It’s a Jammie Day here in Texas

Last night we had rain, sleet, snow and ice.  So today the town in almost shut down.  Terrible roadways and stranded motorists.  I feel so grateful that I no longer have to get out in it or make a decision about what to do.  So I stayed in my jammies all day and sewed.

About 10 days ago I went to a quilting retreat so I thought I would show you some of the little projects that I worked on.

This was a fabric challenge quilt and we had to focus on the acorns hence, the oak leaves.  The applique is a freebie from Sentimental Stitches.  It is from an antique quilt called Beyond the Cherry Tree.  I was pleased with the end result.

I also completed these tops.  I ran out of red fabric for the border on one, so I will just bind it in blue.  I think that the little one is so cute.  I want Mr. Quilts to make me a doll bed so I can use these little cuties. Small Quilts 002 Small Quilts 001









I also worked on this wall hanging called House on the Square by Jacqueline Paton.  I have since placed all of the red wool chimneys on the top.  Maybe I will sew them down tomorrow because it looks like it will be a repeat of today. This was a fun quilt  to make.

Until next time – stay warm.
