More To Share

Yes I've been busy. On my last post I showed blocks for a quilt I had started working on again after starting them 5 years ago. I used the following book for the patterns for that quilt.






Now keep that quilt in mind as I continue. I found the directions for an interest three dimensional pinwheel block on this blog http://pumpkinpatchquilter.blogspot.com/2011/09/3d-pinwheel-block-tutorial.html
This was my first attempt at the pinwheel.


So...I started thinking this would be nice added to another block from the above quilt. So...along with five more pinwheels and the garden girl block I chose I have a new wall hanging.






I bet you're sitting on the edge of your seat now. (teehee!) So...drum roll please.


I embellished the pinwheels with buttons and the girl with buttons, lace and pearls. Now on to the next project. See you soon!

WIP and other things

On my post I shared some quilt blocks I had been working on. I've finished another block to show you.


There are 2 or 3 more blocks to complete and then the hard part. There are many blocks that have to be 'set in' in L shaped corners. Oh, the joy. What did I get myself into? Another challenge Ollie!

Last week I was busy sewing up a storm. Among other items that I'll share in another post, I made a tote from leftover fabric that I sewed a sewing machine cover from and I used more of my favorite sheep fabric to make a tote to carry my drop spindle in.

In closing I just have to make a comment about our winter weather. Yesterday at 5 PM one could see the green  grass  brown weeds in the back yard and hey, even the stones in the driveway. By 9 PM we had approximately 12 inches of snow and this morning it totaled nearly 2 feet. More on the way tonight and tomorrow. I think I'll spend the day sewing hibernating.
