Snowbound

I know...
another new project???  I just could not resist this one!
This is the first block for 
Snowbound,
designed by Pat Wys & BJ Laird.
You can find the pattern here.

Matter of fact, Silver Thimble Quilt Co. is running a Stitch Along, but I am doing my own thing.  This, along with It's a Grand Old Flag, will be my summer projects.  Both projects are a combination of cotton and wool applique.  

And I have good intentions of finishing up a few of those WIPS as well. My granddaughter's picnic quilt will be pieced in the next few days, so there will be one WIP I can take off the list soon!
I'll start piecing together Pennies from Heaven after the last meeting of the BOM group in June.  I am contemplating making it smaller than the original so it will fit on a wall.

It's a Grand Old Flag

You can find the pattern here.

I plan to do the applique in a combination of wool and cotton.  

We just returned from a refreshing week at Lake Tahoe. I had forgotten how beautiful the area is! The last time I was there was when I was in college.  I was a maid at the Blue View Lodge in King's Beach...oh, the memories!
As you can see, I was not the only one who enjoyed themselves.
Good times!

Something New and Something Old!

I'll start with the something new...  Peeps and Carrots, adapted from Carrot Sticks by the Pattern Basket. It was my 9 year old granddau...
