Thawing out...

Sorry for the month long hiatus!! I need a new laptop and my desktop is in a part of the house that has been just too cold this winter. So I just kept close to the fire and kept stitching! Lots of projects going on and I am being very good at finishing...must cut down on my WIPS!!
I designed this bag yesterday for my La Passacalglia quilt from Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein. It's an  English paper peicing project. I found this cute fabric at Jo Ann's. 
It's got a built in needle book and pockets for your supplies...I have more that I want to add too...this is like a "sketch" of what I have in my minds eye. So this is still a work in progress. I need to decide on some quilting.
I also crocheted a pillow cover this is the start of it...

I made some of my Easter bread last week...

I designed another "Spirit Animal" pillow for my nephew Sebastian's second birthday... These will be able to purchase for custom order on Etsy. I am now working on a bear cub! 

Crocheted some hot pads...
Made this adorable mug rug from Amy Sinabaldi's new book Sweetly Stitched Handmades... It is such a beautiful book and the projects are so well written.
Yes, these are all iPhone 6 photos...I have better photos but again that would require leaving the fire!!! That's just how cold it's been and still is...come on spring really?!
I will expand on these projects more and if I am brave enough I may write up a tutorial for my sewing bag...yikes! 
I am also totally into Instagram these days so if you want to find me that's where I am! 
I am off this weekend to Florida for a few days... Of course it's like in the 90's!!! So we are going from freezing and rainy to sweltering...hey anything for a date with a mouse ;-)! Yes... we are headed to Walt Disney World...we are very excited and I am actually looking forward to some sunshine!
I hope you all had a great holiday week...and the weather is warming up for you!
Be well!
