Sorry it has been so long, I’ve got a lot to catch up on!
I guess we all have a special admiration for the touch and feel of fabric. I know I sure do and I really enjoy folding it so some goofy reason! I especially enjoy looking at a pattern and dreaming of how it might look in a different color way or even a different fabric theme altogether!
Several weeks ago, I ordered and received a new pattern from Primitive Gatherings called “Lost Mittens”. I ordered several for the shop! I love Mr. Mittens down in the lower corner. I think he is very cute, even though we don’t get snow here; he is my ticket to having a snowman! Ha!
However, I decided to change up the pattern. I thought I could make a fast cut using my Creative Grid 2 ½” tumbler ruler and the Snowman Gatherings jelly roll. I layered about 3 strips carefully on top of one another and cut away. The cutting goes extremely fast! I decided on how many I tumblers I needed and went to down making my rows and I got it all sewn together and I decided to go ahead and add my inner border before working on the wool so I would not get the top too out of shape. I went to work on my snowman and wool kit. He sure is a happy snowman!
I got him finished and then sent him to finishing school with Cindy Gravely! He came home and then it was time to get him finished up!
He now has a sleeve and is hanging in the shop for you to see. I have 2 more kits left in the shop if you are interested in doing one for yourself!
I have also wanted to make up one of Red Crinoline Quilts, Harmony Mills. I have had this fabric of theirs and it is just a lovely piece of fabric, so I decided to use it for the borders and then pick out a great fabric for the alternating blocks – also from Red Crinoline Quilts. It is a cute pattern and it goes together pretty easily. I am going to kit some of these up!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads.
Love and hugs,
