Yes, there has been more bloggers sharing their photos of the first snow. And it went from pleasant weather, to boom - cold!! You get up in the dark and prepare dinner in the dark - seems like it all happened overnight.
This was a leader/ender project - sashing for my 2013 BOM with Quilt Doodle. My days have been rather full, so running long strips thru the machine got the 'sewing fix' and when I was a little more focused, I cut to size and even did up the corner stones. One more block to go. I hope I can steal some time to get some of the rows together.
This is another leader/ender project over at BeaQuilter - chains and links
which became these.....
I know they aren't real scrappy, but I had some left over dessert rolls and jelly roll strips of Morris Apprentise and the background is 'cut-offs' from a quilt backing. The amount of scraps I have will determine how many blocks I get - then to think of the setting, borders, etc..
Than I had an afternoon of time - real time to play. This is the Simply Small project over at A Quilting Life. I went with just three 9-patches as no one in my family has a long table so something a little shorter works. I used a gifted mini charm pack of Esprit De Noel and setting triangles are scraps from a quilt backing. I should know the Moda used for the border, but slips my mind (so much does these days) - but I had just enough for the border and binding.
The backing is a left over piece of Red Rooster - used that up out of the scrap bucket. Even the batt was a trim off. Love it when those odds and ends get used.
I received this wonderful needlecase, FQs and sweet card in the mail yesterday as part of a swap group.
And look at all the goodies inside! Just love the Create added - such a great touch. I plan on filling this up for use this weekend - teaching a class at a quilt guild sew-in.
There are some new buttons on the side bar for you to browse and possibly join in. I know it is a busy and stressful time of the year - but sometimes you just have to grab some pretty fabric and sew for FUN.
