The beauty of it all......!

Today is a SNOW DAY! ;o)

You can always expect a snow storm in April. It's just a question of when!

Thankfully, the beauty does not hang around for too long. It is spring you know!

What a perfect day for a latte and some quilting! I'm working on a project that I hope to share with you soon.

On the project completion front, I finished Tic-Tac Baskets, a pattern by Jan Patek Quilts.

I used Jan Patek's fabric line Blessings from Moda. I love Moda! ;o)

The quilt is machine pieced and appliqued!

As much as I enjoy needleturn appliqué, I also find the preparation for machine appliqué quite relaxing.

I use that prep time to listen to audiobooks. Not something I can easily do when I'm using my sewing machine.

Penelope and I had some bonding time. I played with rulers and free-form on the Tic-Tac Basket quilt.

Gosh, I'm loving ruler work! ;o) My, in the ditch work, has improved quite nicely!

What's on Penelope at the moment you might ask? Well, my Coney Island quilt! Yes, I feel comfortable enough to tackle that one! I can not wait to share the finish quilt with you!

Have a great week! Thank you so much for stopping by! Cheers!

And the winner is....!

I do hope you have all had a wonderful week. Here, it's been mud/spring weather for the week. It's okay, water is good! Besides, it wouldn't be the North Country if it wasn't for mud season!

For this event, I took my trusty cauldron out of the pantry.

Hum... I see that it's been a while since it's been used. Either that, or I need to dust more often! lol

Well, given that I'm allergic to house work, I will have to have more give away! lol

As you see, the cauldron is filled with the comments from you wonderful people on Blog Land!

Good Luck!

Next, I went for my old book of Spells, Potions and Creepy Concoctions!

Blew the dust off that one too! Gosh, has it been that long?

I did cast my usually spells over the cauldron just to make sure there wasn't any funny stuff going around. lol

I like for things to be fair! ;o)

Once the cauldron was out, Thing came running to my sewing studio! She's always up for a good spell! ;o)

No, it's not from Dr. Seuss, Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Did anyone watch The Addams Family series? The earlier Muster series was pretty funny too! Of course, that was when television had quality programming! LOL

Okay, now I'm sure you are all pretty anxious to see who Thing picked as the winner!

Alright, here we go!

The winner is.... Anonymous Nancy E.!


Would anonymous Nancy E please contact me!

Thanks everyone who participated in this give away!

Spin, spin and more spinning ...!

How did the week go by so quickly? Sigh! Oh well. I've been quilting away and actually have pictures of a finished project to show you.

I've been working on this little quilt, more like a table topper.

The pattern is called A Little Twist by This & That, designed by Sherri K. Falls.

I had a fun time putting it all together!

I used fabrics from Moda, Simple Abundance designed by Bonnie & Camille . Ya know, that picture does not do justice to the orange. It's much prettier than in the photo.

Now that this little quilt is done, I'll be looking into making some Schnibbles patterns by Miss Rosie's Quilt & Co. I've seen them on Darlene's blog and they are enticing!

Yea, that's all I need, another project! lol

What the heck! Quilting is suppose to be fun and fun I'm having.

Don't forget, today is the last day to leave a comment for the give away. Good luck to all that commented.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of cyberspace! Keep well! Cheers!
