    Wow, major difference! Love the big shower: I'm definitely a shower girl, so that's sure nice instead of the big tub. Love the calligraphy on the wall.
Beautiful quilt.
You have been a very busy gal!

    Love it, Vicki! Had to laugh when I saw all of your "red hats" for your Red Hat Society. And your quilt turned out beautifully. Had it been quilted already when you took that photo, or is that something you still have to do. Admire the fact that you do triangles -- I'm lazy and try to stay away from them.

Hugs, Eve

    Some of these April blogs spelling out the letters were better than I could think of, and your whole blog combined makes even me feel motivated. I hope you get a "Best Blog" award out of this one, Vicki, it deserves it.

    Wow! How do you do that?!

SCOTMAMA 3/2/2014 5:23PM

    I see you could make them big or little; as some look like a glass with a bowl over them, so the bigger the bowl (or mushroom) the larger the stem. Short and fat could work here too, but I like the combinations you've put together. I can see that none of them you did are very big as you have them placed by the electrical plug-in so I can gauge the size.

How did you hook them together? Glue?

    Sounds great Vicki -- and it's something you can do at your own rate. When we get to the point where we can just breeze through these we can call ourselves "athlete's)
