What’s New For Winter? from Made By Marney

January is always a tough month for me…getting through 5 weeks of winter can be grueling. I stay in Wisconsin, and take advantage of the snow with some cross country skiing and snow shoeing. AND I decorate with paper pieced snowmen. They can stay in place until Valentine’s Day or beyond, so it’s an easy decorating theme.

Snowmen from PAPER PIECING ALL YEAR ROUND

These 2 cuties are from my newest book, PAPER PIECING ALL YEAR ROUND. With 24 block patterns and lots of cute projects, this book is a good bargain.

six more days . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I found a new and totally fitting way to help celebrate the season of Advent this year, compliments of Jo, over at Serendipitous Stitching!  She hosts a very sweet stitcher's Advent, and today is my day to share!

The idea is to share a hand-stitched ornament.  So of course, I'm sharing two.  LOL!  One is one I've had for years and years ... and it's more of a decoration than an ornament.  This beautiful wreath:
It's a canvas and yarn piece that was done by my Pop.  He was a terrific crafter and loved to work ...

Odds and Ends from Becca's Crazy Projects

This week has been a week of things but not so much doing things. My Kickstarter copy of Dwellings of Eldervale came. It isn't like I'll be having any friends over soon so I have plenty of time to learn the rules. 
I put the twelve blocks for my kit on the design wall. There will be so much piecing of sashing and cornerstones, and so on for this one. Full update next Monday. 
And my copy of Escape Pod's year fifteen anthology(affiliate link) arrived. I actually bought two copies of this one so someone might ...

Mosaic Crochet from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been working on this mosaic crochet blanket for a couple weeks. It might look a little wonky but blocking will fix that. 
The fabric is very nice and has a nice weight to it. This is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. I'm just changing colors a I come to the end of a ball of yarn. It's so nice to not have to think about it too much.

If you want to check out mosaic crochet I recommend watching some of Tinna's videos on YouTube. She is very patient and has so much to ...

Odds and Ends from Becca's Crazy Projects

I finished these fun socks made with a couple leftovers from other socks. These were made of leftover semi-solid black from the middle of a ball of Knit Picks Duos, colorway Rocket Ship. I didn't know if I had enough for the sock but it worked out great with two row stripes of each color. The other is a speckle leftover from an Into the Whirled, colorway Captain Tight Pants. These came out so much better than I could have hoped and I love them.
I worked on my Ard-ri shawl some more. The fabric for this one is ...

Quilting Book Review from Becca's Crazy Projects

It isn't often I add another book to my collection. It is even more rare for me to write a review about one of those books. Today I want to tell you about Step-by-Step Texture Quilting: 65 New Free-Motion & Walking-Foot Designs (affiliate link) by Christina Cameli. I first heard of Christina Cameli when I was still active on Craftsy and Bluprint. There I watched a couple of her classes and enjoyed both. I recently received a little nudge from Sam Hunter of Hunter Design Studio either via social media or from her subscriber list. I looked up this book ...
