New Year, New Projects

       I put my forced indoor confinement, due to the frigidly cold weather, to good use. I've fallen head over heals in love with Lakeside Linen's Legacy 50 ct, unevenweave linen and Tudor Silks. It's an absolute pleasure to stitch with the Tudor Silks and I love the look of the stitching on the high count linen.

Margaret, Days of a Sampler Lover, and I plan to use the PLL design for the top and front panels of our Cabinet of Curiosities.

      I've also been working on a couple of quilting projects. First up is another mini quilt from the Fresh Mini Quilt Club. The white mirror ball fabric just adds that bit of frosty sparkle to the quilt.

Owen's Kiss Kiss Quilt

      While searching for fabrics for another project I came across a tote bag that contained fabrics I had bought to make a quilt for Owen's throne chair. After seeing Michele's, Cozy Egg, mini Kiss Kiss quilt I knew that would be the perfect pattern for Owen's quilt. Thank you Tula Pink for pdf patterns. When you're ready to make a quilt it's so nice to be able to instantly download the pattern.
