Brrrrr

As I write this the day is certainly getting colder, icy cold in fact.  I had been outside cleaning out the inside of my car and got colder and colder.  The outside is just going to have wait with it's paw prints from the kitties on it for now.  We have had some beaut frosts this week, but lovely days after it.

I have doing a little stitching and have nearly finished the ring pillow I started weeks ago.  I have the beads to put on then will make it up.  If I feel inclined I may even sew the beads on this afternoon. Pictures will come when this is finished.  I have also stitched on my Mother's Heart...



And I have discovered quilting.  On my, this is very cool and I am just loving putting my first quilt together.  Leanne's House. I have had this kit for sometime now -  a good couple of years! - and a friend, Clare, has been helping me get started.  I have done a couple of blocks with some half completed, and some with a little of the stitching done too.  I think I like these quits as they have both elements that I love to do in them, makes the quilt interesting with a story that goes with it.





It's pretty cool and I am already contemplating my next quilt, Journey of a Quilter.  I have already started gathering a few pieces of fabric for this one.  Next winter perhaps!!

Off to finish some chores and warm my hands up!

LOL - my car is just the same. Our neighbours have about 20 cats and they all ski down my windscreen!

Love your Mother's Heart! :)

Your SB Mother's Heart looks gorgeous! Such a pretty design. You're going great with your quilting too. Something I'd like to try in the future.
