New Project

I am working on a new project. Actually, I started working on it in January. I put it aside and am now getting back to it.  I am working on Winter Wonderland, designed by Meg Hawkey at Crabapple Hill Studio. Isn't this just the cutest Christmas design ever?


I have completed all of the patchwork blocks. I delayed starting the embroidered blocks because I was waiting for my new light table to arrive. They are now all traced onto fabric. I completed the first two sections. Here they are on my design wall.

Rose Windows of Notre Dame

I was fortunate to be able to visit Notre Dame in 2014. I was most excited to see the Rose Windows. 





Now they are gone forever. I am very sad.

Cute Little Distraction

I found this to be a cute little distraction when I have big projects that I have lost interest in. (Dangling participle)

This project is from Julie Cefalu, TheCraftyQuilter.com. I have also posted this on Instagram and shared it at #sewhappyminiquilt.

Thanks for stopping by.

Back in the Sewing Room

This has been a crazy year so far. Not much posting has been going on. I have been distracted by a health issue and by the complications of setting up a snowbird place in FL. We now have a double-wide in Lakeland, FL for winters. The plan is to go there October - April every year. In February and March, we drove back and forth several times between KY and FL to complete the purchase and to get the home set up. A lot of work, but also fun. All clear on the health issue.

I have spent a couple of afternoons back in the sewing room. I have to get my groove back. I am ignoring the long arm for now. I have been working on the 2018 BOM from The Quilt Show, the blue barn quilt designed by Edita Sitar. Here is my progress so far.






I find the blues to be very relaxing to look at. I will be working on putting more of those rows together today.

Thanks for stopping by.
