Sunday Musings

Sunday's are always a day of catching up, baking, bookkeeping or sewing.
Today I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies for my oldest sons birthday, did a little cleaning and worked on setting up my ETSY SHOP. 
Since I didn't get to put away most of my Christmas decorations yet, I thought that I would share some pictures with you.....

Warm Kitty

Brr....has it been cold outside.....
I am not the only one that thinks so!
I thought that I would share this cute picture of Mia snuggled under one of my quilts!
Mom's quilts always keep me warm.
Hope that you are having a warm and peaceful evening!

I hope that everyone is having a great 1st day of the New Year. I have been sewing like a mad woman trying to get ready for a new Block of the Month . It will be a Sampler BOM quilt made with 12" blocks and in two colorways. The 1st will be from Moda's Kansas Troubles fabrics and the other from assorted Civil War prints. The blocks are traditional and go together fast. The cost is $10 per month for each months pattern and fabric. It will run for 12 months with an optional finish kit.
Here is a sneek peak at the blocks made with the KT fabrics.

New Groups

Happy Monday Everyone,

For those of you that do not know me, let me tell you a little about myself.
I reside and own a Quilt Shop in a tiny town in Upstate New York. I love all things primitive including rug hooking, needle punch, wool applique, stitchery and quilts.
My shop keeps me busy with the day to day business, but I like to find time to do some of the other things that I love which include all of the above.
So I have decided to join a couple of online groups to keep me inspired and motivated . I have followed Lori of Notforgotten Farms for a while now and she is one busy lady. She recently started a rug hooking group called "The Out of Hand Rug Hookers" and has invited me to join. Yippee!
I also joined a stitchery group called " Prim Stitchers Society" that has captured my heart.
I will be posting some of my projects along the never know what they will be.
For my quilting friends, I have not forgotten about my love for traditional, primitive and civil war quilts. After all, I am still a quilt shop with a lot of fabric and a lot of wool!
And lets not forget about my two furry girls ( my M&M girls) Molly and Mia  they will appear from time to time.
So lets get started....
Although I am not much of a rug hooker yet, I am having fun with this pumpkin pattern from " The Old Tattered Flag" called ...Jack O with a Crow. He just called to me and I love him. I have been hooking him in my spare time and he probably wont be done anytime soon, so hang in there with me.
I would love your comments and feedback and any tips for this  newbie hooker, but for now I am flying by the seat of my pants.

                                                                Sweet Mia
                                                                     Sassy Molly

                                                                HAPPY HOOKING,
