Catching up

Hi there,   It's been awhile.  Thanks to all of you who emailed me to make sure things were okay.   I guess I took a little break.  It wasn't planned, but maybe needed.   I'm going to try to get back to a regular blogging schedule and it will help that I've joined Lori's quilt-a-long.

We are doing Jan Patek's "Fall Festival" Block of the Month.   It's a fun quilt with lots of different types of blocks.  

This month we are showing the pumpkin block and the crescent moons.   I took a picture last night when the lighting was terrrible.   Good lesson.   I'll do better next month.

I took this next one before I had stitched it but wanted to show you
 because the colors are much more true. 

Sandy and I are doing a little quilt-a-long of our own using Jan Patek's "Pine Tree Ridge"pattern.   

Again....bad picture taken in bad lighting!

If you've been following me on Instagram, you know how much snow we've had here in Central Oregon.   Record breaking snows!   (And...more on the way tomorrow)!

Mr CnW is 6' tall, and so is that berm.  

There was so much snow that our street was down to one lane.   

This is the view from my nest.   It never gets old!

Now, to catch you up on our show and tell at Woolies.  These pictures are from our November gathering.   I can't remember the names of the quilts but maybe the makers of the projects can fill you in if you ask in the comments section.   

Sandy made this quilt from a Temecula Quilt Shop quilt-a-long.  

Another finish from Sandy.   

I think this is an old Buttermilk Basin pattern that Sandy also made. 

Linda E finished this Buttermilk Basin pillow. 

And this cute little hanging quilt from Lily Anna Stitches

Linda E also made this table topper by Kim Diehl.  

Linda H showed us how she uses punch needle when she wants a fluffy look.   

Barb shared this quilt with us.  Her daughter wanted the binding mended.   
It was Barb's very first quilt.

But she knew enough to add a label.    

We didn't have show and tell in December and completely forgot about January.   Next up will be February, I promise.    I did quite a bit of projects during the holidays but they were all gifts and I forgot to take pictures.    Yikes. what's happening to me?   LOL
