New and old...

I was in a wonderful Secret Santa Swap and we were not allowed to open our gifts till today...what a time trying not to open this gift since i know who it came from. PAWS from one of the sites I chat on sent me this adorable wall hanging mini..a great keepsake we have been friends for a couple of years now..so glad she got my name!! the cute little bows and buttons are a treasure..I even loved the wrapping paper and the cute card..thanks so much

I had "misplaced" my Aunt Millie's Garden blocks but found them and have been working on them. Got this one done and have started another one. They were on a roll and fell behind some material in my cupboard. Now they are all on the design wall and I just take one down and start workin' on it.. ain't lose'n them again!!
about half way done on my 3rd Love Letters block and am going to lay out 2 more...

and then look at this!! what did I do?? I joined a BOM with Stitchin Heaven Affairs from the Heart.. is this not adorable!! I haven't done the embroidery but have the applique of the first block done. This is a perfect choice for winters blues if people get them.. I don't I love winter and wish I could get snowed in for weeks!


Well Happy Holidays to all and a wonderful New Year...not sure when I will be posting again. All this applique is keeping my fingers busy and it is a slower process.. plus I have a quilt on the frame I have to get quilted!!

  3. Your "Affairs of the Heart" block came out fantastic. I have all my blocks done and am in the process of putting them together. I didn't like the sashing that came with my kit so I am n the hunt for a better match.

    Your Aunt Millie's block is perfect! I have that quilt on my wish list of things to make.

  12. I love the colors on Affairs from the heart block! Wonderful work! I hope when I get around to doing my first aplique quilt that mine turns out well. Jennie showed me some of the basics before she left. I have had a cat kit for quite some time but I havent started in on it. Maybe after I get my mondo Tetris quilt out of the way that will have to be my next project

  13. What a fun secret Santa gift! Very cute and festive. And it looks like you've been crazy productive... all of your blocks are looking amazing. I can't wait to see more of the Affairs from the Heart-- the block is so pretty and bright. It really does seem like a lovely antidote to winter blahs.

  20. Debra, your applique projects look terrific! Needleturn always impresses me (because I struggle with that technique).

    Do you have any information about the daisy background fabric in your Aunt Millie's block? I'm really taken with it and it brings back memories of the song from when I was little.
