Susie hasn’t been fond of the cold weather.  Here she is ready to go outside.


Doesn’t look overjoyed does she?

Hexie Club

We had a small showing at Hexie Club.  It was very cold and many of the group decided to stay home and stay warm.  Can’t say that I blame them.  It was cold!

Here are a couple of projects being worked on.

Thought I would share a few recent photos of Susie.  It is hard to believe we have only had her for a couple of months.  She is certainly a major part of the family already.

Lamb for Dinner

Four of us went to Cooks Warehouse for a class last night.  It was a lot of fun and tasted great!

New Block of the Month

Here are my Allatoona Block of the Month blocks for January and February.

0215 - My blocks

The one with the little squares (36 of them finishing at 6 inches) is the February block.  As you can see, I am using Kaffe for the house blocks and then polka dots for the rest of the house.  I love the background.  I don’t even remember when I bought it but I am glad I found it while sorting through my stash.

Tomorrow is BOM day at guild so hopefully I will have a lot more photos to share.

Saturday Sampler

0215 February Blocks

Here are all the February blocks for Saturday Sampler.  We are working on 3 solids quilts with white, grey and black backgrounds.  We are also finishing up on the Out of the Box quilts with Kaffe, Blue and Yellow and Bonnie and Camille.  There was an extra block for each of these quilts this month which is the bottom row.

I cut the Kaffe blocks and the solids – lots and lots of blocks cut!
