A Fresh Snow…Finally My Day…

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

Felted WoolAnd sadly.. I have nothing… literally, I hate to blame it on the move, but I have not been able to finish a single solitary thing for this hop.. When we got our things I was so excited to finally have everything again, but I forgot that perhaps my hubby would like his clothing, or I would like a better change of clothes, that the kitchen to needed to be unpacked. Over the years of living overseas, I have gotten slower in how I do things, and get them done, so unpacking has gone slowly.  I don’t even have my sewing machines up yet in my sewing room. I was lucky enough to have Joan from Moose Stash Quilting come for a day last week and she really got me in gear to get my sewing room up and running and over the weekend I managed to get my desktop in place. Then comes the process of having to transfer everything from the laptop to the desktop.. 

So, instead, Continue reading

A Fresh Snow Day 03 It’s Looking Rainy Today…

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

A Fresh Snow Blog HopHi Everyone, I would take rain, the little sprinkles falling on the ground, the dance of the leaves, grass, and ground enjoying the wet wonderful water. 

Today is the 3rd day of the A Fresh Snow Blog Hop and didn’t you just love the projects yesterday, oh my gosh, I was in total awe.  I am running terribly late this morning… I took a little nap after having gotten up this morning at 2:30am to write this post. I seem to be on a bedtime by 8pm agenda since moving back to the states and up by 2 – 3am.. At times tho my body just feels so tired that I’ll take a nap and that’s exactly what happened this morning.. So here I am back and forth this morning. Figured I’d get this done between naps.. so here we go…

A Fresh Snow Day 02 – Still No Snow :/

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

A Fresh Snow Blog HopHere we are in the middle of January, and we still have no snow… This is Colorado people, known for it’s infamous ski resorts, I live so close to them I can literally taste the snow on the top of Pikes Peak and yet… down at my house, there is sadly, still no snow… We did have a “pinch” of snow last Friday and were promised another inch over the weekend, but it never came. I really miss the snow when it’s not on the ground. It is different when you live in an area not known for snow, you don’t really expect snow to come, so when it does it’s a lovely surprise that amazes and astounds you at it’s sheer beauty. Who would think all that white everywhere could just makes things look so clean and quiet and astoundingly beautiful.

Last Friday, we had some beautiful projects in the blogs that were featured and I’m so looking forward to today’s featured bloggers, so without further ado, here is today’s schedule:

A Fresh Snow Day 01 – and sadly, no snow today here in CO :/

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

A Fresh Snow Blog HopWell it’s still dark outside as I write this post this morning… and est time is 6:13 am… It’s very quiet here in the mornings, my hubby is still up in bed and I’ve got a few moments to get this post written very quickly for you.

I’m so excited you’ve stopped in today to visit for the first blog hop of the year. A Fresh Snow came from the idea for me when I ws working to get Wooly Block kits. I honestly had no intention of even participating in the event, but when I was sewing clothing the one fabric I loved working with was wool, then when we heard about the move to Colorado, that’s when I really decided that yep, I was going to participate, how lovely would it be to have a new quilt for my new home. Today isn’t my day and my project isn’t done, so I’ll be hopefully sewing on it all weekend long.. My friend Joan was here yesterday and it was so much fun meeting and chatting with her. She really got the everything in place for me to set my machines and desktop up, so I’m going to get that finished up this weekend.

A Fresh Snow Schedule and Quilt Qwazy Queens 2017

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

It’s that time of year again… today I’m writing you with a preview of the schedule for A Fresh Snow.. the blog hop coming in just 9 more days now. I hope you will enjoy this fresh look on Winter with projects that are featured by not only using cotton, but other fabric choices to. The projects don’t have to use any cotton, or they can have some cotton, but the main objective is to feature fabrics in projects that are not necessarily all cotton.

So without further ado, Continue reading

Wooly Block Adventure… Are You In????

Wooly Block Adventure

Wooly Block AdventureHave you heard of the Wooly Block Adventure

Created by the same people who also coordinate the Row By Row Experience, it’s a fun smaller event that is in its infancy. I believe it’s in it’s second year, where earlier this year it had less than 50 shops participate. They apparently changed the dates and now there are just under 200 shops participating. I love the theme for this one, it is Winter Wonderland, and as you know I’m moving to a winter wonderland in Colorado later this month. I’m very excited because this is just the opportunity I need to create something new for our new home.

Recently I have been involved in hoping to accumulate some blocks from the Wooly Winter Block Adventure as I want to make a lappy or two for my new home in the Wonderful Winterland of Colorado. So this adventure is just the thing to wet my willy and get me sewing. I love wool, I love winter, and I’d love all or any of you to come along and participate with me. Let’s have some fun swapping blocks. I’ll pick up some blocks from some of my new local shops, and you pick up some of yours and we’ll trade…
