Winter Blues for the Fabric Scrap Blog Hop

Now you all know that there is nothing better than a baggie of fun scraps or leftover bits to inspire a combination of fabric fun and mad jigsaw puzzle skills.

PQ 13.2 In Silhouette

This week’s challenge for the Project Quilting Challenge was to do a silhouette in some way. Last week I had done a pattern test for Sandra Healy Designs of a fun little Cardinal.

January Scrap Happy Day

I’ve always enjoyed playing with scraps, but have been making a concerted effort to use up my stash and my scraps since the Pandemic began. I have purchased some fabric in person when storefronts finally re-opened, but find shopping on line to be an imperfect solution when the stores are closed. These past two weeksContinue reading “January Scrap Happy Day”

A Fun DrEAMI Project

I was sorting through some bins and drawers looking for my little stash of orphan blocks to find one for the SAHRR.

Cutting, layering fabric and batting and some stitching happened rather quickly.Continue reading “A Fun DrEAMI Project”

I Love Thursday #63

While most of us found 2021 to be a trying year there were some incredible highs and lows.
