Now the outer red border is attached on three sides already. You just can't tell because of the new slipcover I recently bought for my sofa. I laid the completed rows out on the back of the sofa. The red border matches the color of the sofa! There will be another wider blue border that I will attach later, after we receive some applique portions for that one.
A cute little crown for the snow princess! I love the heart button wand (thanks, Isabelle!) that has been waiting in my stash for just the perfect place. :)
Now I have just enough snowmen blocks to complete two whole rows along with the Irish Chain blocks on the quilt....hmmmm....should I do it....or wait?

Now I am off to trace and cut the pieces for the next Snowbound block!

Hi, Ineke....here's the link to the Weihenburg Designs group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wiehenburg-samplers/
Joining the group is free, as is signing up for the contest sampler SAL. You have to request the chart, however, and one with your name is sent directly to you.

:(( :(( :(( That's me...pouting. On my Weihenburg contest sampler...I am just not happy with the Belle Soie Rose of Sharon thread. Don't get me wrong~I think it looks fine when it is stitched. However....there are these "shadows" that are beginning to show up on the darkest portion of the red where it is stitched. Almost like a halo effect...or as if I had stitched it once and removed the stitching....those kind of shadows. I think the thread is bleeding into my fabric from me handling it while I stitch. Not a good thing, since there are only two motifs stitched and a lot more to go. It will look like a total blur by the time I am done. (I know it doesn't show well on this photo, but believe me..it's there, and I think it will just get worse as I go along.)
:)) :)) :)) I'm happy now that I can continue with the sampler without having to constantly worry about the red thread.

It's official....yep....spring has definitely sprung around here. I have some serious spring fever. Don't get me wrong...I'm stitching..I'm quilting...but for some odd reason...I have not been on the computer much at all. Doing a few "spring cleaning" type things around the house....new curtains for the bedroom...a new shelf for the bathroom. That kind of stuff. Hopefully, I will feel like taking a few pictures of some of my progress on a few different projects....like: Three French Hens by Nora Corbett....the Weihenburg SAL Contest sampler..a few blocks for my All Cooped Up quilt....See? I have been busy...just haven't felt like blogging lately. Back (hopefully) with some pictures soon. :)
