Making Snow....sort of

With warmer than usual temperatures here, there will be no White Christmas for us this year. No worries, because even with out the white stuff on the ground, I can still make snow angels.


                                           Merry Christmas!

Its....Nutcracker time

I have a small selection of nutcrackers which I had planned to add to this year, but have not gotten around to looking yet............ so I just doodled one instead.

The Center

My new project is beginning to take shape. I have the center medallion together and am currently working out my ideas for the next part.

at this stage it is 30" square

This quilt is being made using mostly clothing, the only quilting cotton here is the off-white, everything else is T-Shirts and flannel P.J pants so I know I have to accept imperfections in the piecing.

You may think that working with knits in quilts can be especially challenging, but I simply stabilize the knit with a lightweight fusible on the back so that it will not stretch and change shape. I have had this fusible for a while, you see those lines?, this was a product made some time ago specifically for quilting...for a different purpose, but it is fulfilling the need in this project
