Barb sent me several blocks for my Things I love quilt and the scissors and the apple are the only two I have appliqued as of today. She also sent me a cute owl and many school related appliques. My hubby makes fun of me because every morning I go snail hunting. Unfortunately, they may be an interesting bug but they are getting fat on my plants. So I made a snail for my quilt because I do think they are interesting but dangerous at the same time. Along the same lines, lady bugs are beneficial to a garden and when you see one it means they are making repairs so I love, love them. The two owls, which my husband and I adore, represent him and I.
