WIP Wednesday-snow day for me!

WIP- Winter in Paradise?
maybe not...
I still have summer tires on my car..eek!
The earliest I can get my snow tires put on is November 23rd!
Guess I'll have to make other arrangements for a tire change:-)
Either way.....
I see a lot of quilting time in my future!
However, yesterday was not idle...
I pulled out a Lil' Twister quilt I had stashed away for a while, put on a border and grid quilted it. Backed with the yellow and blue flannelette.
This fabric is Freebird from MoMo.
It's small-just used one pack of charms.
It might be about 22x24.
I just need to add the binding and call it a finish!
I've been a little obsessed with polymer clay since I bought a ton of it on sale at Michael's!
Just one of those impulse buys I seem to do frequently!
So, in honour of the snow day, I made a few Christmas ornaments
with a white glitter clay and a few Christmas stamps.


Very quick and easy to do. It doesn't show up well in my sucky photos, but the glitter
looks really nice!
I added some ribbon that I had on hand, and a glittery button.
I need to get some Christmas ribbon!
I did have a finish this week, and I am so darn pleased with it too!
A Groovy Kind of Love
is finished!!!

  I quilted parts of this quite heavily, and I am relieved to be done with it!
Not my favourite thing to do, but I really need the practice with FMQ.

Oh, I almost forgot, I also finished and mailed the tote and key fob for Mouthy Stitches2.

I also have a block to do for Nicky for Star of Africa; two blocks to do for Happiness @ do. Good Stitches
Also!!
Sandi has posted new blocks for TYSS. I need to get crackin' on them as well!
Maybe it's a good thing I'll be indoors until the roads clear up!
Linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced 
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
and
Monika at TNTN
 
Have a great sewing week!

I like that your Groovy quilt incorporated that print into the top! All of the other ones that I have seen have been all solids. :)

Yes...this is winter tire weather for sure!! Sorry we missed seeing you yesterday, but looks like you got a lot done!

Celtic Thistle said...

Looks like you have been busy! Love what you have done with the polymer clay too!

Bouts Choisis said...

My goodness - you have been busy - an incredible list of achievements! Hmmmm - snow - at least that would make a change from all the rain we've been having this year in Normandy!

CitricSugar said...

You made hay, that's for sure! Beautiful stuff - a nice way to spend a day...

Sam said...

I remember when you decided to go with a print on your groovy quilt. I must say it was a great choice and an impressive quilt.

Great stuff Patti! My son keeps checking the weather in different parts of Canada, and he is convinced that if it's snowing in sask, then it's snowing in Alberta, then it's even snowing in southern BC, that surely it will hit here next!! I keep telling him, it has to be COLD enough. But no, he's convinced there's a storm on our horizon. hehe

Love the Groovy quilt, yours really says 70s! I can't believe you have snow already - yikes! And I adore the little scooter key fob - too cute!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Thanks for visiting, Rita. I love your quilts...both of them...and the quilting on the Curvy one is gorgeous!!! I am getting a bit better, but a long way from yours

Cille said...

Snow already... ? Well, there's no better excuse to make more quilts :)

You groovy quilt is fantastic.

Karen said...

Brrr...! But I agree that it does give you inside time for sewing.
Love seeing all the projects. I like the idea of grid quilting the twister block.

Lisa said...

I just adore the MoMo fabrics. Your quilt colours are fabulous. Love the twirls!

Jo said...

I do like your Groovy Kind of Love Quilt. I wish I had taken part now! The backing fabric looks fun :)
