It was a great meeting last night for the hearty souls who braved the cold. We have such a nice group! I will remind every one later in February too but at our next meeting we will be doing a Make and Take project that can be finished at our meeting. You will need to bring scissors, sewing needle, and some off white or white thread.
Riley Blake Designs has a new block of the month for 2014 and its about celebrating the holidays with fabric and especially birthdays. The first block has been posted; it's an ice cream cone block which is very sweet.
You can also watch a video on sewing this block here. You can also check out their many videos at this site and they are nice. I thought this crochet hook cozy was especially nice and a great idea as I tend to lose these. Would make a great gift for a friend who crochets too.
Check out We All Sew for this beautiful wool pillow that features a snowflake. I really like the simplicity of this. I believe this site is a Bernina blog and has a lot of quilting and sewing information. The Polka Dot Chair has a wonderful post about Hawaiian quilts and the process of making them. Love them and the colors and makes me feel warmer already. There are many links at the end of that post to take you to other informative places regarding the Hawaiian quilt style. She also has a project at the Moda Bake Shop for a personalized pillow that is so sweet. So check out Polka Dot Chair for a fun blog.
Just for giggles, I loved this Snoopy Quilt. Really cold again this morning so stay warm. Diana
