Sometimes I just love painting quilt blocks. I found these today in a sack in my studio, I had forgotten all about them.

Against my wishes, we acquired a homeless cat and named her CARLA. Well like most sneaky felines she managed to get us to wait on her hand and foot. She has become my close friend and I talk to her often, she inspires a lot of my "cat" work.

Fons & Porter is about to release their Jan/Feb 2014 issue of Love of Quilting, that has my design that uses these Mr. & Mrs. snowman buttons. It has been a wonderful learning experience to work with them. I have loved everything they did of my work. Hope to do more projects like these in the near future. Stay tuned!

I found this little Dutch girl in a bag with it stitched.
First it is sketched out on the back of a calendar. April 1959. Then copied onto a white piece of paper, then onto the fabric. I wonder what it was going to be? A quilt block? A pillow? I will put it in a frame. Nothing went to waste. I love that.

I found this wooden stocking at the local thrift shop, it wasn't bad, but wanted to re-do him and glitter him up a little.
I painted it a dark blue and then painted my snowman.
Added glitter and let him dry over night. He is ready for the season!

One of my favorite things to stitch. I never tire of seeing how these pups look in different colors of fabric and thread. No wonder they've been a main stay for years.
This measures 8" X 13" each Scotty is about 3" across. Sweetie pies...

I found this chair awhile back at a thrift store. I remember seeing them when I was a child and thought I would take it home and clean it up.
After a thorough cleaning, I sewed a new pin cushion seat for it, put little "tufts" in it with two strands of floss and stuck some ceramic pin tops I had made in it. Found a pair of scissors for the top and six little spools of thread that I found at a thrift store. It turned out so cute! I boxed it up along with some other goodies for my secret Santa swap and sent her off!
Hope she likes it!
