A Little Progress

It has been months since I have taken the time to actually piece quilts for myself. I had a lovely quilting retreat this past weekend and did finally get a bit accomplished. Who knows when I'll be able to get back to it. One is Tell It to the Stars Mystery from Patchworktimes blog and the other a quilt I started in October.

Beautiful little Dresdens

I haven't been able to work in the studio for awhile. With as low as -12 degrees, I could not get my studio warmer than 57 and it is really hard to quilt in that temperature. The ol' fingers just don't want to work well. Once it finally got above freezing outside I jumped right into quilting Linda's beautiful Dresdens. Hopefully, I can finish up her other 2 quilts by the end of the month.

First Quilt of the Year

Jill's quilt is so pretty and it was fun coming up with quilting for it. I took the whole month of December off so it was a challenge and delight to get back in the saddle again.

2014 Ending

I spent the month of December making Christmas gifts and shut the door to my studio. Quilting started again yesterday and I'll have plenty of quilts to show in the next few days. Meanwhile, here are some things I worked on in December.

Another Hat



Another hat under my belt! This yarn had been knit into a sweater, all done but one sleeve, when I finally accepted the fact that I didn't like that yarn in a sweater. So, once again, I unknitted and reskeined the yarn and now it is becoming Christmas hats and scarves. The good news is I don't have to go looking for yarn for the hats and scarves.

Pomegrate Eaters Rejoice!

This is one of my favorite you tubes ever! I LOVE pomegranates but don't eat many because the fruits are so hard to get out and make an incredible mess. Now get this: Score around the center, twist open, stretch skin a bit, hold half face down in the palm of your hand and whap with a wooden spoon. All the seeds fall out! Amazing! I'm eating these every day now. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ7dk9nDR-k

Catching up!

Finally, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm actually catching up on customer quilts. I have been as far behind and 45, but now I only have 8 more promised before I take a Christmas break. Feels good! Here are 2 I have finished this week.
