Christmas In July Blog Hop from Life in the Scrapatch


Merry Christmas in July Blog Hop! 

I have been having a very wonderful month of July.
It feels like Christmas ... except maybe for the hot summer sun.

I have been swapping gifts:


I made this clowder of kitties for a
Christmas Kitty in July Swap
with a group of online quilty friends.


Here are the kitty swap blocks I  recently received in return.

This cat block pattern is from

The Cat's Meow by Janet Kime


These blocks were hand delivered to me by my friends,
Cherie, Debbieann and Vanessa,
at the Quilt Odyssey show in Pennsylvania
where I went ...

Pure and Simple Things from Pieced Brain


Photograph by Brent Kane and Adam Albright for Martingale. Used with permission.
I woke up and immediately found myself in a contemplative state, pondering my numerous blessings, sending prayers to friends who are going through an arduous journey of sickness, and getting energized for my day. In the end, I realized as the beautiful artwork above depicts, that life is really good.

And so, I give thanks for the many freedoms I enjoy, to the opportunity to learn new things (I am a learning junky), and for being able to use my talents in the service of the highest good ...

Free Block of the Month 10—Sweet Pea from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

It's hard to believe that we are already on Block 10 of this series! My husband and I (Kara) just passed our one year anniversary of being in Germany; however,  since we didn't move into our house until July, I am still discovering new flora and fauna on our walks. One of my latest finds were sweet peas growing wild.











At first, I just saw one patch and thought that maybe they were a bit of someone's garden that the birds or wind brought by, but then I started seeing them everywhere. They have a lovely fragrance ...

Guess Who's One! from Quilt Doodle Doodles


Well, we had a special birthday over the weekend. Someone special turned one years old. Our sweet Belvedere is now one... I even baked him a birthday pup cake. My hubby just shook his head and smiled. Yes, I have turned into the crazy dog lady in my neighborhood... I admit it. Belvedere has me totally wrapped around his little paw, and he knows it.  Now I didn't have the full blown puppy birthday party with puppy party hats... so I'm not totally off the edge or lost the cheese off my cracker... I have to admit it ...

"In the Garden"—Hydrangea from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

The gardens are bursting forth with blooms as the first day of summer rapidly approaches. This month's block in our In the Garden BOM series is the Hydrangea. I (Teri) have always loved the bountiful blooms of a hydrangea, and I am particularly partial to the blue/purple ones. I was excited to create these flowers, capturing their dimensional beauty.

We will be creating the mophead or French variety of hydrangea, the most common type. It has a large, rounded flower head that is composed of many single blossoms. I cut my purple wool into a pile of one-inch ...

June's Block Done in Wool.... from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

  


I have been enjoying working with wool for my second version of this year's BOM. I've been having Snow Much Fun! This month's block is a skiing snowman. As some of you may know, I live very close to Buck Hill Ski Resort. My boys spent a lot of time there skiing and snowboarding. I always knew winter was right around the corner as soon as the snow making machines were put in place on the slopes. When it's cold enough, snow is being made and if the wind is just right it will snow in ...

A Cottage Garden from Pieced Brain


This is about the time of the year when I begin my Christmas list, a list of people to whom I would like to handmake a small project. It is so fun to rest my feet up in the evening with needle and thread and a good audiobook playing, deadening the sounds of my 18-year-old playing video games with virtual friends in the basement (although, I do enjoy his belly laughs!).

A Cottage Garden - Stitch and Enjoy a Bounty of Beautiful Blossoms by Kathy Cardiff, published by Martingale, has 11 wool applique' ideas and is at the top of my ...

Throwback Thursday and a Free Pattern from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Sometimes it's fun to take a look at the past and remember the different steps in a journey. The first pattern we listed on our website, Marcia's Flowers, came about through the inspiration of a friend's jacket. From that same inspiration, we also created a needle book that we gave to the owner of the inspirational jacket. This Friday, I (Kara) am going to be teaching a class in Germany, using that same needle book pattern. I could never have imagined, when stitching the first needle book, that two years later, I would be sharing it and ...

Progress In the Garden from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye


I (Teri) love to spend time in my garden, or in any garden, for that matter! My garden is much different in our new home, but one thing remains constant: I have portulacas planted along my sidewalk—a long-standing tradition as a tribute to my great-grandparents' garden. (See A Walk Through the Garden.) We have had a rather odd spring this year, with warm temperatures late in arriving and such a plethora of rain that sunshine is sparse. But my hostas and coneflowers are huge and already sporting flower buds, so they must be happy. And when my garden is ...

Primitive block of the Month- Remembering Cheri from Humble Quilts

 One of the admin of Cheri's group is starting a quilt using Cheri's patterns. I thought I'd jump in.

 Gee, it looks like I have a problem already! The baskets are supposed to be sewn to the bottom of the mother/daughter.  I knew I cut the cotton basket fabric oversized but didn't realize I did it that much!


Thanks for all your fun comments about my trip! I appreciate everyone that takes the time to leave a comment on my blog.
Make it a wonderful week!

May's Block in Wool! Snow Much Fun from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

  
I have been enjoying working with wool for my second version of this year's BOM. I've been having Snow Much Fun! This month's block is an adorable snowman with his dog. Not just any dog, but a hound dog like my sweet puppy Belvedere.

Let me tell you a little about Belvedere. He's a sweetheart, an adorable Basset Hound. I've never had a Basset before so he is very different then any dog I've ever had. He rules his own world and we are at his beckon call. He will only sit if there ...

"In the Garden"—Hummingbird and Fuchsia from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye



We are back In the Garden this week with the latest block of the month in our series. What better time than spring—at least here in the northern hemisphere—to think about what to plant to attract those cheerful, bright hummingbirds? Fuchsia seemed the obvious choice, with their vibrant colors . . . and they are fun to create, as well! We had a fabulous time blooming fuchsia in our class this past Sunday. You, too, can join in the fun; the pattern, complete with ribbon, pistils, and a metallic twist, is available on our website!





Here is how this block came ...

Snow Much Fun in Wool, April's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles

  
I have been enjoying working with wool for my second version of this year's BOM. I've been having Snow Much Fun! This month's block is an adorable snowman with his camper. Since it's a winter quilt I had to decorate the camper with a Christmas wreath and Christmas lights. I have been machine stitching my wool applique with Lana wool from Aurifil. I have loved the combo of the wool with the Primo Plaids from Marcus Fabrics. It's going to be such a cozy quilt. It'll be a fun quilt to put out next ...

Free Block of the Month 8—Quince Blossom from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Last month at this time, I (Kara) was wondering if spring was going to ever arrive here in Germany. Well, it has not only arrived, but burst forth with warm temperatures and stunning floral displays. Every day, I walk the dogs in an orchard filled with apple trees and garden spaces, so I had been hoping that spring would be magical as far as blossoms go—it did not disappoint! Here is a little glimpse of our orchard and the source for this month's block.























If only I could waft the scent of the blossoms through the internet, but ...
