Today I have a little finish to share with you. This is a project from Prairie Women's Sewing Circle Club. If you've clicked the link this project is from Journey 2 and you will notice this was a 20 block project and mine is 9. I assembled this while I was at retreat last month. Each little block (4"?) took an hour to paper piece. That's if I got it right the first time - which I didn't. It took me some time to warm up as it's been a while. I chose to use all Jo Morton fabrics. Anyway, 9 seemed to be a good size. This will be a nice little quilt for a table top - I'll put it out around Memorial Day and leave it up until after the 4th of July.

I received a very unexpected surprise in the mail last week. Heather from It's Geek to Me decided to have an unannounced give away and pulled a name from her commenters. I won! If you're not a follower of Heather's blog - you should be! She is an extremely talented stitcher and knitter and quite funny. She is also the host of Theme-A-Licious which is a year of fun monthly themes geared toward stitching and knitting that can be adapted for any hobby/craft/art. The thread winders have been put into immediate use with my threads for Ann Dale. They'd otherwise be quite a mess! The chart is gorgeous and the notepad will be great for little notes to my DH. Thank you Heather - I love it all!
I hope to be back this week with a Theme-A-Licious update for February!
