Firstly, I do want to apologize for not paying a visit with my friends on blog land. There has been so much to do in the past few weeks. I am happy to report that I had my last class for the semester. I have but 2 (two) papers to write and school will be over for a bit. Yey! My brain will be free to create with fabrics!
Gosh, it felt so good to turn on my machine Wednesday!
This is what I decided to make, a small winter wall hanging. The pattern is from the book Classic Country Christmas by Lynette Jensen of Thimbleberries.
The quilt is machine appliqued, pieced and quilted. It doesn't have a label yet. I've been thinking of Winter Wonderland as an appropriate name.
There is something rewarding about completing a quilt. A quick project is the sure thing to get me back in the quilting groove again. I now feel all fired up and ready to tackle some of my UFOS.
Which reminds me, I am getting up there on the Stashbuster queen list. Perhaps I ought to finish the Winter Sentry quilt today. I just cannot seem to come up with a machine quilting design for the border. Perhaps I'll get inspired!
Have a great day everyone and thank you for stopping by!

What a great wallhanging! Yes, there's something motivating about getting a project done! I need to pin and quilt my It's a Wrap--guess I should be doing that instead of blog browsing! LOL!
Love your cute little wallhanging. Good job!!! Glad your back with us!! We've missed you!!
Oh your close! Only 2 papers! I"m glad you got to turn on your machine and sew a bit. The wall hanging is adorable, and it probably cleared your head a bit to just relax!
It's almost time to RELAX! You deserve some downtime so badly.
I hope you're enjoying quilting!
I never underestimate the therapeutic value of sewing, it's a cure all when applied on a regular basis. Enjoy your therapy, it's well deserved! Your WW wallhanging is adorable.
A kickstart to get back into the groove is always welcome and what better way than finishing up a perfect quilt for Xmas!
Lovely little quilt!
