Snow and Sew...

I'm ready for spring but Mother Nature says "let it snow!"
I think we got about 9-10 inches and it's still snowing.
I just got in from snow blowing and it is so beautiful that I thought I would share some pictures.
I really wish our school had a snow day but no my son had to go to school. 
The snow is real packy (is that a word? you know what I mean)perfect for making snowmen.
I love how the snow is sticking to the trees.

This is the back yard and patio.

Just a few pictures to show you what I've been working on.
All of these pieces are in various stages of being done.
I'm still working on winter and fall penny rugs and runners.
Just getting ready for the fairs I do starting in September.

 I love sunflowers.  I love doing different backgrounds. 
 Look how different these sunflowers look in brown or black.

More sunflowers the pattern is from Primitive Gatherings.
The pumpkins are my own design.  I like mixing different orange pumpkins with white pumpkins.

 I love the colorful scarves on the snowmen. I still need to do some stitching, add buttons, eyes and snowflakes.
Snowmen is my own design and the mitten pattern is Primitive Gatherings.
 I love stars too!
I like using all my primitive colored wools to make these.
 These penny rugs are my best seller at fairs.

 These penny rugs are so much fun to make!  
I love mixing all the different colors of wool together.
I like how the black stitching makes all the colors pop.
Today I will be spending the day shoveling and stitching.
Enjoy your day,

Just Wishing You All A Happy Valentine"s Day!!!

On Valentine's Day my may be showered with gifts like flowers or candy or diamonds.
I felt like a lucky girl when I received flowers and girl scout honey sure knows me well.
I thought I would share some pictures from a vacation we took in Washington DC.
 Wouldn't we all love to receive something like this...
it's the Hope Diamond.

I am always taking pictures like these to inspire me. 
I love the stonework, look at the detail in this.
The ceilings are spectacular.

I can't imagine painting this ceiling.
 I love this wreath!
Wouldn't this look awesome as a boarder on a quilt.
I love the color combination.
I hope you have a good day and night with your valentines.

Just Working on a Little Green....

I just bought so new hand dyed green wool and couldn't wait to use it.

So I thought I would make a few shamrocks.

  I love how the shamrocks look in this wool. I added a few gold hearts too.
I like how these turned out so much that I think I'll make a some for myself.
These I just added to ebay.
I just love getting new hand dyed's like Christmas all over again.
Enjoy your day,
