Bits of This and That!

I have been sewing all over the place this week.  It is largely due to me avoiding sewing the borders onto En Provence! Firstly I made a Valentine wall hanging for my middle son and his wife who moved this weekend into a new (to them) house.  The wall hanging will be delivered today which is just perfect.  Oh, the half a doily in the picture went with the wall hanging  to add some Valentine cheer to their new place.

My eldest son and his wife requested another microwave bowl from me.  I made them one as a stocking stuffer for Christmas and they love it so much and asked me to make them another one.  That makes my heart so glad!

Then, on Saturday, I forced myself to attach those borders to En Provence and get it up off the floor.  I am happy to say that I achieved the goal and it wasn't so bad.  It is a huge quilt and requires lots of crawling around on the floor and pinning!  I even have the backing for this project and am so thrilled that I have completed the top.  It is in the queue for quilting now.

Missouri Star Quilt Company did a tutorial on these cat blocks and of course I just had to start one for myself.  I have been working on them for a couple of weeks now and I had ten left to make as of yesterday.  It was snowing all day so I finished the blocks and have laid them out.  I will probably put this top together today.  

I have also been looking at my two very large scrap bags and decided to do some scrap management. I will do a post about this later in the week.  
I hope you are all warm and cozy with all this snow flying around and busy quilting.  
Thank you for stopping by.

  3. En Provence is gorgeous. What a huge undertaking and beauty to finish.

  4. All such pretty projects. Love that fried egg fabric. If you can believe it, I still haven't made a microwave bowl yet...not sure why. It's got to be easier than just a bowl on my potholder...
