I've had some luck with blog drawings lately, scoring two wins! Yesterday this beautiful package of luscious wool arrived from Cathi at Shakerwood Woolens. You can also find her on Facebook.
Pam Buda at Heartspun Quilts. I got to choose my own pattern, and I chose this beauty. I love 'old fashioned' patterns, and can't wait to get started on this. I think I already have the perfect fabric in my stash.
RSC16 have been cut and will be put together into blocks in the next day or two.
Gifted Gorgeousness is progressing nicely. I hand stitch with a group two afternoons a month, and this is the perfect project to take along. There are nine stitcheries, and I hope to get a little ahead so I can assemble the quilt before Christmas. THis was a kit I won from Kaaren at The Painted Quilt a couple of years ago.
SAL. I loved the quilt so much I rushed out to buy fabric and get my top sewed. Then I spent half a day looking for just the right backing fabric. I hope to get it sandwiched and basted today, and then I'll start quilting on Thursday. No pictures just yet, so hop over to see Kaaren's.
I went to a friend's house this past weekend for a mini retreat. She is hand quilting a quilt that was pieced by her mother for a grandchild's graduation. DK has never actually finished a quilt before, although she started a couple of small items years ago. She is making fantastic progress, and I helped her make the binding, which will be attached very soon! I took hand projects to work on, and made some progress on my GFG. My goal is to work on it daily, and perhaps have it finished this year. I started it in 2010, so it's time. Many of the hexies are from One Flower Wednesday and from a monthly hexie swap. I loved making the hexie flowers, but I do NOT like sewing them all together.
I guess that sums up the month so far. With all the rain and dreary weather we've been having, I have plenty of time to stitch.
Hoping for Spring....... Sunny
