I had the first class for my Vintage Ice Skate. It was a five hour class. I really didn't think it would take me that long to color/shade in the skate, but it did! Tomorrow we start the embroidery on it. I can't wait to make this up into a wall hanging. It matches our Christmas colors perfectly!
I made the Aurifil Block of the Month block for January. I think the next block comes out February 15th.
We had a snowstorm at the end of the week. Our power was off and on all day, so I did not want to plug my sewing machine in. I decided to sort through all of the charms I had collected from participating in several Denyse Schmidt charm swaps. I had been looking for the perfect scrappy quilt to use with them. I found it! I am going to use Jen Kingwell's "I'm a Farmer's Daughter" pattern. I am just stumped on what to use for the backgrounds. I love Jen's use of scrappy neutrals, but then I get hooked on it having to be all Denyse's fabrics and I don't have enough backgrounds. I will be hand piecing this one, so it will be a long term project.
...and I just have to share the cute little purse and doll quilt I made for my niece! She turned three today. She is also my Goddaughter, so I wanted to do something special. The quilt is made from the scraps that were left from the quilt I made for her before she was born.
Okay--all selfish sewing from here on out! ;) I have been pulling fabrics trying to start a new project. Linking up to 4/7 Sewing challenge
