OK, I lied....

sorry 'bout that.  I was going to post my pictures yesterday, but got totally distracted with something new.  It's that SADD kicking in again...you know...Stitcher's Attention Deficit Disorder...;)  But, first here at least is a picture of the All Cooped Up quilt top...and, no, I didn't press it...sorry.  It is hanging by magnets on my closet doors in the bedroom.
And my Snowbound quilt top (although incomplete) was left at Bears Paw Fabrics.  The owner is interested in making a model for her shop and wanted to use mine for some ideas.  It'll be home soon, ready for the new block on the 5th of next month. :)

But I started a fun, new project....I initially was going to make one for a friend of mine as a gift.  She collects anything and everything snowmen related.  It is a snowman Advent calendar.  Too cute.  So after buying the needed felt at Bears Paw yesterday, I came home and traced a lot of snowballs. Since I decided to also make one for myself...50 snowballs to be exact...plus 50 linings for the snowballs and 50 little, tiny snowmen heads as well as cutting 50 little scarfs for these chilly guys. :)  Here's a link to the finished product  :Chilly Willies (my nickname for these little guys). 
Here's a picture of my 50 little snowballs with the embroidery started for all the numbers:

And, now onto all the blanket stitching and embroidery!

OMG I so want this quilt! I think you began working on it around the same time I started following your blog. I just love batik and these colors that much! :D Awesome work, and I love the advent calendar you're planning.

I really like your top with Roosters. I have some rooster pillow panels, now you have given me an idea on how to use them. Thanks for the inspiration.
