Our little neck of the woods had a rain storm yesterday , lots and lots of heavy rain fall which eventually turned to snow overnight and everything in sight is now ice . We have a couple of lovely ice rinks in the field , makes me wish I could go skating ;-0
Now for a little sewing report , first off my friend Annette of In Stitches and Seams was kind enough to send me a pattern for this sweet candle mat and I finally got around to making it .It was fun to sew and I am pleased with how it has turned out .
I must tell you that Annette of In Stitches and Seams is having an anniversary giveaway with many wonderful prizes and even some of her patterns so be sure to head on over to visit with her , you will love her work and be sure to sign up to follow her , you don't want to miss out on any future postings .
Our quilt guild is having a challenge this year , it is our tenth anniversary so we are challenged to make something with ten , it can be ten of anything , ten blocks , well ten of whatever your little old heart desires so after much thought I came up with a plan . I am making a banner for my sewing room , I have made these ten spools and will then add some lettering, haven't quite decided on the title of my room just yet , Sheila's Quilt World or just Sheila's Studio but for now my spools are ready and waiting for me to sew them together and on to plan B.
As you know I am taking part in building houses with Terry of Terry's Treasures and this month is orange and I made two blocks , the required number each month but I just was not happy with the real orange block so have made a third block to replace the bright orange block and I like this much better .
I know this post is getting a little long but I just want to close off with this sunset from Friday evening , the calm before the storm I guess , it was magnificent .
Annette and sign up for her great giveaway .
