WOW - December 10, 2014

What I busy week I have had we are getting ready to start a large remodel in our house and this week the laundry room get gutted. We also went to Deck the Hall Ball a local concert. Weezer and Imagine Dragon were the headliners and they were great.  I do have to admit four hours of sleep is catching up with me today.

The only sewing that I did this week was on my Annabelle’s Adventures quilt.  I finished two more block I’m almost done with the next one I should have that done next week. I love the flowers on her head and boy she is patriotic.

Have a great week!!

WOW – December 3, 2014

The weather has been cold and clear for the last five days.  We had snow the day after thanksgiving witch is rare in our neck of the woods.  Things should start warming up soon. 

The last few weeks I have been working on three projects the first is our challenge quilt for the quilt show.  I have my background complete and the heart. I will be embroidering words over the white section and then some additional hearts and embroidery. Hopefully my vision will work out in the end.  It looks really loud right now. 

The other project that has been occupying my time is this wool and cotton quilt that I started about nine months ago it was part of a class that I took through my quilt guild.  I ran out of the green thread that I was using for the leaves so I’m putting this on the back burner for a while until the thread comes.

Lastly I’m making good progress on my Annabelle’s Adventures quilt.  These are the two latest block that I have finished. These blocks are just so sweet hard not to love them. 

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving mine was really nice.  My mom hosted this year so I had very little to do.
