Look! A squirrel!

I have two finished tops to quilt, at least three tops in progress, a half knit blanket, a half knit scarf, a purse back pack to sew for my mom, and four or so wall hangings that need various amounts of work done to finish them.

So I started a new project.

I did at least finish sewing together the half square triangle quilt top before I started picking out sunny colors of embroidery floss and buttons.

Snowy days

We had a snow day yesterday, that turned out to be an ice day instead. The kids and my sister both had days off school and we all sat around in our pjs all day and had hot chocolate with marshmallows. Lots of electronics for the boys and a marathon of Veep episodes for my sister and I. (How did I not watch that show before yesterday?!)

Today everyone is back in school, leaving me in a sunny, dripping world, with embroidered snowflakes as a reminder of yesterday. I did the last bits of finish up work on this quilted wall hanging. It is a combo of machine quilting, fused fabric appliqué, and hand emboidery.

It turned out just the way I wanted it, from the quilt lines of the falling snow flakes to the little bunny pausing to watch the bids fly over the trees. So much fun to make!
