Short and Sweet

Nothing like a new book full of inspiration,
and some free time
to get the creative juices going again.
My version of Kim Diehl's Short and Sweet from her new book,
Simple Charm.

This is what it should look like when I finish.

I did resew Primitive Pumpkins, 
and with the help of a my friend,
now have all the wools collected for the applique.

So between the two projects,
there will be a lot of button hole stitching going on around here.
In addition,
I start my BOM, Pennies from Heaven, tomorrow.
Wool, wool, glorious wool!

  12. Love your version of Short and Sweet. You sure are speedy! There isn't a project in that book that I wouldn't love to make. Another great book from Kim!

  13. Great choice of projects and you always choose such wonderful colours. That's giving my creative juices a bit of a nudge!

  14. It's going to be beautiful! Lovely! I'm glad to hear that you got your last project worked out. I recently had a similar experience and it took me awhile to get it worked out. I'm glad you are back on track :-) Sometimes I have moments where I need to remind myself that this quilting stuff is supposed to be fun LOL!!


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Love any comments you wish to share.
