A Girl and her Machine

Although I enjoy handwork, my first love is piecing with my machine...
especially small scale piecing!
Here is the beginning of a lifetime project, 
Sunrise Scraps by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.
When I saw this quilt last January at Road to California, I knew I had to commit to making it. 
I fell in love with all things she designs.

Just finished this little handful of scraps called Olivia.

I still continue to do handwork and wool applique.
Working on Father Christmas by 1894 Cottonwood House.

Finished my second block of Solstice Dreams
and embellished the first block of Crimson Tweed.

My friend, Deb and I are working together on a shoppe sample for a BOM starting in January.
Garden Whimsy by Norma Whaley of Timeless Traditions.

As usual, I have too many irons in the fire.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
Among other things, I am thankful for my machine and the joy it brings me.
Now to the business of cooking a feast for my family!

From One Extreme to Another!
