This and That

They are going to replace some electric poles on our street because they are getting bad.  The 2 boom trucks were out front the other day.  I took this picture from inside.

My House block quilt is layered and pinned.  Now to figure out how I want to finish it.

I tried several way to finish this but did not like the way any of them was working.  So I got out the hoop and my invisible quilting thread and started hand quilting it with the long stitch.  My long stitches are not very good so I did not really want them seen.  This will take longer but I think it will be okay.  I have 1 block finished.

Pretty yellow and black butterfly on the Butterfly bush in the center of the picture.  Click on it for a better view.


  1. Your quilt will be wonderful when finished Tudy! I cannot wait to see it finished.

  2. The houses look so cute. I would be stumped on the quilting to.

  3. That's going to be lovely, all the hand stitching will make it special

  4. Your quilt is going to be wonderful after all the hand stitching is done! :0)

  5. your house quilt will be very pretty when you get it quilted. Maybe sometime I would like to do a house quilt. Have a great day !

  6. Like your house quilt. The way you are quilting it looks good! The flower pictures are so pretty.
