Before the holidays started last year, Karen and I were talking and she asked me if I wanted to do a challenge with her in the upcoming year. Another monthly project? Hmm, why not? After finally deciding on the pattern, we thought it would be fun to include Sandy “no blog” in our challenge. She’s always up for making something new… So began our journey.
We decided on a pattern by Lori Smith of “From my heart to your hands”, called Fit to Frame #6.
No rules….just get er done! We decided on 3 blocks per month so that it wouldn’t be hanging on for a whole year. After all, they are only 6 inch blocks. Very doable in a month.
Sandy and I both decided (independently of one another) to do cotton backgrounds with wool applique.
This one is Sandy’s…
and here’s mine.
So… we’ll be posting our progress around the first of each month for the next 4 months. We will also be posting on Instagram if you want to follow us there. @cottonsnwool and @sfeigner. Hope you enjoy our journey.
Now head on over to Karen’s blog and see how she decided to make hers up. It’s always fun to see how different people can take the same pattern and put their own personal style to it.
That’s it from my neck of the woods. We had a little snow over the weekend, but certainly not enough to bring our snowfall total up to where it should be. It’s been nice having such mild weather this winter, but we might be paying for it this summer in the form of forest fires. Not a good thing. I’m sure the people on the east coast of the USA would love to send us some of their snow. Wow, they’ve been walloped! We will be going to Boston in Sept. Do you think their snow will be melted by then? LOL
