I have been busy---really!!

I haven't blogged for a whole week and how the time has flown by! I haven't done much, but I have been busy with some small items. One has been this wall hanging of wool applique--it has been slow going because it is something new to me and everything seems to take longer to figure out for some reason---even though it is just like regular applique only I'm using wool fabric and button-hole stitching it to a cotton. What is my problem??!! I don't really know except for some reason it makes me nervous!!!! As you can see from the picture beside it, it is a crock with geraniums and a small flag in it.

The other thing I did was three 12.5" blocks for a Project Linus quilt that some friends and I are putting together sometime soon--don't know just when yet. We were given the black print fabric and had to make blocks from it with other colors. I like my happy, bright other colors. These were fun to do!

Thanks to everyone who has been leaving comments on my Whirl Into Winter Drawing--there are so many comments that I can't answer each and every one, but I'm glad to hear your stories . Tomorrow is the big day where I will draw a number at random and that person will be the winner. Can't wait to see who the winner is!!!! Hard to believe that it is the 15th of January already---this month is flying by, too! Good luck to all of you!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
