It's A Wrap from From the Strawberry Patch...

... and just like that, another Christmas is history. 2019 is looming just around the corner. I can finally post about a few things that I have been stitching. Using this pattern by Atkinson Designs I managed to make up quite a few batches of these zippered pouches that will be good for toting all sorts of goodies and whatnots. For the most part, I constructed them in sets of threes to give as

I wanted to shine a light on all of those who take the time to make a handmade quilt for those who could really benefit from it. I can deeply relate to this topic because I had some family members that were affected by “Hurricane Irma!” Just seeing everyone in my community get together and help one another was very inspiring ...

First up, I did some pattern testing for Unicornhearts of this snake block.   I made this little wall hanging to mimic my daughter's snake
