Wishing you the happiest of memories and moments
shared with loved ones this Valentine's Day!

When will I ever finish this one?  LOL

Still working on quilting this one!

And, yes we did have a huge snowfall last week!
Here is a picture taken from my front door.
It did cancel our shop Grand Re-Opening but we
have rescheduled for this coming Sunday!

Happy Sew Year!

Blizzard on the way...

...that's what they say?

Not that I want a huge amount of snow.
We have the Grand Re-Opening Party at the
shop this coming Sunday
and it would be a shame it a storm
mucked that up!

Most people around here are running out for the
emergency foods;  milk, bread, eggs, butter...etc.

Not in this house!
Rice for him...
It's cooking away right now!
(What a good wife he has!)

And for me...I have plenty of fabric and lots of projects in the works.
I know that I haven't posted in a while but I have been working on a few things.

A Thimbleberries Stash Buster!
This one goes very fast...15" Blocks.

LeMoyne Star...a class sample in the works.

A Spring Topper for my daughter.
Started this about 2 years ago and made a mistake.
All fixed now and ready to layer and quilt!

Another Holiday Lap Quilt in the works.
This one is using the Eleanor Burns Braid in a Day
technique.  I taught a class at the shop on this one Saturday and
so I used my already cut 2.5" strips of Holiday fabric to demo
and just kept going!

I think I have enough to keep me busy in addition to the
great sewing room organization project.
So for now...
the rain/snow mix is falling and the temps are cold.
Off to work for the day and then home to
Rice and Soup!

Happy Sew Year!

Where has this year gone?
Hard to believe that it is February already.
And the temps have been crazy...
cold, warm, frigid, warm, cold...
Minimal Snow...Makes Me Happy!!!

I made some progress on the Irish Chain quilt.
The center is complete and 
it just needs the borders on...

(after a good pressing of course!)

I am happy with it so far and I know that my sister will love it!

I also worked on a little doll quilt that I designed...

I still need to add the corners and the borders.
It is so cute!

Here she is on the Elan RED Miracle Mat
that I won from MODA...
Love this mat, it is so pretty that
I don't want to cut on it...
But I will one day!
Thank you MODA!

Well, that's all for now.
Enjoy the weekend!

Happy Sew Year!
