 to help keep them warm
 I have been stitching away!!
Did add the rows of snow garland to the tree--
and I got the saying all embroidered for Shell's January SAL--
so that maybe on Monday I can get the rest of this ready for stitching--
I need to organize all my felt/wool first and I did get those totes out of the closet today--
am putting my felt/wool into a 3 drawer unit that has wheels on it and it will go
under my cutting table--will be much easier to get to that
than at the bottom of the closet
like I have had it!!!

And I designed and sewed together a winter quilt--
Bought this line of fabric a couple years ago now--
and have wanted to do something with it--
first I fussy cut the 4 stone and log cabin homes into blocks and just kept
playing from there--
the snowmen,trees,fence and icicle rows are also a panel!
so now I have a quilt top--
and here is the backing for it--
the bird fabric I had a yard of it--
but it wasn't long enough in lenght--
but had lots of the rows of panel left--
so put the snowmen row at the bottom
 and the benches one at the top to make it long enough--
now to find time to quilt it!!!!
