The simple white orchid - meaning - charmed or charming and as a single flower in a corsage means 'Simply Charming'. This particular cultivated orchid is so named and a favorite for June weddings.
KEEPING IT SIMPLE
On the wall - a simple table topper from left over HST's combined with simple white squares. I am in the progress of handquilting - keeping it simple. This is my June UFO for Judy's list and I should have it completed in the next day or two.
Just some simple play in my scraps. The barrel of scrap triangles is REALLY stuffed! Easy 1" x2" geese x 8" paper pieced strips that will get used in a quilt some where down the line.
I leasurely played with another set of 'Stars' for the Christmas quilt-a-long. Again just using my scrap holiday fabrics. Will be my nearly red/white quilt.
And I am playing with this little 'charmer' of simple loves of the stitcher. Floss, needles, bobbins, motifs, little snip scissors - just simple stitching charm.
