This month, I am featuring my vegetable garden.  For the amount of care I give, I am always pleasantly surprised with the results:


And for Vickie, I did two rows; the second and fourth from the top – both are paper pieced.  Here are the links to the two rows:  Flying Geese and Tippecanoe.


Photomask Freebie #22

I needed a break from sewing/quilting, so I got on Photoshop and made this photomask to share – Enjoy!
