Bee Happy

Morning friends! How are you?  Knee deep in holiday plans?  Chaos? Fun? Everything going as planned?  Low key here.  Our tree is up, Bret put it together and Frankie put all the ornaments on it and it looks better than it has in years.  We went through our boxes of ornaments and she pulled out all hers, and we edited out some of the things we didn't love anymore and our tree looks better for the update.  I love Christmas lights and I love that with this fake tree I can have the lights on whenever I want for as long as I want.


Finished this bee FINALLY .  I'm not great at embroidery but I had a lot of fun doing it.  I was inspired by Bits of Stitching, seen originally on IG but here's her post on her blog. You can find the pattern at Colonial Patterns here.
Frankie has been having some fun making wreaths, you probably saw some already if you follow me on IG, I love them so much.

Ok,  crossing my fingers everything is going well for you friends! xo

Sew Time

Morning!  There's no time like SEW TIME around here.  And I do mean no time.  Or almost no time.  When Margot released her Potted Pines block pattern, I tried to resist it, knowing I'd have no time to devote to making a potted pines quilt.. but resistance was futile.

I indulged myself in making one block.  That's all I'll get to this year I'm afraid, but already I'm thinking maybe pink and aqua? Kind of a vintage Christmas feel?  Or maybe black pots and green with an English topiary garden feel.  I'm not sure.  But thinking about sewing is almost as good as sewing to me. 
I hope the holiday season is treating you well. There's always so much to be grateful for this time of year, as in all times of year. xop

Your long lost pal

Good morning friends!  It's been so long since I stopped in here.  I've missed visiting with you of course, but family first, right?  So that's what I'm up to these days. 
I've had this baby quilt ready for it's applique for quite a while, I mean face it, I'm a procrastinator of the highest order.  But yesterday sweet little "A" was born a couple of weeks early  so I needed to kick it into high gear.  I'm ready for machine quilting later today. 

A week or so ago  Roseann's Facebook memory reminded me of my Aurifil Christmas ornament. You can download this little embroidery design here if you want a fun small project to work on!  I think the little covered button makes it!
Today after my visit with mom I'm headed next door to do a little dog-baby-sitting.. or is it baby-dog-sitting.  Either way Pyper is one adorable pooch and I'm happy to check in on her.  There's nothing like a puppy smooch to cure what ails you.
Hope the holiday season is treating you well friends.  xoxo
