One Flower Wednesdays

One flower from some happy fabric.

Managed to get 11 more flowers attached, total is now 101. The trouble is that my arms can't get any longer, so I will have to find a new way to photograph my growing garden. Maybe I'll have to stand on a chair next time.

Not too much new, the garden is almost cleaned up, most of the lawn furniture is put away, now just waiting for snow. We had a tiny bit the other day, but melted almost as soon as it hit the ground. The colder weather is a good excuse to do some sewing anyway.
The other day I made 12 crumb squares.They are 6.5 inches but I see by the picture I did not trim the side of one yet. Good way to use up small scraps, but my scrap box never seems to get any emptier.
If you want a good tutorial go here.
I do mine the same way.

Great garden! I think my favorite novelty one is the rocking horses. Crumbs look great! My box has a self-filling hex on it I think, maybe yours does too. I peeked further down and I love your crazy quilt block. Those ribbon flowers are excellent!
