A couple of months ago Nanette www.fredashive.blogspot.com showed some calendar tea towels she purchased from Spoonflower www.spoonflower.com . Spoonflower is a local company that I love and when I saw Nanette's tea towels, I borrowed her idea. I'm really happy with these, I think I may need to do this every year, and who knows, maybe I'll even design my own one day
I've been busy making some hst's for Margaret's Hope Chest www.margaretshopechest.com
I used a new to me method for this and I love it. Jennifer shared it on her fantastic blog www.thatgirlthatquilt.com . (November 15, 2011 It's so simple just sew 2 squares together the same size, 1/4 inch all the way around and then cut on the diagonal in half, twice. There may be a lot more pinwheel quilts in my future!
It's been a very warm winter here, so much so in fact some of my summer flowers are still blooming. We've only had a couple of frosts and when we did I brought the flowers I had in pots in the garage. They are still going strong!
The weather has been so warm that my daffodils are confused
I won a really neat giveaway from my of my long time blog friends, Amanda www.scrandasmusings.blogspot.com , a gift certificate from The Quilt Show. www.thequiltshow.com . I'm really excited about this. I can't wait to watch the videos, I know I'll get a lot of instruction and inspiration, thanks so much Amanda!
I won a giveaway from Jennifer who lives not too far away.
She also sent this darling plaque, which I'm going to hang in my sewing room of course!
Thank you Jennifer!
