Thankful Thursday

When I was posting consistently Thursday was my day to take time to be thankful: Thankful Thursday
Today I am thankful that my daughter has met a wonderful Christian young man and is getting married in October.  The celebrations began on Saturday with an engagement party we had at our home.

What are you thankful for on this thankful Thursday?

Blue and White Quilts

Blue and white quilts again?  Can’t help myself.
Good morning dear friends
Ever since I decided to begin blogging again I have had the hardest time in being consistent with it.  So here I am again.  I finished a couple of sewing projects that I want to show you.
This first one is made with hexagons.  It is all hand sewn and took quite awhile, but I really enjoy hand sewing.  There is something about sewing by hand that is so relaxing.  I think it must cause the brain to go into a different rhythm or something.  I thought I might make a quilt but after sewing  lots of hexies, decided to cover a pillow instead.
           Now where to put it?  On the porch would be nice but don’t want to expose it to the elements.

                                                                   Maybe on my chaise lounge…

                                                            Or on the chair in my sunroom..

The other thing I have been working on is this quilt.  The pattern is called Irish Chain.  So simple and classic.

I wonder if you are thinking ” Enough blue and white!”  I probably have way too much of it.  I have made lots of quilts in different colors.  I’ll do  a photo gallery of all of them sometime, but I always come back to my favorite blue and white.
Do you have a favorite color combination that as much as you try to do something different , you always return to?
