Little Green Apples


First, I want to thank CAROL for hosting this month's HOP in time for the first week of Spring.  The challenge was simple - play with green or apples or both.  Since I used apple fabrics in last month's project, I decided it would be greens this time.

Some Puss in the Corner blocks ,,,,

Or some call them chains ,,,,

And some even call them Jacks.....

A nice way to eat up a lot of scraps.  I even used several pieces of left over binding to finish this scrappy quilt.  

 I had just enough of this floral print with green leaves to back this sweet challenge.  
 It will be one of my Guild Donation quilts.

Is It Spring Yet?

Yes, we got SNOW!  We got a little over a foot in the Valley, but other areas around us got over 2feet.  I have been stitching - some by hand when the power was out - and some by machine.  Some that is not showable yet, and some that I can share.  

I had a gifted grocery bag full of CW scraps from another quilter who has changed her style of quilting.  Lots of lovely scraps in strips, pre-cuts in squares of all sizes, fat eighths, fat quarters, and chunks.  Using them for CAROL's  Jelly Roll project.  Hey, it doesn't have to be all JR's as it all works and it is getting used up.

And I am ready for the next HOP - Oh, I can't wait for some green!

Coast to Coast


It seems like both coasts are getting slammed the next few days.  Depending on who is reporting our East Coast weather, it is a guess at how much snow we will see.  Some say 3-6" while some go as far as over 20".

I plan on grabbing my jelly roll strips and play.  It's been a long time since I touched my machine and pre-cuts will be easy on my still healing broken ribs.

Stay safe and stitch on,

Sewingly Yours, Sharon

OOPS - I Did it Again


A couple of days after my last post was the first of our series of snow storms, AND of course I took a fall.  I knew not to put out my hands to stop!!  But very bruised and a few broken ribs were the outcome.  So I have been a bit laid up.  SOOOOO glad I got all those quilts finished when I did.

 I'm not able to cut fabric or lift a lot of weight, but I am pulling fabric for some projects.  I have some Jelly Roll strips left overs that I will feed with my scraps for Carol's project.  March is a long month, so I have plenty of time to work slow.

I am pulling fabric for a program for the next guild meeting - can't show or explain (some guild members follow me).  Will follow up once the program is done.

We lucked out with the first two storms giving the valley just a few inches (but ice - hence the fall).  This third storm did dump on us, but it was so warm that half was melted off by the time my son came to plow and shovel.  A wet, heavy mess I couldn't handle. 

Stay safe and keep stitching,

Sewingly Yours, Sharon
