A couple starts & finishes

This Merry Christmas is going to be a wall hanging the pattern is from the Art To Heart book "Star Of Wonder" by Nancy Halvorson don't you love the buttons on this it really makes it stand out. The snowmen pattern is from Crab-Apple Hill and it's going to be a pillow I did most of it while we were at Mrs. Miller's cabin last week.

This bag is a pattern from Marlous Designs called "Maggie's Bag" and it's going to one of my BF named Maggie the fabric is "It's a Hoot" and I made a coin purse from the Stitchin Sisters Snap Happy pattern.

The fall table runner is out of a magazine sorry I couldn't get it turned the right way it is made from flannel and wool so that's it for now need to get my starts finished then I'll post them till then Happy Stitching!!!

Mrs. Miller's cabin weekend

Last April I went on a retreat with girls from my quilt guild and there was a shop hop going on well I won the top prize of a one night stay at Mrs. Miller's cabin in "Charm, Ohio" right in the heart  of Amish country... how ironic since I'm Mrs. Miller cool I invited 10 ladies from guild to go with me because I could take up to 10 people so this past weekend we went but, only 7 went 3 couldn't go and did they miss a good time. We got there at 3:00 on Thursday afternoon and stayed till Sat. morning because we decided to add an extra day so we stayed Friday night also. We had so much fun we were all doing different things, some of us took hand embroidery to do one girl put the binding on a quilt, the quilt in picture below some cut out pieces for quilts they've started and of course lots of talking & eating and can't forget shopping since the cabin is right behind Mrs Miller's quilt shop the cabin was just beautiful so peaceful & serene we are all ready to go back again. If you live close enough and would love a quiet weekend away I highly recommend this place.

A couple of finishes!

This one is an Advent quilt by Nancy Halvorson it was alot of fun to make quick & easy just the kind I like all the figures are attached by a piece of round cord elastic on a button so they are removable. I only stitched around the angel at the top the rest is not quilted. The one below is a Halloween one that I finally finished and have hanging in my kitchen I just did some wavy lines for the quilting on it my free motion quilting leaves alot to be desired well that's all for now have a great day!!
