Getting Ready for a "Sew" Day.....

The snow is coming so I had to prepare for a "sew" day.  

I have to say many of you quilt bloggers have inspired me to start quilting.  
I always wanted to be a quilter.  I've done a few projects many years ago but never considered myself a quilter. 

So to get me started....

I signed up for  my very first B.O.M. through Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop (I have my eye on another one).
 It's How Does Your Garden Grow by Norma Whaley....I love her quilts!  
It's wool appliqué triangles with homespun triangles.

I have the first two triangles done.

The third and fourth triangles are prepped and ready for stitching.  

I'm going to do the stitching tonight and tomorrow.

I'm mostly a stitcher so this project is a little out of my comfort zone.  
What I lack in knowledge I'll make up with enthusiasm.

Enjoy your day,

It's Snowing again.....

I thought it was time to put all the snowmen away
but NO
it's snowing again!

I made this runner using a pattern from Primitive Pieces by Lynda.
I had to give it my own touches of course.

 So I'll just start...

thinking spring and keep stitching.
This runner is made from a Country Stitches pattern.

Enjoy your day,

I listed these table runners and a few more

Happy Winter....

I have been taking full advantage of the cold winter to work on some cross stitch, wool projects and unfinished projects.
I started this before Christmas and just finished the cross stitch portion a couple of weeks ago. I just love the frame around Santa with the snowman, trees and houses.

The above is a pattern from Brenda Gervis of With Thy Needle and Thread. 

I'm almost finished with this table topper. I just love all the scrappy's a great way to use up all those little pieces of wool. I'm not sure how I'm going to finish the edges yet.

This is a pattern by Lynda Hall of Primitive Pieces by Lynda.

I also tried my hand at quilting. This was a kit I bought many years ago. I had everything cut and marked but that was as far as I got. So one very cold day I finished piecing and hand quilted it.  I really haven't done much quilting but I hope to do more.

Don't look to closely because some of my points are gone.
 Now to bind it and I'm done.  It will be great to finish this off.

I love this penny rug!
It's a pattern from Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings.
All ready to be stitched. I'll start this tonight.

I listed a few things on eBay...
