I.s.t.h. February A. Y. O. S.

I have just finished piecing the Feb Schnibbles pattern I.S.T. H, I used fabric from French Generals line
Rural Jardin. I am happy with the "faded" look this line gives to this pattern.

Sugar Shop  by Late Bloomer Quilts using Flower Sugar 
I made this cutie at quilt retreat a couple of weekends ago. I love this pattern and will make it again!!!

I bought the kit for these pincushions last summer and finally got around to making them. Aren't they cute!!!
I'm already planning on making them again with some hand-dyed wool that I have in my stash :-).
The pattern is designed by Verna Mosquera. from The Vintage Spool.

And last but not least, here is a little project using more French General , basted and ready to hand applique and embroider tonight while watching some Brit-Coms on PBS. This pattern came with a greeting card and I have had it in my pattern "stash" for quite some time. I had my French General "collection" out and they just came together like long lost friends..I love it when that happens.....serendipity :-)

Looking back at this post I notice that everything looks very Spring--ish, we woke up to snow this morning and it has all melted now but I think I must be ready for spring!! I know it is a bit early to be thinking about spring but at least I can be ready when it get here, right??

Wishing you all a very hopeful Saturday.....OX Kay

Welcome Home to 58 Berry Street

Happy Groundhog Day everyone.

We have quite a nice, partly sunny, day so far here in my part of  Washington State.

I wanted to introduce you to the next finished block for the Home Sweet Home quilt.
I am a little concerned that this block is brighter than the rest .
The blue photographed much more royal than the actual color. I will move on tho, to the next one.
 "62 Holly Hill" sounds like a pleasant place to call Home!!
More of those tiny strips on the windows, but a very charming house just the same.
Now I just need to select all the fabrics...sometimes this is the most challenging part!!

I"m anxious to start the February Schnibbles.. still need to decide what fabrics to use.
Maybe Valentine's theme??? Hummmmm.
Enjoy the day!

PS decided to add this "group shot" of all the blocks together...Nice neighborhood don't you think??
