Creative Update

I have been feeling quite guilty about not posting anything for pretty nearly an entire month! Lots has been going on, but since today is Wednesday, I want to do an update on what I’ve been up to in the sewing room and leave everything else for another day. Maybe even tomorrow!

wonky log cabinI participate in a couple of on-line bees.  Unfortunately, I can’t post the photos here because I put them into Flickr and then deleted them! I didn’t realize that you cannot copy and past from Flickr!  Only one survived the deleting – a wonky log cabin I made for the 3×6 bee:


Remember the 018valentine quilt I made for Because you Matter? I delivered it to the social worker and it has been given a new home with a little girl who loves the colour pink. That makes me so happy!

January was my month in the We Bee Canadian group, and I picked a bow tie block done in gardening fabrics. Those, plus some extra’s from my friend Dee and also several I made myself resulted in this top – I love it!!!


And last but not least, here is another Because You Matter top, with squares donated by the wonderful and generous quilters over at Quilts for Kids.

    Awesome quilt tops!

    I’m totally loving the bow tie top in those fabrics. I have a gardening girlfriend that this would be PERFECT for. :o)

  3. It’s bin awhile since I stopped in for a visit to your blog… I love the bow tie quilt — which when done in that particular setting is also called a Snowball, so appropriate with that huge depth of snow on the roof of the house, in the photo’s background! And the “because you matter” top is quite lovely in those purples and yellows!

    Your quilts are fab – I especially like the pink one – and I adore those socks 🙂

  5. Great quilts. I’m drawn to the purple and yellow with stars… And as an avid sock knitter, I appreciate seeing those socks!
