Block 4 ~ "REST"...


I have to tell you that I love an old boot spilling over with flowers. Don't you?
It speaks to me of old traditions, wise words, peace for the soul, and 'r e s t' ...


One day, Lord willing, I'm gonna have me a verandah filled with old boots...


Roses, geraniums, gerberas, and sweet daises.
They can all tumble over the side of my old boots and make me smile when I 'r e s t'  in my comfy rocker and sip my fresh coffee every mornin'...


I might even have this quilt laying over my lap in the autumn as my flowers and me greet a new sunrise.

We're a third of the way through the quilt now, so here's the layout for the top half...

 
 Hope you're loving this project as much as me.
The pattern for 'r e s t'  is $2 here in the shop.

Have a sweet r e s t f u l  weekend, won't you?

bless ya heaps,

  2. This is gorgeous and very nostalgic Jenny, love it, beautiful blocks appearing. This one reminded me of my Son I L late grandfather, who I never met, but had made clay plant holders including an old boot style and I was fortunate to be shown them. Does take one back in time and to look forward to 'rest' taking in the outdoors and gardens. Thank you Jenny another beautiful project, Judithann :-)

  3. I love this . It reminds me of my grandmother and mothers flower gardens when I was a very young child.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
