I’ve joined a Winter Wonderland Stitch-A-long on Facebook…it’s a Norma Whaley design and is it ever CUTE!
You have probably seen this quilt or pattern out in blogland as there are tons of us making it! Belonging to a Sew-a-long on FB has been great as you get to see tons of pictures of this quilt using various background fabrics and wools! I am really enjoying it!
Normally, if I was at home and I would be pulling out my bins of Homespuns and wool…auditioning the PERFECT background colours…but I have to be happy with what I found in my travels…and I AM!!
Here are my background blues…and I pulled the green wools from my small bag of left overs from the Old St. Nick quilt that I am working on right now…perfect greens for the trees!
And some nice neutrals pieces for the birds….
Yup…now I get to cut and build…my favourite part to the whole process…
This month, in the Winter Wonderland Stitch-Along, we are to complete the two tree panels which should be totally do-able!
I am so excited…I got word that my new glasses are ready for pick up! I will (hopefully) get to see again! The protective coating on my old glasses had fogged over and it was like living in Tofino (town on West Coast of Vancouver Island)…gorgeous but FOGGY… Not a good feeling! They are progressive glasses so I need them for stitching, driving, reading…everything! I have never looked forward to getting new glasses more! Let’s hope the new ones do the trick!! 8o)
Have a magical Monday and Happy stitching!~P
