Celebrating Mary Brown

Greetings – Less than 48 hours and we will be in 2020!  I cannot say it enough – I am so glad to get rid of the last Decade!  On to a new and brighter year for Clay and I!  Excitement is in the air!  We are blessed!  We are praying for a year full of fun, hobbies, and no health issues!  Would be nice Huh?

Due to problems with my iPhone and Apple watch and good ole Microsoft not supporting Windows 7 anymore, I am, as usual going to be behind in my goals for this month – but that is why we make goals – to break them! LOL.  I had wanted to have 4 more blocks completed for this month toward MB, but only have 2!  Here are my finishes for December:


The flower on the left is black with beige leaves (tiny) and the flower on the right is a cheddar with the same black and beige centers.

Here is what I finished early in the month!  I had wanted to have all 4 corners (16 blocks) completed this year but did not make it!  Goal is to get them finished and then I will start back on the top row and probably do either 1 or 2 blocks a month but no more as I have other UFOs that are begging for my attention!  I did change the pineapple pattern as I did not like all the “leaves” that covered up the pineapple!

I will be adding the vines on the corner blocks as I finish all of them OR wait until I have Rows 1 and 2 completed and the bottom 2 rows completed!  We shall see what happens.

Jan has been sick this month and if she has something completed soon I will do a post for her work.  Let’s hope she will get well soon!!!

Have a great week, enjoy the end of this Decade and let’s go and have a great 2020!

  1. Beautiful work! You enjoy the process, so whenever you finish, getting there is what makes it fun. Happy New Year to you! Unlike you, my 2019 has been fantastic! If 2020 can match it, I will be a happy camper!


  2. Saying Mary Brown is wonderful is an understatement! I took a tour of everyone’s pages in the group and was blown away by the gorgeous work everyone is doing – wow – it’s so inspiring! here’s to a wonderful new year with fabulous finishes, new starts and health and happiness – hugs


  3. I like the blue fabric you used for the bird wing. I always like an interesting bird wing if the design will accommodate one.
    I hope Jan is soon feeling well and back to her stitching. Does she live close to you?


  4. It’s amazing how much our electronics can affect our ability to get things done. The SIT switched to an Android after Apple did away with key features on their phones that she needs for her journalism job. Hope you’ve been able to get all the kinks and flubs worked out so January is very, very productive.


  5. Love the fabric you used on the wing of your bluebird. Sorry you’ve had so many problems get in the way of your quilting. It’s doubly frustrating when you can’t work through the hiccups of life by doing some therapeutic sewing.
