A Month of New Beginnings

We have been having a whole lot of weather 
here at my house! 
I even got a "snow day" off from work.
The roads were just too dangerous...
I got the call
just as I was walking out the front door so
I was very happy that I didn't have to  
go out in this!

So... snow day... translates into 
SEW day!

But before I show you what I have been up to

Here is our newest addition to the family...

her name is Kinsley Elaina

Wasn't it just a week or two ago that I showed a 
sofa filled with our other gran littles? 
Kinsley is #6 and she is just 2 months younger 
than Killian who was born 2 months ago today.

This is just staggering to me! 
So many little blessings! 

So now, I can pause a little and show
the fun little project I started.

This is the beginnings of Flower Patch by

I was going to make it out of Olive's Flower Market
but I decided to dive into my stash...

I am anxious to make some progress on this...
but since just one project isn't enough 
entertainment I
thought I would also keep a promise to myself
and start an embroidery project.

I am barely a beginner so  this will be a good place to 
get my bearings!

I'm using Lori Holt's 
Stitch Fun Embroidery Sampler.
What is a great bonus is that Lori has a 4 part
you Tube video series on how to embroider
using this pattern.


So... That layer cake of  Olive's Flower Market that I 
didn't use for my other project got re-assigned.


The Thimble Blossoms Sampler Quilt Along that
was hosted by Sew Lux last year was
a sew along that I had wanted to participate in but
I just couldn't seem to fit it in.
And I just happen to have the patterns that they used in the 
TB Sampler!

So, thank goodness for snow days... because I got to
play in my sewing room after being absent from
there for the past few weeks!

I'm on a roll now!

Congratulations on the new arrival, she is so cute. I could really do with a snow day but it isn't going to happen here in London. Still I've managed to get a little sewing done recently. Your blocks are very pretty, I can't wait to see more of your projects.

congratulations gramma.
So adorable and really you are so blessed.

I love the fabrics for the Flower Patch
and the other quilt is going to be really wonderful too

We have had a pretty dry winter. I am fine with that. I can take my dad out on adventures as long as we bundle up, but at least no slipping
