Virtual Cookie Exchange And A Day Outside For Me

Sometimes I get carried away with sewing, blogging, and other important stuff and forget
to check out what's happening outside. So yesterday, with my finished quilt in tow, we took off
 to enjoy a day outside taking photos of the quilt. It was a beautiful day to be outside!

We took a long drive that had us ending up in the desert around Leeds in Southern Utah.
There's a special beauty to desert scenery, especially with red mountains in the background.



My crew member was scouting out the area and totally missed the guy standing in front of my quilt. 
It was actually a good thing that guy showed up since the quilt can't be shown until later.
Thanks, Santa! 
Oh, and thanks crew member for helping me!


The Virtual Cookie Exchange starts in four days...woohoo!
There's some yummy baking going on so be sure to check back on Monday.

Wouldn't this turkey look great in a quilt!

Dresden Quilt With Moda's Manderley Fabric

I loved sewing a couple quilts for Therm O Web's Quilt Market booth in Houston this year using
Moda's Manderley Fabric. I was so happy to have some fabric leftover to sew one more quilt.

It's a Dresden quilt in Manderley Fabric...sweet sewing!


This was the bundle of fabric I started with:


I made this little mini Sleepy Bunny Snuggle...


and this child's quilt, Three Bears Snuggle.


It's was a great deal to make use of such a beautiful bundle of fabric!

I've been baking for the Virtual Cookie Exchange.
Here's a little peek at what I'm baking...


I'm so excited about all the ladies who will be baking for this blog hop beginning December 5th.


There's room for you if you want to bake, too...just let me know.
I'd love to see what you bake up for the holidays!

It's Never Too Early To Make A Christmas Gift

It's over a month until Christmas arrives, but it's never to early to get started on Christmas projects and gifts. I started with this Santa mug rug and I'm over at the Therm O Web blog today showing 
how I made it. Be sure to check out the Therm O Web blog for more Christmas gift ideas!

Dear Santa Mug Rug


Therm O Web iron-on vinyl on the back helps protect furniture from drippy drinks.


There's a pocket for a letter to Santa, too.


Fill a basket or container with a mug, some yummy hot chocolate packets, marshmallows, and 
cookies to take to your friends or neighbors as a Christmas gift. Santa will love you for it!


You can find this pattern at Just Carol's Craftsy store HERE.

Trunk Full Of Quilts 2016

I love, love, love that Soma from Whims and Fancies is doing the
  Trunk Full of Quilts link-up again! Thanks, Soma!

Online Quilt Trunk Show | Whims And Fancies

There was my creation of a Grinch quilt...I love that guy!
It is definitely my favorite Christmas quilt.


The reindeer quilt was so fun to make and Rudolph has a very shiny nose!


The Dresden Love Quilt...I do love those Dresdens!


Another Dresden using Amanda Herring's fabric plus a doll and apron to go with it.



My Little Round Bag makes a great tote for sewing.


Spring Party Quilt
"Spring is nature's way of saying 'Let's Party!'" ~Robin Williams


Row quilts are such a breeze to make and this one has a little bunny in a pocket.



I love ice cream and so does this little pup who's catching a few sweet drips.
Summer Treats quilt


I have a son-in-law who is crazy about sci-fi shows like me.
This is a Star Wars quilt I made just for him.


Sweet Memories T-Shirt Quilt for my hubby who had lots of event t-shirts for this quilt.


This was a simple quilt of flowers in a Deco Foil vase. 
Isn't that a fabulous view behind it!


It's All About The Flowers with this quilt. I loved the fabrics!


I made a couple quilts with cuddle fabric on the back for two of my nieces.
The fabric has designs by Cori Dantini...she's amazing!



This Halloween quilt used another design by Cori Dantini.
I dressed the pumpkin head up with a flower and some shine using Deco Foil.


Being part of a group of amazing ladies who designed rows for My Road Home was great!
My row was from Las Vegas which is, and always will be, my home.


These two snuggle quilts went to Quilt Market in Houston this year to help introduce
Therm O Web's new Soft and Stretch applique product just for knits. It was amazing!
They were sewn using fleece and Moda fabrics. 


This one was a hit with my family who are all Walking Dead fans.
A little creepy, but I like creepy!


I hope you enjoyed the stroll through my latest projects.
