Getting Closer To Catching Up....

I am getting closer to
catching up with
Brooke Nolan Advent Animals.
These cross-stitch patterns
are free of charge. 

I love the sweet Sophie squirrel
and her antlers just make
me laugh.  

Or maybe share a spot of tea with
Little Miss Hattie.
She is really
close to being all finished
up, so I thought she
needed to be shown off.
Brooke has released 13 of the 25
little minis. 
I am going to work on number 7,
Miss Sheila the Sheep.
I think she will be donning
a crochet hook instead of knitting.
Ohhh, but I guess you will
have to wait and see.

Tree Bird Hop

Hello all and welcome to my
stop on the Tree Bird Hop!!

I was really unsure on just
what to create with the cute
little birdie fabric.

And then I had a bit of inspiration.
I decided to go BIG!!
Like the biggest quilt that I have
EVER made.
It is not yet quilted but,
I am all done piecing it.
It is around 100" x 110"
with over 1000 pieces and
42 blocks.
The bird fabric is from
Elizabeth's Studios  and it is just beautiful.
I used a variety of blue tones
of Kona and AMB Clothwork Solids and
I pieced it with my favorite thread, Aurifil.
I do believe that I will
have to hand quilt it
because of the size.

Thanks to Madame Samm for all you do
 and to Lana at It Seams to be Sew for cheering this hop!
Go and check out the
other great hoppers

 P.S. Stay tuned for a HUGE giveaway that
will be coming very soon.

My Lacy Pillow and My New Cricut

 So what do you do when
you can't sleep at night?
Well, some people might drink some
warm milk.
Not me, I go ahead and get up
and quilt.
That was me last night.
I whipped up this beauty in
just a couple of hours.
Believe it or not is an applique.
Like a pretty fabric doily.
Simple and elegant
So, how did I do it?
I played with my new Cricut Explore machine.
It cuts FABRIC!!!
I have all these little
fabric ideas dancing through my
I had a old machine that I have
used years for paper,
but I really couldn't resist this.
It did a pretty good job
on the two little doilies that
I placed on the corner.
I know that there is no
way that I could have cut that with
OHHHHHH, the possibilities.
So, have any of you tried this machine?
Do you have any questions on how it works?
I can't wait to play with it some more.

Eclectic Elements Blog Hop

 Welcome to my
stop on the Eclectic Elements Blog Hop.
I absolutely love the work that
Tim Holtz does. 
All the fun scrap booking elements
and of course this great fabric.
Since the fabric I found,
 definitely looks guyish,
I decided to make
a shaving travel bag.

Love both prints.
A fun and functional project.
(I am still working on the pattern)

I also bought myself an Accuquilt
Isosceles Triangle die
and it showed up a few days ago.

I didn't have time to finish up a
whole project,
but I was totally enjoying
playing with the fabrics and
the new die.
Accuquilt does have a bunch of
their dies on sale.

Not sure exactly what the plan
is for this.
I might have to whip up a
fun pillow for one of my fellas.
Or it might end up as a lap quit.
Who knows..
Go check out the other hoppers.
