My day for the Shades of Blue was topped with our Valley finally getting some snow from these passing snow storms. I love taking pictures of the mature apple tree off the corner of my house and everything held such a bluish glow as it was dressed in snow.
I had this magazine bookmarked for the project for this hop. Actually, I have a few projects I want to make that are in this issue.
A cute embroidery and the hopes of fulfilling the need to hand stitch for a change. I took the liberty to change it up a little bit as it looks a 'little lost'.
I opted to use fuseable windows in blue and the red door for more 'POP'. The red is from the left over binding drawer and I had just a 1.5" x 2.5" piece left when done. The vintage tin was one of my greatgrandmother's button tins and the wooden cutout was made by my Dad (who has been gone for 13yrs. now).
Just so you can see the fun little blue print. This is a vintage feed sack piece that I have been holding (gifted to me). You just have to use fabrics! A pretty soft blue with apples in the lacey flowerets. I have about a FQ of it left and added it to my 30's tote to be used later.
A cute little 'Welcome Friends' hanger was a fun project to start the New Year with.

Thank You for Visiting
This is adorable!! I love how you made it pop! I have one vintage feed sack and have been thinking about how to use it~ you have inspired me to pull it out and start planning!
You have certainly brought the piece to life. It is sweet. Thank you.
Very pretty! The blue with the pops of red really works. Congrats on a very fun finish.
What a sweet little quiltie to welcome your guests. I love the colors in it and yes, that pop really makes a statement!
Your stitchery quilt is so charming!
What a sweet hanging! The little house is cute and the additional lettered hearts really add to it. Thanks for sharing!
Your little hanger is absolutely adorable! I love the embroidery and the feedsack fabric is so pretty. Well done!
I like your changes to the pattern. Cute and fun! I have snow out my window today, too.
Your Welcome hanging looks great! Especially with the red door! :-)
The changes you made were spot-on. Love hand embroidery on quilts, too. The red additions were wonderful. Oh my, I need to take lessons from you about using fabrics - especially feedsacks. :(
Hi, Sharon!! That is just adorable and so welcoming.
This is so sweet! I love the design and colors you used. Adding the applique windows and doors was perfect for it. Love the tins and wooden cutout, too. Thank you for sharing this with us!
I love that stitchery, but I couldn't find the magazine cover on their site. Is it an older issue? You did a great job on it, and I loved your change. I also loved that you photographed it with important pieces of your life. I love button tins!
WOW, this is so pretty and I love your subtle changes. The tin and wooden cutout are so perfectly displayed with your project. Thank you for the fun post and for sharing your gorgeous stitching.
That is such a sweet quilt - love the windows, door and binding and the fact that it is a lovely feedsack that you have kept for a special project and now is in use!
Very cute! Thanks for sharing.
Adorable! Lovely embroidery work.
Very cute little quilt. The embroidery is done so well.
Your little quilt is lovely. The stitching is beautiful!
What a sweet project for the Challenge! You definitely did the pattern a service by brightening it up a bit, Sharon.
oh I love the stitchery, so sweet!! And the snow - wish I was there!
