The sun is shining in Music City this fine Sunday my friends, and that makes my heart sing!!!
Yesterday, our family in North Carolina got to play in the snow! Isn't our world a wonderful creation?
Days like today make it easy to honor the greatest Creator of all.....
Thank you Father for the gift of this beautiful world!!!
Yesterday was Scrappy Saturday, but I have already finished up the blocks I originally planned to do each month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in PURPLES which is the color for February. Instead, I chose to work on last year's RSC project - Rainbow Pineapples. You can click on the name of the quilt to see the history of how this quilt has come together.
These are the green-aqua-blue-purple sections of the flying geese border. They will be added to these.....
.... pink-red-orange-yellow flying geese sections. The good news is that I finished the quilt top yesterday!!! WooHoo!!!! It turned out every bit as beautiful as I imagined it! But you will have to wait until tomorrow for The Great Reveal - sneaky right?!? LOL!!! I think it will be worth the wait, so be sure to come back tomorrow to see :*D
As for the Stash Enhancement Report - there's a little eye candy to share....
|This is NOT my quilt - it is a picture on the pattern!|
This is the Bargello Tree Skirt pattern designed by Martha Eddy of Eddy & Eddy Designs.
Isn't it amazing?
I've been on the lookout for quite a while now for a pattern to make a quilted tree skirt. This past Christmas I was really unhappy that I had not made one yet and had to put the old one out. So making a new one has become one of my focus projects this year. And I know better than to wait until closer to Christmas to start it LOL!!!
I really didn't want to go with the traditional red and green - actually I could SO see this in blue and white! But then I found this gorgeous Jason Yenter fabric in cool blues and greens and immediately fell in love...
Then I picked up these to go with it....
That rich royal blue will go where the black is in the pattern picture. And the best part is that I got all these fabrics at sale prices!!! You know I love that!!! I just need one more green to finish up the fabrics for this project, so hopefully I will be able to start it for my NewFO Challenge project next month :*D
I have not done any hand stitchery this week, but I managed to get quite a bit done on my Shore Thing Scarf. Hopefully I'll have a finish to share later on this week =^..^=
Finally, I want to annouce the WINNER of my fabulous giveaway of Happy Town fabrics by Jacquelynne Steves of The Noble Wife blog .....
Mr. Random Number Generator pulled up a number .... and the WINNER is.....
Denise who blogs over at Count It All Joy!!!
Congratulations to Denise! I have to say I was really tickled when I saw her name come up next to the number! Denise is a wonderful bloggy friend to so many of us, and she has several grandchildren who will definitely benefit from these fabrics in her crafty little hands :*D
Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!
Hugs & Blessings!
