Cozy Cottage

Hi there peoples!  How was your week?  I had a busy happy sewing week.  I dropped some quilts off to be quilted over the weekend and it was a huge load off my mind.  For now anyway. 

Cozy Cottage
Did you order a Cozy Cottage Calendar?  I couldn't resist, I love all the photos and it's just the right set of colors each month.  I still use the old fashioned kitchen calendar method of organizing the family.  Not that anyone else has paid much attention to it over the years, but I keep track of birthdays and appointments and that kind of thing. I've saved all the old calendars and often have to refer back to them for information.  When I was working my first job out of college  I made the mistake of tossing my work calendar at the first of the year, which was basically a work felony.  YIKES.  WORK JAIL.
But as usual I digress.  I wasn't paying attention when I was cutting and cut out the 4 inch cottage block instead of the 8 inch.  I couldn't let it go to waste, so I stitched it up. Now I want to make a bunch of them. They're so cute and tiny. Will I actually do it? Who knows.
Hope you have a fun weekend everybody. xo

I love tiny blocks. But usually I'm not cutting precise enough and they go off on me. Yours is darling.

Finished the pennants fro Ahana's room and we hung them up on Sunday. Now I am home and trying to ignore the beastly tee shirt quilt I committed to make...hmm probably time to make some pincushions ahead of the holiday rush.
And your house is adorable...a couple more like 3 and you could have the cutest pillow!

and your comment about the work calendar made me laugh....when I retired in April I had the last 10 yrs of paper calendars to say nothing of the desktop calendar everyone had access too. It was so freeing to throw them away!!
