Showing my wings, maybe not?


Morning All,

As I was writing my title for this hop I found a big blunder.   But first these are the fabric 
scraps I picked out.  Love my scraps.






I haven't made any thing for my home for about three or four years.  While I was originally going to make a baby quilt with these appliques , but I had to switch to these kitchen hand towels because of shoulder pain.
It seem I may have torn my rotator cup,  I have been referred to an orthopedic surgeon on the 25th of this month. While I can't handle using the cutter and can use the scissors.  Enough of that.  

I'm cutting cost at home and we use way too many paper towels,  So I'm using white hand towels 
from when I closed my shop ( hair and tanning salon) for just drying hands in kitchen.  Hubby hasn't caught on to that part yet.  so  there are some stains.  The bright colors pull your eyes away from those and covers a few.








These are totally scrapy made and I have nine more to go at this time,  who knows for sure.  
The top one is almost finished  I have to embroider stilts legs and eyes.  
I will share as I finish them this summer

Oh yes the blunder out of all the birds only one had wings.  back  to the drawing board. 8-)

Thanks to Carol at https://www.justletmequilt.com/ For heading up this cute hop.
be sure to visit the participating ladies.

Where Flowers Bloom/ Second edit


Thank you Carla for hosting this hop.


Flowers can bloom in the strangest places.
For instance.

Ok right off the bat I have had to edit my hop day post.  I have now been bitten by the blogger bug.  UGH!
I will have to reply on my blog to all your much appreciated comments.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

I need to add Amy's BOM link, some have asked where it was.
http://sewincrediblycrazy.blogspot.com/2015/12/exciting-news-in-our-garden-hop.html

On to the original post.

I decided to finish a couple of UFO blocks and design my own small quilt.
Well that didn't exactly happen.  But close. 
The blocks turned out pretty good and are from a BOM  I was in a couple of years ago.









This is the biggest mistake in the block below,  I did not have a pattern and just used a block I found on line  I can't believe I did notice.  It is almost 1/4 inch larger than the others.  Was suppose to be a 12 inch block, still haven't figured out what I did wrong.  You can see I tried to trim it.
and it is still to large and lost its points.


And as you can see the HST boarders is way off too.  Instead of trying to halve way fix it, I have decided to replace the block and and remake the  boarders.



When I rework this , I'll put a darker lavender binding on it.  I think it will be cute when finished.  So I'm going to take a break from it for a couple days and work on some Christmas projects.



I'm really into my plushies right now.  Trying to stay away from stress and deadlines.
And these keep me happily sewing in between quilts. I don't want to get out of the habit of finishing projects.

Don't forget to visit every one in today's hop. 

Hoping I put a smile on your face today.
Be sure to visit the others on this hop for your flower fix.

Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop


Hello All,
Yep, today is my day to share my star.  I went a little differently than most of the 
ladies.  Partly because of time as I had some health issues after I ask to be part of
this hop.   And Carol at  http://www.justletmequilt.com being the gracious lady that she is agreed that I could join in.  And secondly  I thought you might want to see something a little different and get a Christmas gift idea early in the year.  Most of you know I'm married to Santa so it's Christmas here  year around.  Notice the candy canes in the pocket.  He never leaves home without them.


Now onto the hop, yes I dared to share Christmas deco.  But if you look closely most patches have stars in them.




the backing is pine comes, I still need to fluff the lumps out.


Now we will see if your paying attention.  I will be giving away the pattern and fabric for this little stocking.



Just make sure I have your email address, add it to your comment if necessary.


Mention your preferred color for stocking, star and heart.


and if you need floss.


I love the little snowflake.  And just so you can see just how small this really is
just one more photo.


I will draw for the pattern on the last day of the hop and notify the winner by email and on my blog that day.
Remember to visit the other ladies and enjoy yourself browsing.
