Winter Solstice…Round TWO!

As you may know, many of us bloggers, as well as non-bloggers, have been busy working on ‘Winter Solstice’, a quilt designed by Country Threads.  Our goal is to have her done before Winter Solstice…which is Dec. 21 in the Northern Hemisphere.  If you live in the Southern Hemisphere then you have plenty of time because your Winter Solstice isn’t until June 21…2015! :o)


OK…let’s get the show on the road…

Here’s Seattle Judy’s August ‘work’…she is clearly having WAY too much fun with this project!!  Magnificent!

And Glynis has been messing around in her sewing room too!!  She has secretly finished the entire quilt but is only showing what is necessary!  Such a good team member!  Aren’t they cute…


And close-ups of her sweet stars…


Sandy’s wee houses are adorable…

Even though Sandy spent the entire month of August at the lake, she managed to get her houses finished and her wool stars prepped!!

Some of us are using wool for the stars and some are using cotton…either way, all’s good!

And Claire, who is on Hornby Island managed to finish her homework before leaving!  She has prepped her cotton stars ready for being appliqued…

This is the view that Claire has from her Hornby Island deck…yup…she is stitching away… with a glass of wine close at hand!!  Yes, life if tough!!

And here are my wee houses and stars…I have stitched my stars in wool.


And all together…


You have GOT to check out the other bloggers who have been busy working away on their own Winter Solstice…

Pam from “Stitching Between the Lines” (love the name of this blog!!) has posted her wee houses and stars!  You are going to love her post!!  Check it out HERE!!

And you MUST hurry over to Bev’s blog, 44th Street Fabric”!!  She says she is enjoying working with the darker colours…I can’t wait to see what she has done!

If anyone else has posted then send me a note and I will ‘link you up’!

SEW…there you have it!  Next month our goal will be to finish the top off…minus the border!  We will save the border for October…unless of course, you are feeling ambitious and  want to ‘get ‘er done’!!  In that case…fly at ‘er!

Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
