End of Year!!


Just a quick note on a few projects I've started!  If the last few days is any indication of what 2013 will be like, then it is very likely that I will start dozens of new projects!!  fun right!  yay, I think so.

Ok, the first one at the top (the green one)  is a 16 patch square to mimic a cross.  Great idea right?  I found it on Pinterest.  The fabrics  are from Moda's V&Co.  I'm going to make a quilt with several of these of all her different colors from her charm pack.  

 Then there is one of my favorite blocks, the Greek Cross.  I found this pretty Navy fabric on ebay.

 And the tiny crosses are Moda's Spa by Deb Strain with basic Navy fabric for the background.

 And now for something brand new!!!  Have you ever Needle Felted?  Have you ever heard of it?  I discovered it recently through Pinterest and I'm going to give it a try.  All that pretty wool up there will (hopefully) turn into some very cute woodland animals!  I found the sweetest little farm!  Carole, at Plum Blossom Farm in California has a sheep farm.  She loves her sheep, so it's extra neat to know that my wool comes from happy sheep!  Check her shop out, she has lots of cute stuff and she is super nice and very customer service friendly.

And last but not least!  I do have a finish!  I finally binded my little pet/doll quilt. I just love the pink and green together.  :)

Ok, I'm off to enjoy some good times of the last moments of 2012 with my sweet Hub and two little sweetie pies!  Happy New Year!  -Little Mama Hen
