We hope all your holiday plans are going smoothly.  Both Polly and I are home bound (me by sub zero temperatures) and working on projects.  I hope to have pictures of my "in progress" quilt soon.  Today I am starching and cutting strips.

Here is what has been happening lately.....
There was a weekend trip to Toronto and we toured the Hockey Hall of Fame.  This is the entrance.

I took a picture of some of my Christmas quilts after our first snow.  From left to right it's Pieceful Journey, Lake Effect, and Patrick's Patchwork II.  Lake Effect and Patrick's Patchwork II patterns are in our Etsy shop.  Pieceful Journey was in a McCall's magazine many years ago and that issue is unfortunately sold out - BUT we have a smaller version in our Etsy shop titled Christmas Past.

Waiting for supplies to arrive for my next quilt..... I worked on this one.  This is the center finished and the borders will come later.  This is one of those projects I work on in fits and spurts.  It's called The Rowdy Flat Library Quilt designed by Susan Smith.  I bet you think it's a bit different than my usual quilts. It is.  I wanted a quilt that could use a bright orange toile - and this seemed to be the one.

If you need supplies for an upcoming quilt - maybe we can be of help.  All Miss Scarlet pre-cuts in our Etsy shop are on sale 30% - Just use the coupon code MISSSCARLET when you check out. The pre-cuts can be found in the Fabric Bundle section.

I'm using a bit of Miss Scarlet right now in my new wintery quilt (I'll post pics very, very soon)

So you are using that wonderful orange toile that you found. Fantastic. Can't wait to see the final pictures of Rowdy Flats. The snow looks beautiful but I'm in Southeast Texas what do I know about snow.
