I've made quite a lot of progress on my Wonderland quilt, but now it is getting too big to photograph.  Take the last photo I posted of the blocks and multiply it by 4, and that's the progress I have made on that project.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

January I started a new stitching project.  I found this cute pattern - Wool and Needle Snowmen thru the Year by Buttermilk Basin.  Each piece is 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 and can be entirely stitched, or you can add wool applique pieces, which is what I am doing with mine.  I will frame these with quilt fabric and make a wallhanging.

I used Sandhut fabric for the first time as my background, and it's great for stitching.  It's substantial enough that I don't need a hoop, and the thickness of it means I don't have to worry about threads showing through to the front.  I followed this wonderful tutuorial to transfer my design to Solvy and it works really great!  This will be my warm up project to Winter Wonderland.


  1. So cute! I love it stiched on the sandhut fabric. I can't wait to see the rest of your blocks.

  2. I adore him. He is just so sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. How cute, Lisa! I found the Sandhut a while back and was so glad as they no longer make Sandcastle, which I loved!

  4. Yeah, fun to see what you're working on. I'm not a stichery girl though so I might ask about 2nd Story if I were going to be so rude as to distract from the focus of the conversation. We can always tell when I'm starting to bounce back because that dern "voice" comes to life. Pretty soon the thief is going to show up. You just watch!
