Winter Sewing

Hi! Are you all ready to break up with winter yet?? 

Before I get going with this post, I wanted to thank you for all of your sweet comments on my last post, and to clarify my closing question. After reading your comments, it occurred to me that you thought I was asking you to tell me which of MY projects was your favorite, which sounds super conceited. Which I hope I'm not. What I was trying to ask was what is your favorite thing that YOU have made.  My writing skills need some help. Hope you'll share :)

So, I am so over winter. Cabin fever has set in and I have been trying to organize my sewing room. Which is actually kind of fun. Cute stacks of colorful fabrics.
Decorating this happy little cottage that my daughter found at the thrift shop. She painted it white, and I am having fun looking for cute little treasures to add to the shelves.
Pinning WIP to my wall. I have been so inspired by all the color, and have been starting lots of new projects.
An alphabet quilt. Have you been following the quilt along over at Moda? It's Spell It with Moda, and it has my name written all over it. Letters and quilting?? Count me in.

A teeny tiny great granny square. Lots more of these coming up....along with a give away coming very soon!

I've also been working on my Quilty Fun quilt. I am so happy with how this is coming along. Making one block a week has been so much fun, and so easy to keep up with. Only four more weeks to go.

I've also been working on my custom order using Country Girls. Love making prairie points. Especially pink, red and aqua ones!

Happy Weekend!!!


  1. Oh I love seeing your Quilty Fun blocks--I have been working on mine, too...but I am a bit behind right now! I am also totally and completely OVER winter!! I am ready for some springy weather and lots of sewing. :) I follow you on instagram and love all the inspiration you provide--thank you!!! I just got my Great Granny Squared book in the mail this week and am hoping to crank out a few blocks from it this weekend!! They really are fun!

  2. What scrumptious fabrics! And delightful projects. Yes, winter is going to stay a bit longer. Not much we can do about that.

  3. Yes, soooo over winter and wishing Spring will arrive soon! Love all your pretty projects too :-)
    Happy weekend!

  4. You have been a busy lady. Everything you make always looks so 'happy', and reading your blog is so inspiring.

  5. The little shadow box is so cute!
    I bet it *is* fun organizing your sewing room.
    Thanks for the shot of color!
    All this white *is* pretty but i'm a color girl.

  6. Hi Debbie, What a fun post, so much colors and fun projects. Love the cottage shadow box your daughter found......especially love the tiny sewing notions.
    Yes should be over, only we have another storm coming Monday : (
    Enjoy your weekend, xoRobin

  7. Am I over winter? Oh goodness, WEEKS ago. It was -12 here this morning. I immediately turned the calendar to March, I refuse to acknowledge one more day of February. I love your projects, the cottage shelf is perfect! I know you'll end up making it cuter than ever, and all your projects just make me happy:>) I'm in the process of cleaning up my "studio" (It's the other end of my bedroom, lol) and it is right next to two sunny south facing windows so if I can keep from looking outside, and I can, I can just bask in the sunshine as I work.

  8. Gorgeous colourful pictures today! Love the little cottage shelves your daughter found.....such fun to arrange...and rearrange! Your projects all look so pretty. Wishing you a happy weekend......and hope spring comes soon!
