Thursday Update (Last one for January)

I have to say I am very glad to see January go. It is not in my favorite season and when it is over that means we are getting closer to my one of my favorite seasons. Really all of the seasons except WINTER are fantastic! Winter does have it's qualities but cold is not one of them!
All right enough about that and on to what has been happening in the sewing room this week.
 I finished cutting and arranging all those I-spy squares into rows.
Got these two wonderful Cotton Way Patterns in the mail.

All rows sewn and ready to be sewn together, side and bottom sashing rows finished and ready to go!
First three rows finished. I am thinking that I would like a red border to go around the entire quilt because my binding is a colorful stripe fabric.

Thursday Update

This week I have been working with those I-Spy squares that I received last year when I joined two swaps.
 I decided to use all boy type blocks and make this one for Bennett. The quilt uses 88 I-Spy and is a disappearing 9 patch. This is the first time I have made one and so far it is fairly simple.

the white will become the borders and the paw prints will become the placement squares. I have a blue backing fabric and a striped fabric for the binding.

Thursday Update

It sure has been unusually cold here this past week!!
I did not even want to go outside to get a picture so here is what I saw out my kitchen window. The pine tree was so full of ice that it was leaning against the house. I am happy to report that it is no longer leaning so far!

I did make it out to the mail to find this had arrived!
So fun to open it and find the Feb/March edition of Quilt and the beautiful Bliss quilt kit! Thank you Bonnie and Cotton Way. I am going to enjoy sewing this beautiful quilt as soon as I get brave enough to cut the beautiful fabric;)
Here is a look at the project I finished this week.
I like the size of this bag, not to sure if I love the color combo yet.

Thursday Update

I have some fun quilting news to share. I entered a giveaway in December for a beautiful quilt kit given away HERE. I love Bonnie and Camille's beautiful fabric and patterns. I love reading their blogs and admiring their work. So It was a very exciting New Years Morning when I read that I had won!
I have managed to get a bit of time in the sewing room this week. I am working on a new handbag for this new year. I will reveal more next week. I also have a fun Christmas gift certificate begging me to spend it;)
Stay warm and toasty!

Happy New Year!

Wow 2011, really I could not even imagine this year back in high school. Now that only seems like a few years ago. We did not even try to stay up until the ball dropped this year. I know boring huh. We did play two games of Catan and Ben won both. There were lots of fireworks going off in the neighborhood.
A very Happy Birthday to my Grandma S. and my Niece Tiana, both share birthdays on this first day of the New Year!
