Warm and Cozy

Nope, I'm not exactly talking about the weather.
Although we had one day over the weekend of perfect fall weather,
it was a teaser because we are back to hot now.

What I am talking about is my iron cozy!
Warm and cozy!
This is from a pattern by Me and My Sister.
Now, I know that it's not something we always NEED, but
isn't it fun? It does coordinate with my iron board cover... but
that was in the wash at the moment.
Yes, I do wash my iron board cover, every now and then!

I have been having fun making up these little blocks.
They are for something I saw on the Molly Flanders blog.
I just had to copy! I wanted to give you the link for the project but
I can't find it on her blog anymore. Hmmm, mysterious! I guess we will just have to wait
and see what it turns into.

Next on my list was this:

 I put out a challenge for the people attending my retreat in a few weeks.
Before coming to the retreat, they can make a sewing machine cover and
we will choose one randomly to win a gift certificate.
And even though I am not going to be entered... I thought that I at least needed one for
my little featherweight machine.  The little guy is warm and cozy now.
But then this week I saw one that I wanted to make...
it was a free pattern by Bari J. Using her fabric, which I already have, so even better!
The new one will be made for my Pfaff. And then it could be warm and cozy too.

Here is my Flowers for Nana Girl quilt from the Scrap Basket Sensation book.
Only I made it with my Yuletide Blessings fabric by Fig Tree & Co. that I have been hording.
I finally let loose of my polka dot fabric for the border... it was Mistletoe Manor by 3 Sisters.
Amazingly, I had exactly enough lengthwise yardage to fit the border! How lucky is that? I guess it was meant to be.
Thelma at Cupcake 'n Dasies showed a little Schnibbles pattern that she was working on last week.
It is a new one called Bibelot.
But for obvious reasons...

Thelma thought it should be named for her.
Then I got to thinking....
my sons' names all start with the same letter... "T".
So I thought I needed to make one of these also...
and call it Triple T! So here is my start:

"T" not only stands for Thelma, but it stands for Teague, Tauren and Todd too!
Hmmm, I might have to triple size it.

You make my head spin! How do you manage to accomplish so much? It's always like a mini quilt show over here. :-)

I love all your projects. Such a cute iron oozy! I really need to make a sewing machine cover.

Your Flowers for Nana Girl quilt is gorgeous in those fabrics. And the tiny T blocks are super cute!

I saw this pattern and thought I needed to make for my husband - Tim. I am still considering it. I am curious about the real name, though.
