A Good Start In January

It is a shame to invite folks to your blog (through Entrecard,Facebook,or Twitter) and not have been there that much myself. I vow to post more. The thing is, I just don't have a lot to say. But I want to thank all that have visited and left a comment. It helps.

I was reading someone's blog the other day and she was talking about that very thing and I realized that I am guilty of that same thing. It is like inviting someone to your house and not being home.

Today I thought I would post the latest quilt I have been working on. To start,the members of our quilt guild are required to make at least 4 cuddle quilts a year (these we donate to the Le Bonhuer) So anyway this is my first one for the year.
This was such a simple and fun quilt to make. I got the pattern from the Quiltville blog. If you ever want to learn how to do a certain block you can find it there with very easy instructions. Anyway once I made the first block, I could not stop until the quilt was finished. It is a small quilt only 48"X 48".
This is what one square looks like. I made 16 squares.

My quilting sister Mildred Puckett came over and showed me how to tie the quilt. Boy that saved a lot of time for me and I like the way it looks. I tied it with pink cotton crochet thread.

Now I know you will love this chenile pillow also. It will be listed for sale in my Etsy shop very soon. I will tell you that it is nice and big and fluffy. It is one of those pillows that you will want to hug when your (significant other) is not around.

I am trying to figure out what to do with this bag I made, I had some of the chenille leftover from the pillow so I decided to make this bag. This is as far as I got and now I don't know how I will do the handles. The ends are finished so I don't know what I am going to do with it so I am going to put it aside and do something else. Any suggestions?

This is one of the blocks for the quilt I am making for my granddaughter, it is a wonderful quilt that will look like a four story house when (whenever) I get done with it. But you can enjoy some of it now.

If you recognize what rooms these are, let me know then I will know that I am on the right track. Ha Ha.
Until next time, happy blogging!
