I think she may be back!

Hey, I think my "Mojo" may be back. You see, I haven't really done much sewing or embroidery. I normally always do embroidery work at night during the week while watching TV and then do my piecing, etc. on the weekends. I have not done this in a while. I guess I had a "temporary" loss of interest. Not really loss of interest, but loss of "want to".
I am doing the Bunny Hill BOM (see side bar). I was doing GREAT and getting each month's block done. Then it happened, I fell behind. Well, my dear friend, Molly, has been working on hers and inspired me. I have got the other four blocks together and now I am stitching them down with the buttonhole stitch. I will add all the embellishments (ribbon, buttons, etc.) after the quilt is complete and quilted (those things tend to get in the way of a machine quilter).
Here is a 'not very good' picture of the first 3 blocks complete (except for embellishments) and the next four that are in the process of being stitched down. I'm pumped! My Mojo has returned! Thanks Molly!
I know what you are really thinking: 'wonder why she doesn't get that lint roller and clean all those threads off that design wall?' LOL! I've been thinking about it! Does that count?

Kim Has Done it AGAIN!

Kim over at Bitty Bits and Pieces has done it again! Is this not the cutest little bag you ever saw???? I just love it. It would make great little gift bags. I'm thinking of making some for my little granddaughter to use as gifts for her little friends for birthday parties!
Kim is going to give one of these bags to a lucky winner. Go on over and "put your name in the hat". I mean, you are NOT going to win because I AM, but it would look better if there were other names in the drawing....so, go on....it won't hurt you to not win this time.......(very big grin). Seriously, good luck to everyone!

This is a little wallhanging that I made called "Brrrrrrr". It is certainly not cold in TEXAS!!!!! But this was a 'cool' little project made from a charm pack that I really enjoyed. It was quick and easy. The pattern is by Pieces from my Heart (Sandy Gervais) and the fabric is Crazy Eight by Sandy Gervais. It measures approximately 21" x 25". Here is a close-up of the little snowman.The following is a picture of the entire wallhanging.

This is a kit that I purchased from The Fat Quarter Shop. It was one of their "Friday Specials". I immediately fell in love with it and HAD to order it. It came complete with fabric for the top, binding and backing. I just LOVE the Fat Quarter Shop (no affiliation -- just a happy customer). They have excellent customer service. Go check them out!
