Courage!

Sunday morning. It's Mr. P's birthday today.

I'm working up the courage to quilt my Green and White.


I will start with stitch-in-the-ditch and then do some free-motion quilting in the blocks. That's the plan right now - all plans are subject to change without notice.

Barb mentioned this blog on Facebook so I went over to take a look. It's worth the time to browse - really! It's helping with the courage thing - in more ways than one.

Last night I finished the Snowman in the Woods top!


Am I allowed to say that I think mine is nicer than the one in the pattern?

I like my one red mitten.

I am going to pin-baste it at school tomorrow. I have the backing and batting all ready to go!

This morning we had the most beautiful sunrise. I had to share it with you. Such gorgeous colours in the sky.


And, I'm pretty sure all my ATC swap group members have received their card from me this month so I'll show that to you too. The theme was White on White. With all the crazy snow we've been having lately, what better interpretation of the theme than a snowflake? And, of course, I prefer fabric to paper.


I loved making this one. It was such a great theme chosen by Deb.

So...that's my Sunday so far. How is yours going? What are you working on today?

I did receive your ATC and absolutely love it! (Sorry, I meant to drop you a note to let you know it arrived.) I'd like a whole white-on-white quilt like that, please!

Congrats on finishing the snowmen-- I love the one red mitten, too.

Beautiful sunrise. And a happy birthday to Mr. P!
