quilting in january

how’s it going in your neck of the woods this afternoon? it’s a tad chilly at 19F feels like 10F and the next week or so we are looking at subzero highs…time to pull out an old project, nab a new project, or cozy up with coffee and your tablet and do a little bit of online shopping.

if you are looking for a little something-something to take your mind of winter…Porcelain by 3 Sisters arrived today (we have ordered up 3 more bolts which will arrive sometime next week) and it has us dreaming of springtime.

Porcelain features soft shades of grey, mist, blossom, and porcelain and the flowers are romantic, gentle, and sure to fit seamlessly with their previous collections…Victoria and Poetry to name a few.

Cottage Hearts, Porcelain, & Amberley

we tucked it in with our walk-in display…i love how it mixes with other cottage style florals…can’t wait until we get some projects finished up.

we have porcelain yardage available online and in-store…precuts are still on order and expected later this month.

we do have a few things on the agenda

  • English Paper Piecing tutorial
  • chunky thread (YARN!!!) by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet is expected tomorrow so a little crochet is on the horizon.
  • 4 x 5 Quilt Block Anthology…mom is done with the blocks for the first column (we’ll have each column available as a kit once i get that all figured out…)
  • project featuring Garden Variety…a wonderful quilt to use for the Easter festivities…

just a few things on my list…now back to Ring of Roses…i’ve decided to spend the last hour or so every work day working on her…i’ll do a post on Ring of Roses once i get a little bit more finished up.

Lucy Boston…i’ve neglected Lucy’s Summer Cottage…but my goal for 2019 is to get some of the unfinished projects finished…i have several both large and small that i would like to get finished…so here’s hoping! i’m hoping to do a Lucy Tuesday’s next week…January 29th. maybe i’ll have working on her a little bit.

happy stitching! –stay warm & cozy–
