A Little Quilting Buzz from Creatin' in the Sticks

 The past week was such fun with the
Shades of Blue Sew It Show It Challenge
and
I really enjoyed hosting.

If you missed it, be sure to click the link and check out all the wonderful blues!

As I was visiting the posts, new activities were presented
and
I decided to jump on board with a few.


I've never participated in a round-robin, have you?
This one is unique in that you do all the stitching.
It's a stay-at-home round-robin.
Quilting Gail has all the info HERE.


I missed the round where you show your center block ...

RSC Week #3 - Not much Done... from Grandma's Red Needle

 The Blue Month continues

Not much has been done on the blues since I'm still waiting for 'Nina' to return from the Spa. It has been one week now, I just have to practice patience! UGH!
Update Saturday: 'Nina' has got the green light to return home! YEAH!

While waiting...  


...another blue UFO popped up while I was looking for something else!
I had completely forgotten this one. I know why it was put aside; the backing intended for it was used on two placemats (custom order) and I didn't bother ...

RSC - Blues from Grandma's Red Needle

 I'm joining RSC hosted by Angela for the very first time. 


RSC; Rainbow Scrap Challenge, Angela chooses a color every month. For January, the color is dark and bright blues.

I've been pondering what to work on where I can use blues. I've been thinking something new, but with all the UFO's I want to finish this year, I decided to do some progress on my 'blue' UFO's.

I've got the Blues. 
I've always had the pattern together with the fabrics and blocks, 'of course' now it is nowhere to ...

Moda Marbles - just sitting there... from Grandma's Red Needle

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas together with family or friends. We had friends over for dinner on Christmas Eve, which was really nice. Sunday was quiet, slept in and did some sewing in the evening. 

We all (at least us quilters) know how important it is to always have the right colors in our stash, don't we?! ...and when we need that specific color, nothing matches! Right?! Since it is unlikely I'd use up those Moda Marbles any time soon, I've been pondering what to do with them. The first idea, as you can ...

Back in Blogland! from Grandma's Red Needle

 Hello! Do you remember me?! I can't believe my last post was dated April 18! Where did those days, weeks & months go?! I'm sure someone has stolen them!!! 

Where do I start? You may wonder why I fell off blogland - again!? No particular reason; except it became a bit overwhelming and I needed a break. I lost the quilting mojo but it picked up when I started making Christmas items for my shop. UFO's has been on hold. At least I haven't made any new! Haha! Kidding!!! Of course I have new UFO's! Out of ...

Tree Skirts for the Holidays from Made By Marney

As I started putting up my Christmas decorations, I realized I have plenty of Christmas tree skirts to choose from. They are all handmade and, of course, all paper pieced.

BEAR-Y CHRISTMAS TREE SKIRT

Any tree skirt pattern can be created as a table topper instead, just don’t cut the hole in the center. The BEARY-Y CHRISTMAS TREE SKIRT would also make a super cute table centerpiece.

When I am decorating using a more farmhouse look, I use this tree skirt.

RED TRUCK TREE SKIRT

LITTLE RED TRUCK TREE SKIRT is so easy! Consider using fabric photos to paper ...
