    Yes, you have enough work planned for a couple of months! 😉 You have made beautiful quilts. I’m particularly curious about the snowman embroidery and the piles of lovely fabric beside it. Quite curious about what you’ll do with them!
    I also have many projects to finish (to piece, to quilt) to keep me busy for some time, like a winter quilt all ready to be quilted but waiting for inspiration.

      Thank you for stopping by.

      The embroidery project is a quilt called Winter Wonderland and it is a Crab Applehill pattern. The pattern shows it in red, but I am doing it in blues. It is similar to my Over the River and Through the Woods quilt I did shown here . It will take me a while as I can only hand sew for brief periods and I don’t do it often.

      I stopped by your site. I am like you, I hope to live a good many more years and I have too many ideas in my head that I want to do.
