I promised more pictures of the house, but in true fashion, I just can’t seem to get my act together. So, you’re just gonna have to go over to Anna’s blog to see some.
She showed up yesterday morning (unannounced, I might add ), and brought her trusty camera with her. I was still in my PJ’s planning on a nice quiet morning to putter around. You know what they say…”the best laid plans…”
Since she showed you house pictures, I’ll show you what I’ve been working on. I’ve definitely got my mojo back since getting settled in here.
made into a pillow.
and another one. Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet…
but I think I’m going to make it again in wool. It’ll be fun to see them side by side.
Both patterns are from Primitive Stitches. I just love her patterns.
Here’s another one from the same designer. I got the kit from my friend Karen and am in the process of machine quilting it. There are a couple of rows that have to be ripped out because of tension issues, so I have that still to do.
I am NOT a quilter but I figured “how hard can cross hatching be?”. Well, now I know. UGH!
By the way, Karen is having an AWESOME giveaway. Head on over there. You might still be able to get in on it.
Am getting this BOM from Primitive Gatherings. It’s called Autumn Quilt by Heart to Hand. I can’t believe that I’m caught up on it. The next 3 blocks are on their way. (I know this because my bank statement shows it!)
And you can’t get ready for Christmas too soon.
Pattern is called “Seven Santas” by the talented Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night. Just have to add the borders and I’ll be done.
Last week when the latest issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects arrived, I fell in love with so many of the patterns. Instead of dog-earing the pages, I decided to just get busy and start on one of them. This one is by Cheri Payne and it’s called Autumn Wools.
If you haven’t seen this magazine, you need to head over to their site and get yourself a subscription. It’s well worth it!
I’m trying to get this next quilt done as fast as possible because I want it to hang in the entry.
This is my progress so far.
Actually, I also have the center block finished but didn’t get a picture taken.
The pattern is called Folk Art Blooms and it’s by Buggy Barn.
We’ve also done a few projects around the house. The latest being recovering our dining room chairs.
I think they will look nice with the Buggy Barn quilt which will hang on the opposite wall.
So, that’s what’s going on around here. Have a great weekend!
