Yo-Yo puppy

Hello there, I started this little guy a year ago and had all the Yo-Yos done and hid in my deluge of quilting supplies.  I finally took the time to make the head and I think he is adorable.  I don't think I would give this to a small child, there was far too much work put into it.  45 Yo-Yos and something about a gusset on the head and actually making the pattern pieces form a head?... that was hard.

I am excited for Thanksgiving.  I have so many blessings to be thankful for: my family, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a wonderful husband who loves me, 3 sons who make me laugh and make me proud to be there mom, good health, a warm home, a fridge with adequate amounts of Diet Coke and Dove Peppermint Bark hidden in my sewing room. 

Wishing everyone a safe, Happy Thanksgiving.  The END.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Last night I finished the binding on this fun quilt.  I love it! 

I think this is my favorite block of stitching,  love her apron and the candy cane line.

This block reminds me of being hit in the eye by a snowball thrown by a very mean boy at Greenwood Elementary school during lunch recess in the third grade.  As you can tell the scene will forever be crystal clear in my mind.

I loved adding the satin to a few of the pieced blocks.

Brr... snow everywhere this morning,  worked out perfect for pics of the quilt. 
Did you know that birds eat these Pyrocantha berries in the winter and they get a little drunk from them?  You learn something new every day.

I love my MaryJane.  I know she would love to quilt with me if she could.  Have a wonderful Monday!
