I celebrated another birthday this week and thought you might like to see some of my goodies!
My son surprised me with these lovely flowers and some of my favorite chocolate cookies!

My husband gave me this beautiful Santa to add to my collection.Isn't he fabulous? The Santa I mean, though my husband is pretty darn fantastic too!

My daughter and my Mom both gave me some spending money, in case I needed to add to my stash. I'll show you what I bought when the parcels arrive! lol

I'm still in a bit of a rut with my quilting. I know what I want to do for my next large project but I just can't decide on a background fabric. In the meantime I've been working on a few more small quilts for the quilt guild's charity group. Don't want you to think I've been goofing off. lol

I'll be back later and hope to be able to show you someone's completed "Vintage Tiles Revisited" block two.

Denise of Chatham, Ontario, sent me a photo of her completed "Vintage Tiles Revisited" block One. Isn't it fabulous!
If you have missed it, the 1st block of "Vintage Tiles Revisited" can still be downloaded at Lecien's site here

The 2nd block will be available for download sometime next week.

I would love to see photos of your blocks, if anybody would like to share them with us, email your photo to me and I will post it on my blog.

Bye for now.

Vintage Tiles Revisited

I have discovered I goofed in the material requirements for the background fabric, I advised 8 yards, when it should be either 7 yds, (if you like to have some extra in case of miscuts or other mishaps), 6 1/2 if you don't. I like to have the extra, especially when the project is spread out over a year, just in case the fabric is sold out. Lecien will be correcting their files.
Please accept my apology.

Vintage Tiles Revisited

Just thought you might like to see the new design I've been working on, using some of Lecien's fabulous taupe fabrics. This is "Vintage Tiles Revisited" and it is being offered as a free Block of the Month on Lecien's web site here
The first block is available now.
Edit: The patterns for "Vintage Tiles Revisited" are no longer available as a free download, however the complete pattern can now be purchased from me for $25.00 Can.
I still haven't been able to settle on a new winter project. I think I've lost my mojo! I hope I find it soon.

Bye for now.
