Winter Days

January should be a month that goes by slowly… but this January has simply flown by.

I’m wanting snowed in days, soup and warm bread days, stitchy days… slow days.

I’m happy to have gotten in a little time at my sewing machine at least.  Phew.  It feels so good.

I’ve started playing with a new quilt…  which will probably be as big as when my fabrics run out… and is a make it up as I go along kind of quilt.  Hurray for nine patches and for the sashing… a Michael Miller gingham in a delightfully sour green.

I’ve made more Wide Open Zippered Pouches.  They are just so darn fun to make… and so often requested.

This one is for Lily’s embroidery.  I let the girls pick their fabrics.

Emma loves this Lecien Old New fabric… she keeps picking it out for whatever I’m sewing for her.

And speaking of Lecien, I was just told that it is pronounced “Lou shin.”  Is that correct?  I’ve always called it “Lee shin.”

Got to run, the girls are putting on Sherlock and my sewing machine is calling.

    Very pretty. I love the fabrics. I am so happy to see you “post” again. You were so missed! My prayers to you and yours.

  • I love your gingham quilt. The pattern is perfect for those fabrics and I love the colors in it. I hope you have enough fabric to make it into a bed size. Looks like the perfect spring quilt.

    I have been faithfully checking your site regularly hoping to see a new post but you seem to have given up your blog. I am hoping all is well with you and your family but understand when things must end. Best wishes….

    I check every so often to see if you’re back. And to look at the lemon logo, which is so perfect. Thanks for the time you gave us!
