Snow Buddies..... the pattern for give away today.  Same request, the pattern should go to someone who has never won a pattern.  It will go to the early bird!  Email -

Snow Buddies.

This bag, was made for me by my very dear friend.  I received it last evening when our quilt group met. What a lucky and happy lady I am today.

There was a pincushion exchange and this is one of them.

The scene on the opposite side, was just as sweet.

Here is another pincushion which was received with a happy heart!

And these 2 wee pin keeps place inside antique salt cellars.

After enjoying a scrumptious meal of homemade soup, warm bread sticks and a yummy salad, we had our show and tell.

I shared this quilt, Remember the Giver.

And this new quilt which I am working on.

Vickie shared these 2 vintage quilt tops which she purchased at an estate sale.  We decided she hit the jack pot!  She bought the 2 tops for $15.00.

Julie, share this quilt which she just completed.  It is just waiting for the binding.  Stunning!

Valerie, shared this completed quilt top from one of Cherie Payne's patterns.  We loved it.

This is the Bee Happy quilt which Valerie is working on.  It is a pattern, by Lori Holt.

Kerry, brought this soft and beautiful quilt.

The background for the quilt did not disappoint.

Leslie, is nearly finished piecing her Dear Jane quilt.  She is planning on hand quilting it.

Here is the quilt which Leslie just made and has named it Lucy's Quilt.  She will be teaching this at the quilt retreat coming up in February at Bryce Canyon.  She is also hand quilting this.

I returned home inspired, and a bag of home made ginger snap cookies which dear Vicki gave me!  All is well on this front!

Christmas Or Not...... the pattern to be given away today, for anyone who has never won a pattern.  I had questions of where to email, you should email me at  Those who live outside the United Stated, do not hesitate to apply, because most all of my patterns are available as a download.

Another small exhibit at the museum, was by Olive Bucklin.

I was deeply touched by Olive's story, and I'm sure you are also.

Woodland Tree Skirt...... the free pattern for todays give away.  Get your tree skirt stitched over the new year.  Once again the pattern will go to the early bird.....for those who have never won.

I have a few more items to share from the Sacred Scraps at the International Quilt Study Museum.

An amazing amount of work for a child's bib. Perhaps my understanding of this does not transfer to the kind of bib we think of here in this country's tradition.

The flying geese pattern is definitely popular for these people.

Little ones out and about in these gorgeous baby carriers.  This concludes this exhibit.

Christmas In the Village Green.

The mode of transportation, the camel, would be all decked out in this finery, for the bride on her wedding day.

Recall the camel knee pads from yesterday.....all the details covered, for the special occasion.

Now, we see the special preparations for the nursery.

Notice that the hems are unhemmed hoping to not stunt the child's growth.
