Hello from the world of snow. We've had a ton of snow and ice. Our record so far this winter has been 22" in 24 hours. I love to see the trees covered in snow and all crystallized looking. So I am staying home and sewing and planning new quilts. I also got the cleaning bug, so I have been staying up late and going through boxes and cleaning out drawers. School is still out so kids are getting restless because it's just to stinking cold to be outside. I'm looking forward to the new year and what fun lies ahead. Be careful and safe as you celebrate. Blog to you soon. Until then be happy, life is a blessing.

It's Sassafras! How cute is this??!! This was made by Krista, her very first quilt. She did a awesome job. She used the fabric line "Park Avenue" by Moda. Instead of blanket stitching around the flowers, she stitched 1/4 inch from the raw edge, that way when the quilt is washed, the edges will fray up a bit and add a nice soft touch to the quilt. I LOVE it!!! And of course Brandie did the quilting, which is always wonderful.

Don't think you're in the wrong place...Hey there, it's me.. really! I changed things up a bit. Tell me what ya'll think. I need to get a new logo too, and this blog template inspired me, so I started here changing my blog. I hope you like it. I love it!! My logo is coming next. I should be sewing since I have a ton to do, but I thought well, I'll take a minute and do this. It's so much more cheery then the one I had before and right now with all this cold weather, cheery is good. Back to work. Have a fabulous weekend. Life is wonderful!

WoooHoo! I'm going to International Quilt Market in May 2011. Can you believe it!! I'm so excited I can't stand it. May will be here before I know it, there is so much to do to get ready. Luckily I have a great friend , Emily from Crazy Old Ladies, that is putting up with my billion and one questions. It's hard to sleep at night because I have so many ideas popping around in my head, like which new patterns do I do? what should my booth decoration look like? What am I going to make for dinner tomorrow? You know things like that. CRAZY!! I will tell you that I'm going to use the new line of fabric by Deb Strain called Fresh Flowers for a main part of my quilts at market. The line is absolutely awesome. To see it go to the Moda website and view the new fabrics coming in January.

Here it is!!! "Lots of Love ". What do ya'll think?? I used an older fabric line for this one, plus of course pieces from my stash. I found some of the fabrics at the Cotton Shop in Provo and ordered some on-line. This is a wall quilt that measures 30"x42". So this a perfect project, not too big and not too small. I do hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I know I did, I took a break from the crazy hectic life and enjoyed my family for the week. Well now I'm back in the saddle again. Watch for more new and exciting quilts coming soon... until then, happy holidays and happy sewing.
