February sewing with Sandy

Can you believe it?   5 posts in a week.   Shocking, I know!  Call the doctor, quick!   Winking smile
Tuesday was Woolies and since it’s the end of the month, time for show and tell with our projects.  
Again…Sandy’s are shown first.
First up is a sweet pattern by Bonnie Sullivan of “All Through the Night designs”.   It’s called “Ole St. Nick”. 
I couldn’t decide if I wanted a light or a dark background, so did both!   Not sure which one I like better.
Next up is a pattern by My Red Door Designs.  It’s called “Liberty Basket”. We each bought this pattern when we went to the Quilt, Knit, Stitch show in Portland last summer.   What a cute booth they had.  You’ll be seeing lots of their designs coming up this year.  
Isn’t this cute on the wire?
I decided to frame mine.
Continuing on with the Buttermilk Basin Banners Thru the Year, this one is “April”.  
Sandy and I both have quite a collection of patterns by Quilts by Cheri.  This one is called “A Good Day”.   The embroidery is perfect and I couldn’t agree more! 
This last one is from an old Whimsicals book called Threads of Harmony.   The design is called “Got Wool?”.   I’m not sure if the book is still in print.  
The original design doesn’t have the words on the first border.   Sandy decided to add those.   When I was talking to her and she told me what she’d done, I loved the idea.   I asked her if she would mind if I also did my own words, and she generously told me to go for it.  
I now have mine hanging in the entryway.   I love it!
So, that’s it for February. 
We are also in a challenge or quilt-a-long or sewathon, or whatever we have decided to call it, with Karen, which is due to be posted on the 1st.   See you then to show you our progress.  
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs, Anne

You two have done it again. So many good smaller size projects. I like the Santa on the darker background the best but either would make me happy.

Lori said...

What fun projects! Love the wooly Santa and I think Bonnie does a great job designing!

Another delightful month of stitching. So much to love here.
Always blows me away the number of projects the two of you complete each month. I look forward to each installment! : )

Cuuuttteeeee!!!! Love every one of them, both versions! So fun to see how just a different color here and there can change something.

Jeanna said...

I am always amazed at how much you and Sandy accomplish in a month's time.

I love all of these projects, especially the one with those tiny log cabin blocks.

I just love seeing all of your great projects & thank you for posting the Christmas Party. I had to move away from a great group of ladies & miss stitching with them. So fun to see what your group is doing!

Can I ask where you usually get the frames you use to frame your stitchery? Maybe I'm not looking in the right places....
