Winter Solstice Quilt Block - August Update

Winter Solstice Quilt block in progress

I have made lots of progress on my Winter Solstice quilt block project this month! My goal for August was to cut all the pattern pieces and stitch them together so the block is ready for embroidery - lots of embroidery! And I am almost there!

Like I said before - making blog posts of projects that have been languishing on my to do lists year after year - best idea I ever had! Quite an effective motivator!

Book Review - Christmas Crafts Scandinavian Style

Christmas Crafts Scandinavian Style

Christmas Crafts Scandinavian Style by Tone Merete Stenklov and Miriam Nilsen Morken and published by Stackpole Books

I LOVE this book! I can't begin to tell you how many times I have picked it up in the past couple weeks while relaxing with a lovely hot cup of coffee in hand, my eyes pouring over every page and my mind happily dreaming of making!

Christmas in July Tutorial - Hexie/Kanzashi Pincushion

Hexie Pin Cushion

A sweet little hexie/kanzashi pin cushion to celebrate Christmas in July!

Some of us who make gifts for Winter Holiday giving like to get started "making" early. And since many of us, and I am no exception, have been completely seduced by hexies and kanzashi, I decided as my "Christmas in July" gift to you, I would incorporate both in designing a little pin cushion that would be perfect for holiday gift giving.

First Winter Holiday Quilt Block

Holiday Quilt Blocks

"Welcome to the North Pole: Santa's Village in Applique" by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins - Piece O' Cake Designs.

When I first saw a completed quilt based on the designs offered in this book, I wanted very much to make one just like it. I was completely enchanted by the playful little houses and tipsy trees.
