Pat's WIPs

 Here are Pat's WIPs!!!!  You will note that there are only ten.  Somehow we missed one!  and the other one I did not display because it is an upcoming project for our year of smalls and I don't want to give away any will have to wait for October for that one!!!

Above is a project that we called our Summer Project.  Yes, as we dither over everything, we usually pick a project for each season.  (In true fashion I have finished none of them!).  Anyway, above is Basket of Flowers Pinkeep by Stacy Nash Primitives.  I know Pat changed her colors.  She is a queen of conversions.  She actually gets a charge out of converting projects for us. 
 Here is Basket of Memories by BBD.  I am in love with the Aged Pewter thread.  The whole project is just so gorgeous.
 Christmas Garden by BBD.  Amazing.
 I want to stitch this one!!!!!  It is by Jardin Prive and the stitching with that thread color on that fabric is so sweet!!
 I think this was our first group project pick.  Pat is going to stitch her with Elegant Eggplant and it is going to be amazing!
 Joyeux Noel by BBD.....we could have a stitch along with this is in my 12 too.
 Summer, Autumn ,Winter Loose Feathers by BBD. 
 Pink Snowman by Shepard's Bush.
 Queen Sheep by Shepard's Bush.  Love!!!!!

Pat's projects are simply wonderful!!!  Plus she quilts too!!!  She is a total talent and the nicest girl!!!!!
