One Flower Wednesday..........And Toto Too?

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.  -Mahatma Gandhi



........and the story continues...........A couple of Wednesdays ago I posted some hexi poppies for the magic poppy fields where Dorothy fell asleep on her way to the Emerald City............and since those poppy fields were soooooooooooooooo big I realized I would need some more hexies for the hanging so here is Dorothy in the poppy field..........and Toto too!


There you have it...........A puppy in the poppies..........a pooch in the posies......a  pet in the petals....a p......(ok, ok, I'll stop)...........but not before inviting you to check out the other beautiful flower gardens growing at Karen's One Flower Wednesday.......click HERE

And speaking about pets............I do have to show you my furry quilt helper...............



 Last night I laid my State Bird Dresden quilt top out on the floor to measure for the backing and Tinkerbell decided that I needed her help..........she checked out the corner and then rolled over the top to check the back of it............(I think it passed inspection).....................I'm off to the sewing room to see if I can get the State Bird/Flower Dresden quilt done this week.............
TaTa For Now.......................

Those poppies are going to POP (tee hee) beside the emerald greens. Animals are such great companions. And always complimentary of what we're making :)
