Guernsey Wrap 2

Started my second Guernsey Wrap Sunday.  Making this one wider than the pattern calls for. Cast on 94 stitches.  One of the ladies in the KAL is doing hers in a rich chocholate brown.  It's turning out really pretty. Can't wait to see everybody's when they are done....and then what.....somebody might need to pick out another group project??

Frosty Mugs Table Runner

I started this last winter.  It was snowing all day yesterday. I made a big pot of potato soup for dinner (with our potatoes but not the purple ones).  After dinner, we watched the Bean Pot Championship. I basically listened to it and I finished this one :).   The bird is my favorite part.  The pattern is by Threads That Bind and it is named Frosty Mugs (2012). 

Here is a link to their website and the pattern:

I rarely do fusible applique so I was out of practice and accidentally reversed the pattern. Added the mini snow balls willynilly.  I bought it as a kit but finished it differently.  Instead of doing it like they did, I just bound it with stash fabric cotton. 

I'm happy with the results.  I like their patterns. Really cute stuff.  Next up I think will be one of their sheep patterns. 





Thimbleberries Scrap Quilt

Made this one for my sister in law.  The pattern name is Tiny Dancer by Jaybird Quilts.  It requires a special ruler.  You can probably find the pattern and the ruler in any quilt store. They all seem to be carrying them.  I used Thimbleberries fabrics for this one.  The pointy binding is slow moving but not difficult.
