A Sew Snow Day

It's snowing . . . again.
I thought I'd share some of the craft projects
I work on when I'm at home
for school "snow" days.

I used a Moda charm pack for this long table runner.
 I love the "Little Charmers" patterns.
I used "Little Charmers II" for this lovely.

I also wanted to try
a new stitch on my Viking Husqvarna Sapphire.

These tea towels feature fused appliqué shapes.
The pattern comes from an Art to Heart book.

I really like this appliqué satin stitch on the edging.
I've never used this stitch before.

I'm almost done with the green appliqués.
After I finish the edging stitches I'll add buttons and ric rac.
I made this pieced doll quilt top 
from a 2008 Quilts and More pattern I had saved.
The experience reminded me once again
why I shy away from projects that require
one and a half inch squares!

I do like the look of the piping before the border.  
Maybe I'll use the same technique on another project.

I've also had time to work on some collaged cards.
I incorporated a couple of my fabric scraps into both cards.
Can you see them?

I'm planning on quilting the two table runners this spring.
 Perhaps I'll finish the tea towels this week.
It depends.
The weatherman says more snow is coming.

As beautiful as snow can be, I won't be sad to see it go.

Like my doxies, I prefer to stay inside if I can.  
That is . . . if I can sew!

Be safe!
