I'm Heading Off On An Adventure

Traveling is about discovery.

It's a opportunity to learn more about the world
around you and even some about yourself.

I'm looking forward to some new 

as I begin an exciting adventure.

I bet you might be able
to guess where!
Until Next Time-

Wool Isn't Just for Winter

Here in Colorado
spring is fast approaching.
It's time to put away the wool
sweaters and socks.

 But wait!
Wool isn't just for winter.

How about all those spring lambs?
Aren't they the real spring woolies?

I realized as I was getting out a few spring and Easter
decorations that most of my little spring penny rugs
are made from wool.

Today I'm sharing a
Smilebox featuring many of 
the wool penny projects
that I've made in the past.

The patterns have come from a variety of sources.
Many of them were from different Need'l Love books,
individual patterns or Primitive Quilts Magazine.

Always a Quilty Buddy

It's always hard to say good-bye
to friends that have been 
 Quilty Buddies.

It may not have been a friendship 
for many years, but we all 
know about the threads that bind quilters together.

Our friend, Jenine, is opening
another chapter of her life in Austin, TX.
We've loved getting to know her over
the past couple of years.

I had been gifted a 
basket full of red and white fat quarters 
in February
24" x 24"

and I used this wonderful collection of fabrics
from one group of quilting friends,
to stitch this sweet and easy heart quilt for a Quilty Buddy.
It seemed the perfect way to pass
the meaning of  friendship forward.

I made the the hst's to finish at 2"
and made 4" four patches set on point.
Any size patches would work.  You
could customize them to your particular project.

It was fun to
machine quilt heart motifs in the 
open spaces.  It seemed to add another layer
of sharing, caring and friendship.

This would be a simple and sweet
pattern to use for a quick baby quilt.

A going away gift doesn't have to be

big to let someone know
that they will be missed.  It
just has to be something from your heart.

Until Next Time-
