Winter Blues Blog Hop Begins Today And It's My Day

I love kicking off the Winter Blues blog hop that's hosted by Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks.
Carla is so creative in everything she does!


Winter Blues is a real thing that causes us to lose the desire to do much of anything.

WINTER BLUES/SEASONAL FUNK - a feeling of depression or deep 
unhappiness associated with experiencing the cold and darkness of winter.

But we love fabric, we love to sew, and we love to show off what we make.
Let's kick those blues to the curb...or put them in a quilt...and get blog hopping!

Winter Ice


Winter Ice measures 59" x 59" and is made with fabrics from
Northcott's "Silent Night" line.



You can find the pattern for "Winter Ice" in my Etsy store HERE.


Look who else is sharing their Winter Blues...

  2. I love those snow flakes. An as for me, I hope they stay in that quilt, because I don't like snow. I'm in Norway, and we almost have summer temperatures just now.

  7. Your Winter Ice quilt is so pretty! Definitely would chase the blues away. I don’t get the Winter blues. I love the opportunity to stay indoors and play and hide from the cold and ice and snow shoveling.

  20. I really like your Winter Ice quilt (much better than the ice hanging from my eaves and covering my front steps). The snowflakes among the stars reminds me of winter walks at night when the stars and moon are shining and a light fluffy snow is falling.
