Love is

Rhonda found this embroidery quilt online at Quilt Happy, Quilt Often.

Fabric is Astor Manor by 3 Sisters.

I'm off to a weekend sewing retreat or I would be quilting this this weekend!

Good news and Bad news

The good news is I am really loving embroidery. I finished up block 3 of the Birdie Stitches BOM.

I added some shamrocks to mine and I really like how well it turned out.

The bad news? I slipped last week and tore the tendons and ligaments in my left knee. As a result, not a lot of quilting has been happening. A lot of nothing has been happening for me; it's just too painful to get around. I did go in and see my chiropractor yesterday and my knee is feeling better today; that's a bit of good news in with the bad.

I did manage to get this lovely quilt done for Cheryl of Country Quilts.

Isn't it lovely?

Quilted with a simple meander.

Snowed In.

We got a late winter surprise on the weekend; more snow! It gave me the perfect excuse to stay inside and play.

And play I did!

Rhonda showed me these adorable table runners and I knew I had to make some too.

And I could stop at just one.

They match my fabric wreath so nicely!

Such great projects for using up scaps.
