I've been away from blogland the past few weeks due to a virus that swept thru my household. Despite feeling crummy most of the time - these hands were certainly NOT idle. Here is just a peek at some of the things I've been working on since mid-October:
As you can see from the picture above, I'm starting another Dear Jane quilt - Lady in Red. My new "Club" year began last month here in VA and I'm happy and quite astonished to announce that I have 80 new students for my 2013-2014 classroom program.
Here are a couple of Christmas project peeks - they are finished and will be on display from now thru QUEST at Kelly Ann's as kit samples. I'll take better pictures of them at the shop this weekend. The first is my Zip or Zag pattern made in holiday prints and the 2nd is a peek at a scrappy Christmas Tumbler quilt.
I also made a quick & easy Quilt throw to use thru Thanksgiving. It was a 2 hour project. I backed the quilt top with soft brushed flannel homespun rather than batting and backing and it drapes lovely. Now it just needs binding.
And for bearing with all my above blabberings.... a special treat just for my friends and followers...
Do you like these darling little pinecone ornaments? I think they'd look lovely in both Fall and Holiday/winter fabrics.
On Monday, November 18th, I will provide a FREE tutorial and pattern with you to make your own pinecone ornaments. They are fast to make and you could display them on your table this Thanksgiving or hang them from your Tree. So start gathering your supplies. Here's what you will need: tiny applique' or straight pins. Strips and scraps of fabric (at least 2.5" wide), ribbon and a small/medium styro-foam egg approximately 2-1/2" x 3-1/4".
