Remembering Dad

Today is the 50th anniversary of my Dad's death

My niece, Sharry, hung the casket flag - the first time it has been unfolded, and set out a photo of Dad and Mom

The little note says:


Webster W. Blazier

Jan. 16, 1887 ~ July 24, 1959

Thank you, Sharry -- I know Grandpa would be thrilled that you honored him today.

Take note, the flag has 48 stars, this was before Alaska and Hawaii became our 49th and 50th states.

Start of #2 Biscornu

Finished the top of this biscornu. I think it will be quite nice when when the bottom is stitched in place -- the way the two pieces are stitched together makes a wonderful looking piece.

A little more progress. Have to get this done -- friend Shari has designed a wonderful pansy biscornu that I am so anxious to stitch.
A few hours later and more done. Central portion complete -- now to do the rest. I like the way this is working up.

Here is the beginning of my #2 biscornu.

I'm also beading on a little bird.

First Biscornu just needs a button.....

My first biscornu is finished except for the button -- I'm going to a quilt show this afternoon and may find what I am looking for there -- if not, I have an idea to use a stork scissor charm center top. The stitching of the two pieces together went much easier than I thought it would -- a sweet little pin cushion.

The top is finished. Amazing how long the back stitching takes. Have to be sure the backstitch is absolutely square. Now to backstitch the back piece -- the two back stitching lines are used to piece the two pieces together so once again, the measurements must be accurate.

In Progress......

Another biscornu in progress.
I think I will stitch several and then piece them.

First Biscornu

Last night I wanted to stitch something nice, quick and easy.
The result is this beginning for my first biscornu.
Still more stitching to do and then the finishing will be a bit of a
challenge for me -- but it should be fun too.

Let's Go For A Walk......

My wonderful friend, Pollyanna, waiting patiently to go for a walk.
