A little this and a little that!

We have returned to the cabin and I have worked on a few new projects.
This is a pattern from 1894 Cottonwood House called 'Charmed.'
I love the rusted jingle bells on his crocked little mouth.
My husband made the bread board for me to mount it on.  I just need to stain it.

The first block of Raven, from Blackbird Designs. 

Another stocking from Kim Diehl's book.

And lastly,
Hospitality door hanger, again from Kim's book.

Not much else since these two precious granddaughters came with me.

Therefore, we have been playing at the river, enjoying a good old fashioned 4th of July celebration and camping in our new camper, Rockie.

And finally,
our newest family member.

Next on my list...
the tree skirt from Kim's book.
My daughter and I are also making the girls quilts for the camper.
Hope you are enjoying your summer!  I know I am.


  1. Welcome back to Colorado. You've been busy and congratulations on a new grand baby. Love your color choices on your Raven blocks.

  2. Your pictures are just wonderful and your new grand baby (!!!!) is just beautiful. Congratulations!! I was wondering if you could let me know if you are doing the starch method of appliqué on 'Raven' and if so, HOW did you get your star points so perfect? I'm working on a Jan Patek appliqué block that has stars and I just can't seem to get the star points to look like points....very frustrating. Thanks for any help/suggestions you may have!
    PS I love the picture of your 'older' granddaughter holding her baby sister!! Precious.

  3. Super cute projects and congratulations on the new baby!

  4. Congratulations on the new baby!!! Such a precious picture oldest granddaughter holding her little sister . I really love all of your projects especially the pumpkin on the cutting board :-D

  5. Hi Cheryl, The grandchildren are adorable! Love your projects too!

  6. Are you working from a kit for the Blackbird Designs quilt? I have a friend who was looking for a kit but could not find one. It is a wonderful design. Several bloggers have commented on the design so I think we will be seeing blocks on other blogs.

  7. Sounds like you are enjoying all the things you love during your holidays. Welcome to the new family member.

  8. Love seeing your projects. Hope you'll post again soon.

  9. Love all your projects and precious grandchildren!!!

    I'm sure you are loving Colorado!!!

    Hug's, Carolyn
