I was finally able to get the O.K. to post pictures of my two quilts for the SAT 16 Challenge from the Stretching Art and Traditions. This year was Illuminated Letters and mine are my initials RC. I painted the R and added 3-D roses made out of satin ribbon and embroidered silk ribbon roses , my inspiration was my Tattoo ! The letter C was a challenge because it is raw edge applique and that is totally against my love for perfection, I added the tree which was a hankie or doily I found in the thrift shop and placed a little bracelet charm from my home town on the branch. Now it was time to design a family crest . My maiden name is Wolf and my husbands last name is Cruz .

As I was working in the yard , moving 15 Mums to different flower beds I actually got stung by a bee ! First time this year , it was burning till late into the night and this morning it was hot and swelling was started , stupid bee sting allergies, tried the sugar and spit as always and it helped a lot no ER this time ! But I enjoyed my flowers still in bloom and a few little guests !
