Friday Pretties

Americana Rose Quilt

I'm posting for Friday a little early since I will be tied up with the barn sale today.  I'm feeling the summery colors of red, white and blue.  The quilt above is one of my favorites made with the Cottage Romance line.

Vintage Hobnail Milk Glass and berries

There is nothing like the crisp colors of red and white.  I've been wanting to do a red and white quilt for a long time.  As the saying goes, "So many quilts, so little time..."

My Porch

Not much time to sit on the porch these days.  I haven't been out here since Max passed last week.  He liked to lay on the cool concrete.  I thought I heard his tags jingling up the stairs yesterday and I almost went out in the hallway to look, crazy as it is.  Check out more pretties at Joyce's blog!

Friday Blessings,

  7. Oh Renee ... I just scrolled down to read about your dear Max. I'm so very sorry for your loss. He was such a beautiful dog, and I know how much you must be missing him.

    I really love the quilt you have shown us. Wow. How stunning. I assume this is one you made? Amazing! You are so gifted.

    And oh, the white bowl with the red strawberries. First of all, so pretty to the eyes. I love the combination of white and ANY color. Secondly, those strawberries look like they need to be eaten!

    Your porch is beautiful. I pray you will soon be able to sit on it without the memories being overwhelming.

    Tender Hugs to you ....

    I may see you tomorrow at that Fab barn sale. I am going to go back some posts and find out details. Praying for NO rain!!!

    Beautiful blue chair and pillow.

    So sorry to hear about the passing of your baby. I don't know what I'd do without mine.

    I host a weekly party/meme called "Summer Sundays". It is about what summer means to YOU. Hope can come and join the fun.

  13. Hi Renee, I just popped over from Nancy's-A Gardner's Cottage and so thankful I did. I am a quilter and I love your red, white and blue quilt. Your porch is adorable and I understand missing a pet-my beloved dog died Christmas night this year.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
