Drawing,Snowman Quilt-Projects Made by Friends-February Winter Sale-Your Color Fix for Today, 2 Quilts for Sale

Winter has been miraculously beautiful this year, yet all the snow and ice has kept me housebound more than I care to admit. The could temperatures and icy conditions have me craving for the sunshine. I love this little cupcake and here is the recipe for this cutie.

My pencil and eraser have been neglected lately and I thought it was time to do some drawing. When I draw, it's automatic. I really don't think ahead of what I want to put on the paper, it just flows from the mind through my fingers. Sometimes my imagination races ahead of my fingers and I toggle between drawings...a little bit of this and that, add eyebrows and then go to the other drawing and add wings and then to the other to add shading.It is like a bunch of little drawing muses pushing each other out of line to get their drawing done first.
I appliqued this little snowman quilt at the end of last year and am now machine quilting it.I took a poll on Facebook asking about the tilted tree and it seemed that everyone said to leave it, and so I shall. Pattern for this will be out in early March...I know, a little late in the game, but winter and snow come every year!

I was walking little Zoie last month and saw this beautiful shape in the sky. I always have my camera in hand and clicked a pic. Later in that week, I realized the picture was taken on the same day my maternal grandmother passed away many years ago. I would like to think this figure in the sky is an angel, can you see her wings?

Sue Caldwell from Westbrookeville, NY send me her pictures of the lunch bag she made using my Iridescence Fabric Collection. I super love how she used the diamonds in the stripe on the handles. Beautiful job Sue!  
The pattern she used is called "Laura's Zippered tote" from Creative Thimble.
 And....Jeanne Moore of Matamoras, PA sent me her quilt top she is working on using "Iridescence" Way to go Jeanne!!!

This is my next project to machine quilt, I need to come up with a name as it will be a new class. I call it "The Monogram Quilt" for now, or maybe that name will just be fine to use! Those are my initials in the middle, but the nice thing is that you can ink, embroider or applique your names in the hearts and then put the family initilas in the center....Lots of possibilities! I will embroider the little doodads that extend from the top of the two hearts and then bead the ends.

I thought I lost these pictures but just found them on a camera card. While I was lecturing for a guild in Wellsboro, PA, my hostess showed me her kitchen. Now don't ask me where to get this, because I don't know. Her kitchen wallpaper had quilt blocks on it and her wooden floors had inlaid quilt block designs. She is so cool!!!

And a little of Zoie.........
