Heritage Happenings...

Christmas is coming...which was certainly evident at Heritage yesterday! There were tons of Christmas projects being worked on....Here's a small sampling~
 Glynis' ornament...a wool tree ornament, which she reduced in size!  REALLY sweet!
 And I love Sandy's Buttermilk Basin "Let it Snow' BOM for this month !  So pretty on the green flannel background fabric!
 Lovely gifts being made by JoAnne...
This gorgeous flower quilt makes me want to start collecting flowery prints!  So pretty and fresh...and ready for Spring!

 And a close-up...


 Carol just finished her Santa Redwork Pillow...and it is gorgeous!  LOVED the quilting on this baby!


 Sandy finished her grand-daughter's I Spy Quilt!  Love the design of this quilt...so fresh and clean looking with the white sashing around the I Spy prints...
 

 LOVE the label...how SWEET is this!!  Grandma and grand-daughter's hand prints stitched right onto the label.  Little Taylor is going to treasure this quilt FOREVER!



'Just Judy' made this wonderful charity Quilt...so pretty and fresh!  Some little girl is going to be tickled PINK!

 And Aude's been very busy too!  Love her two scrap-happy quilts...
 The border just kicks this one out of the ballpark!
 And I love how the border on this one makes her blocks appear to float and dance!

                                         
Aude outdid herself...

So there you have it!  There were more projects shown but for some reason my pics were blurry!  DARN!

The other news is that I have decided to take a break from Blogging.  Hope you understand...just need time to recharge the ol'batteries!

Wishing you all the best!  Big blogger's hug being sent your way...and happy stitching!~P

UFO...UFO...UFO...


 Another UFO bites the dust....

This is a Jan Patek Pattern called...'Snow Guys'...and these 'Guys' have wanted their freedom for a few years now...
 I know these two snowmen are a bit scary but they grow on you...they really do!
 The backing is a soft blue and mottled, grey, striped homespun....(...wish I had more of this fabric...)

 What can I say...these snowmen grow on you...a face only a mother could love!  This is Blake...

...and this is Jake..and both are flakes. I figured if I gave them names maybe they wouldn't look so sinister...


And yes their eyes follow you around the house... wherever you go...

 Jake and Blake may end up getting rolled and put into a basket...or not...they are kind'a cute...in a sick kind'a way...
Speaking of which, it's Election day down in the States...and I am nervous!  I have never been nervous about any election before...EVER....and it isn't even my country! ( The border is just across the water...I can practically see Seattle from my kitchen window...:o) ...insert a nervous laugh here... haha)  I won't lie...it's been an entertain year and a half, with more twists and turns than 'House of Cards'...BUT...it's serious business this year, so I want to reminder all those quilters 'out there' to put your needle and thread down and take time to go and VOTE...it's an important one!   The world is watching...or at least I am...as I sit by my kitchen window...

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!~P
