Background Check




Trying out a neutral for sashing my postage stamp pages.  Liking this burlap color a lot.  

Only four more pages to go to make twenty-five blocks.  

But then maybe some 4-patch cornerstones???

More Postage Stamp Play...




Played with stamps today after I saw Victoria's blog.  It's the most fun I've had since this awful winter weather arrived.  Lisa's sheep really made my day!

Old Love



I made this little heart pillow in my very first applique class many, many years ago...long before back basting, fusing, freezer paper, templar, etc.  Except for the ruffle, it was all hand stitched and needle-turned, which is still my preferred method.  You never really get over your first love!

Chickens on Parade



A whole flock of chicken pin cushions were "hatched" at the first meeting of Ellen's new Craft group.


Can't wait to see what's next.....

Now What?



My Needle Arts group at the library is having a batik half-square triangle exchange.  This is my haul so far.  Looking forward to playing with them and seeing what others will make with theirs.  I have a feeling their will be lots of different arrangements.  Any suggestions?

Small Change



I finished binding my mini hexie tray cloth yesterday.  It measures only 5" x 7" and didn't take long to make.  But it was so small that it got lost in the sewing clutter here.  Cleaning out is a good thing.  Never know what's hiding under all your stuff!
