A few things to share

Well, I've done it again, started yet another quilt... this one is a log cabin quilt. I am making 90 blue and yellow blocks. I am 1/2 way done with them. I have two more rows to sew around the blocks to finish them off. I love this color combination. I had a ton of yellow/blue scraps so those are getting used up.


Then, I finished the stitching for the Shepherd's Bush needleroll. I just need to finish it into a needleroll now. I like it a lot, the pattern was very cute. And the specialty stitches were fun to learn.


Then, I finished this little one. It's called Little Acorn by The Knotted Tree. This was the kit they handed out at the Acorns and Threads night. I like it okay, it was fun to stitch though :D Also, I received my first pair of Gingher scissors :D They are the Alyssa model. I love them. So pretty.


And I leave you with a drawing my son did of himself. I think it's adorable. The house by him "has Christmas lights on it, and he's happy to see the sun." as described by Curren.

The needleroll is so beautiful and so is the Little Acorn. Your son's drawing is really cute :)

I found your blog from SBEBB and have enjoyed reading it!

Let's hear it for blue/yellow combination - my current favorite. And it has been for several years now. While I also enjoy others, I seem to naturally gravitate to blue/yellow and my latest batch of cards definitely reflects that. :D

You have been one busy woman. I love the SB needleroll and that quilt, it's going to be gorgeous.

I wonder who the blue and yellow one is for. But maybe I'll read it later. Anyway, you are a master in that block technique. I'd create only one big mess no one could clear out.
