I'm back and boy have I missed you! It seems like forever since I have posted. Before I start my post I want to say "Thank You" to everyone that has left me such sweet and kind notes here on my blog and in emails. Your compassion just filled my heart with love and my eyes with tears..."Thank You" for caring about me and my family.
Sometimes you just need a break to regroup your life and sometimes its just good to rest your mind and heart.
I can't wait to catch up with you all and to see what you all have been up too. I have been keeping my hands busy. Many many years ago I made this counted cross stitch cabin and had put it into a frame but grow tired of it in the fame, so I took it out and cross stitched the hearts and trimmed down the size and made it into a little pillow to sit on the demi chair in our guest room. I went to my fabric statch and found left over drop cloth fabric that I had used to sew the pleated chair cover, now they both match.
It's the perfect little chair to sit on to put your shoes and socks on.
For my first quilt of 2013 I have begun sewing a quilt I found in the Nov./Dec. 2012 Quilt Magazine. I fell in love with the cover quilt call Star Light Star Bright.
Each square is 16 inches and there is only two squares to the pattern along with sides of different fabrics.
This star has 37 pieces to it.
And this star has 21 pieces.
Here's a picture of three squares sewn together. It was raining today and very dark inside the house so this picture is looking a bit dull..but you can get the general idea of the pattern.
I of course changed the colors and fabric from what was
shown in the pattern. Red always stills my heart, so my
Star Light Star Bright quilt is going to be red.
So tell me what you have been creating.....
Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful week.
