Progress of a Different Kind

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!!!
It's a mostly sunny afternoon here, and all the batteries are being charged back up.

The early, extra cold weather has made it necessary to re-stock my mudroom with wood, already!
I am, of course, enjoying seeing the animal tracks in the snow.
Of the larger animals, I've spotted coyote, bobcat (not surprised with the many, many rabbit tracks around), grouse & deer - always fun to see evidence that they are around!

I've been making good progress...of a different kind, too.

Hand stitching, of course.
This is the back view of my Stained Glass Strings quilt.

But also, to mix things up, I've been taking some time to soak some postage stamps that I received (removing them from the envelope paper), to add to my stamp collection.
See the stamps with the quilts?

And I've not even needed to get out the deck of cards to entertain myself.
All of these need no electricity, and allow me good creative thinking time!

That's lead me to design, in my head, a whole bunch of interesting quilts.
I did make a sketch and note of each, of course.
There are sew, sew many new quilt designs I hope to add to my site, as I'm able.
Stay tuned, as the adventure continues! :)

Happy Stitching!

Making the Quilts that Warm Hearts!

It's coming...Old Man Winter has done a hard knock at the door this week, with the first snow of the season - which has now melted, but the double digit windchill temperatures and strong winds are making it feel like it's mid-winter....brrrrr.
When I was enjoying my morning coffee, snuggled under a quilt, by the woodstove, the phrase 'Making the Quilts that Warm Hearts' came to me!
And they do just that!! :)

So the quilts you make are treasured for years, you know I always recommend a quilt label added to the back of every quilt you make.
My Fabric Quilt Labels make that easy - and now I have Version 2 available, too!
See both versions of the Fabric Quilt Labels here.
I have added a 'partial free shipping' option for those who don't qualify for the free shipping!

Happy Stitching!

November Update

Even though I've not been able to post as much on my social media sites and here, this autumn, know that I'm around - making great progress on some new quilt designs!
As you probably already know, this time of year is more challenging for me electricity wise, though I've learnt to work with what I get.

I'm especially excited about two new quilts that I'll be offering in January, if all goes a planned!

Some of my progress has been working on stitching my newest Stained Glass Strings quilt.
Here's a lovely green block completed.

And a black & white one.
Scrappy fun!!

Also, since I wrote last, I've added the next blocks to the newest series quilts (Storyland & If I Drive...), plus Rows #1 & #5 of A Novel Idea.

You can see them and the other news here.

Happy Stitching!

Crisp October Morning

I took my recycling/garbage down the laneway at daybreak this morning.
It was beautiful out, but I did need a hat and gloves, as the temperature was at freezing!

Full to-do list ahead...

Happy Stitching!
