Too busy for Club…NEVER!

Last week was a busy week for me, what with reaching 100 Followers and having a Give-Away….Sometimes life is so hectic that you have a hard time fitting everything in…that is how the blogging world has been lately!  I didn’t fit Cloth Castle Club into my blog  and I feel bad as there was some good sharing…so better late than never!

Now, you know how much I love snowmen…well how about Christmas chickens?  I think I have a new passion! 


Aren’t they adorable!! P1030619

Nothing say Christmas…like a chicken…? huh… P1030620  Some cute mug mats….P1030622  P1030625P1030624


Do you remember this lady?  Every month she has made herself something new and boy, does she strut her stuff…I need to put her on video!  Quite the character!  And a very nice sweater/jacket!


A Halloween quilt…cute!  P1030628

How sweet is this lovely flannel and wool wall hanging!P1030641 P1030642 P1030643

I loved the little details on this wool project- lovely stitching and teeny tiny buttons!  Adorable!

A gorgeous sewing room cross stitch…my sewing room does NOT look like this….where’s the mess? P1030661 P1030663A very sweet Christmas stitchery with beads for berries.P1030664 P1030666

A charm pack quilt…quick, easy and very lovely!


Finally Natasha demonstrated the Cloth Castles new die cutting machine- she is cutting fabric into jelly roll strips.  For a small charge customers of the Cloth Castle can have their fabric cut into charm packs squares or jelly roll (2 1/2 inch) strips…how fun is that!

P1030668Whew…now I am all caught up with my blogging….but you know what that means!!  Now I have nothing to write about for tomorrow!!  I better start sewing…or should I go on a field trip? hmmmmmm
