OMG those butterflies are just beautiful...what a treat! Please take care of yourself.

We have two butterfly bushes and love to see the butterflies. This year, though, we have way fewer than in other years...same situation with the hummingbirds this year (as I've already mentioned to you). I hope things improve here next year for both butterflies AND hummers.

Itch to Stitch sounds like a blog name.
I want to see the whole quilt, so you will have to link us to your customer's blog when she posts a photo.
Hope the itching is getting better.

Lovely butterflies in your garden too.

LOVE your quilting and hope to see the finished quilt. Very nice butterfly picture! What kind of plant/shrub is he photographed on? The blooms are so pretty.

Hope you have a great itch-free day!

I tried growing a butterfly bush one year but it just didn't take. Yours (and the butterflies) are beautiful!

Oh, my goodness. Thank you so much for mentioning the Attic Window on your blog. That was so kind of you. Love your blog too. I see you like applique as I do, so you bet I'll be visiting a lot.

Looks like a fun quilt. I have some pictures of the butterflies just like you.

OK I am catching up here, how did I miss both of these posts. I can not even pronounce your itchy rosea condition. Sounds like no fun at all....and a sore throat, yikes, I am still trying to get rid of mine from the 3 pumpkins I kissed all day...snot nose and all....lol.. So feel well, sleep well girl,
Your show and tell looks very cute, I hope you tell us where to go peek!!!
Hugs, Carrie Love the butterflys on your gorgeous butterfly bush!!

QuiltSue said...

Hope the itching's stopped and the stitching's carrying on?

Kaaren said...

My butterfly bush is the same color as yours and the Monarchs just love it! I must try to get some photos as well.

BTW, 2 of my responses to you were returned again. I don't know what the problem is but it's sure frustrating!

Karen said...

Horray!! It's finished! Who is the happy recipient blogger! I would love to see it when she blogs about it!!
Hopefully by now the meds are starting to help! Here's to no more itching! But lots more STITCHIN!!!

I love butterflies! Next year I want to plant a butterfly garden to attract them.

Candace said...

Wow - your butterflies are definitely first class, Mary - and they have their own Butterfly Bush!
Cheers!

I like butterfly, why don't you post some originality. Please do that, that will really work.
