Wednesday Fun

So much for no snow. It may be a more quiet Thanksgiving than I would like, but I'm still thankful for so many blessings. Thank you all who read and comment on my humble little blog. I'm very grateful for the fun I can have stitching, quilting and sharing with you all!

Below is the link to a Bolivia video I made to show in church on Sunday. You may have seen the link already on facebook. Feel no obligation to watch. I just thought some of you may be interested.

See video HERE.

Love to you all!

Stitchin' on the Weekend

It was a cold and foggy day most of the day on Sunday. Good day to stay in and prep a little stitching and clean house before the holidays. 

 I found this cute free primitive pattern on Notforgotten Farms. I had this great piece of  Moda toweling that is perfect for stitching on. Check it out HERE. I usually find these in the remnant section of Fabric Depot and seriously pick them up for a few cents. They are seamed on both sides and I just trim it even and sew a small hem and use them as napkins or towels, depending on the size.
After looking at the finished piece I realized I needed to add a few needles to my feather tree. I think it looks better.

I started this cute piece this weekend too,. It was in the latest issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects and was designed by Buttermilk Basin.

It looks like winter has shown up for several of you. We may get a little snow later in the week. I hope it is after Thanksgiving so my kids will be able to make it home.

Have a fantastic Monday!!

November Inspirations* Small Quilts

Quiltworks First Friday was showcasing a variety of small quilts. Here are the ones I liked the best.

 I loved the background fabric on this one. What great texture!

 Close up of the boat in the above quilt. Simple up close, but super effective in the quilt overall.

 This was miniature- super tiny!
 A wool piece- patriotic- my fav!

 By Kristen Sheilds, started in a class with Bumble Beans,  Victoria Findlay Wolfe. I don['t "do" modern, but greatly admire both of these quilters.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you for all the offers of flannel. I was able to get some today and it should be enough to finish the top.

Winter Quilt

I gave my daughter a flannel quilt I made years ago in a mystery class and she told me recently it is getting thin and she needs a new winter quilt.  This is what I started on this week.  A simple pattern that is bound to be warm.

The problem is I don't have much flannel. Saturday was the Stitchin' posts yearly PJ sale. The earlier you get there, the better the discount. Wear your PJ's get 5% more off.
 I actually stopped so we could take photos of this amazing sunrise!
It's good to see snow on the mountains after such a dry summer.

 If you look in the background you can see pajama clad shoppers. It's busy but everyone is pleasant.
And you'll never know who you will run into. Here's Anna from Woolie Mammoth
I had a fun morning, but unfortunately I didn't find too many flannels! 

Happy Wednesday!

Thanks for all the sweet comments you leave on my blog. I read and treasure every one of them, although I'm not able to respond personally to them all.
