A Charming Idea

half finished.
I need to stitch one more "Sweet" charm
pack together to finish my hexagon baby/small wall quilt.

I used soft flannel on the back and cross stitched all the seams.

Finally Finished

A Tisket a Tasket block #3 from
Anne at Bunny Hill Designs

The wool looks even softer before it is stitched down.

Anne's cute bunny!

I don't know why it took me so long to finish, springtime yard work and some organizing could be it. Oh if I could just sew all day everyday!!

Looking for Spring ...

my blog and pictures look so wintery, it's been cold here in the Northeast.
Oh here it is

I finally found some pansies at Lowes, and today is the last day my kids can go snowboarding at their local mountain..... warmer temperatures must be on the way.

Pictures don't do justice to how pretty and the beautiful colors and texture of the wools are.

A Snow Storm and some Charming ideas..

Wow we had a storm today,
snow under the roof on the patio.
Those little wire fences keep 190lbs.
of 2 labs out of my gardens.
That's how sweet they are.
Sewing room window.

Snow days are nice because I get to sew a lot!!!

This is what I am going to do with my 2 "Woodland Bloom" charm packs.
I should have 4 sections like this for a nice size quilt.

I've been practicing my machine stippling and I'm feeling a little better about it.

I'm using 2 Mary E. charm packs for this beach quilt, that my husband named "Dots" and was inspired by an Idea I saw on Monica's blog, thank you Monica.

I'm using 2 "Sweet" charm packs and hand stitching hexagons backed with flannel for a baby quilt.
I am cross stitching the seams on the back, if I like the way this turns out I may make a full size quilt like this. It's a great take along project.
