Jungle Fever .... Jungle Fever ..!

Ok, now I have that tune in my head!

I'm a little annoyed at Blogger at the moment. It has occurred to me that although I have programmed my settings to receive an e-mails for all comments left on my blog, blogger takes it upon themselves to be selective by not sending ALL of them. I've recently noticed that some of you have commented and I did receive a notification.

I have since contacted blogger, followed their suggestions and the problem has not been fixed. Sigh!

I apologize for not getting back to you. I'm not ignoring you, I'm just not getting an e-mail that you've left a comment. Sigh .... annoying...!

Onward to the fun stuff!

I finished this little hand embroidered quilt called My Little Garden by Kathy Schmitz. It measures 15 inches by 19 inches!

Have I  mentioned that I just love those little quits? One more to do and the series is complete!

I also pieced this cute quilt that uses 30 different 10" blocks of fabrics. It's called Jungle Fever.

I do like that pattern. Simple and quick to make .... not requiring much precision because you end up trimming your block.

Given that I'm a precision kind of gal, I re-worked the directions to accommodate my OCD! LOL

Thanks for stopping by! Catch you later! Cheers!

Mother Nature .... the following day!

Today was spent shoveling the beauty left by Mother Nature. I think we received over 12 inches of snow! We haven't had a good snow storm in well over 2 years. Snow is good .... and oh so beautiful!

With the right kind of snow, you can build a snowman! I just love snow people. Allow me to share what I built .... indoors of course!

The pattern is called Hearty the Snowman Pin Pal.  Isn't he so adorable? I just love how he turned out.

Late afternoon, I was graced with the following beauty from our sun!

I just had to take a picture .... the light was gorgeous ... covering the trees with a warm glow .... totally in Awe!

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

Mother Nature on a Sunday ... !

I just love it when Mother Natures takes matters into her own hands and forces me to slow down and take the time to enjoy her beauty.

At first we had a gently snow fall!

Slowly, as the morning progressed it came down even harder ..... such beauty!

Sometimes you have to stop and enjoy the beauty of it all. Isn't it what life is all about?

Thank you for this peaceful days! Namaste

Compassion with every stitch ...!

The sun is shining, I am still breathing .... life is good! I have decided to place myself on a media diet and lock myself up in my happy place, quilting/stitching away .... !

I managed to finish this cute little quilt called My Little Year by Kathy Schmitz, started in September 2016.

And ... I completely finished, quilted and bound,  My Little Home. If you recall, it was at a flimsy stage back in September 2016.

I so enjoy working on these small projects! Each hand embroider block takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to stitch.

As opposed to tracing each block, I use Transfer-eze. If you haven't read my recent post on this product, do so here.

In order to not only save fabric but also make the cutting of the stitched block easier, I trace a square on a large piece of cotton fabric using an Omnigrid  3 1/2 inch square and Sewline Stayer Permanent Market - brown.

I will then place the water soluble transfer on the fabric and stitch my block.

I only place the transfer when I'm ready to stitch a block and keep all the other photocopied transfer with the pattern. This way, there's less of a chance that I'll lose a block. Yea, it's happened before ...!

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day! Cheers!
