wow- warming up winter

Ta heck with ground hogs.  Winter will just be as everlasting as necessary.  I shall think warm thoughts, stitch warm covers, and sip apple cider by the fire!  The little rug is my only rug hooking attempt and if I had time, I'd do more. I liked it!

I'm going to leave the finishing of my leaf wall hanging until I can see green leaves in the landscape and work up my nerve to stamp on the quilt top.

In the mean time I am really warming up to these blocks from my old ufo pile of scraps.

When my thoughts kinda freeze up at the end of the day I can just put two fabrics together and sew.  When I get tired of that I switch to the iron and trimming. They'll finish at five inches and I'll need approximately 64 blocks.  They are going to be such fun to arrange!  

I shall try with the first teacup and then after I warm up I'll  get busy on the cold cups.  While I'm stitching I shall think about the kitchen curtain as the blinds are up and the curtain rod is hung.  The window trim needs another coat of paint but I'll wait till the wind changes and the draft settles down. ;~)

Stay warm and see what the other gals from The Needle and Thread Network are doing to stay warm.

You must feel warmer with those delicious "hot" colored blocks you are sewing. Yikes to the curves! Sipping cider by the fire is a very good thing dear...
