C O L D : Weather & Me

Here's my setup for finishing my Wall hanging for our living room: {pauvre petit lapin is all blurry }

FINALLY, this cold/flu-like bug has left me; and I was able today to finish this quilting.  The Jason Yenter fabric {In the Beginning from 2010} had been lying in wait for me to do SOMETHING with it.  I just couldn't see cutting it --yup, I have that syndrome, too, mes amies. SO-- It will be the back of Christmas time wall hanging for us --very nostalgic and sentimental.  I love the way the holly curls in diamond shapes--just perfect for use as a quilting shape.  I big-stitched this side and just took lil' bites from the other side...[I think I showed the Good Luck Crane fabric on another post here].

I still like to use that 1/4" tape to mark my quilt path--love this colorway--just a little different for Christmas, I think.  Those little old-timey vignettes are just charming.

Am still struggling with the bindings on my muggle rugs--they just look CLUNKY to me--especially around those corners.  AND....so it goes....

That is all for this time--Bundle up and have a great weekend..Julierose, La Blageuse


  1. Julie I can't read all of your post because the moon chart is over part of it. I have tried everything. I can't see what I am typing so excuse any typos.

  2. That fabric is so pretty. I can see why you're having a hard time cutting it up! So glad to hear you're feeling better. So cold this morning! Not sure I like this!!
