So much stitching!

There are only a few more weeks until I go to the Dallas show, so we have been busier than ever trying to get ready.  Here are some pendants that we finished this weekend  - these are all 1 1/4".

 And a few more...Take note of the piece of wool they are on...

 I have way too many wool applique projects in the works.  Lat night I finished stitching my 3rd block from Home for the Holidays by Primitive Gatherings.  See that helpful little kitty paw in the corner!?
 I finally took the time to prep the first 2 blocks from Buttermilk Basin's free sew along.'s that wool again!  Mr. Snowman is plaid...
 This one looks weird to me - the scarf is covering up part of him, and I keep thinking that he looks like he's missing a chunk. Too late to change it now - it is stuck down with Steam a Seam!

 I've been having a lot of problems with my feet, and was sitting with these ice packs for awhile last night.  I shoved them aside (when my feet had turned into ice cubes) and the next thing I knew, Ozzie was resting against them - wonder if he had a sore shoulder?  Silly cat.

Back to plan is to finish and print Patriotic Pineapples today!  Hopefully by tomorrow the pattern will be for sale on my website.
Have a great day!


  1. Such pretty pendants, Julie! I love the black and pink kitty pendant you made for me! He reminds me of the dear black kitties who have graced my life. Ozzie looks so cute curled up to those ice packs! My cats gravitate to anything new in their path, too. Sorry to hear your feet have been bothering you. Hope they feel better soon!

  2. Lots of great eye candy in this post! Your pendents are awesome, the Buttermilk Basin blocks are gorgeous, the pineapple quilt is wonderful and Ozzie is the best of them all!

  3. If you post what you are making for the next show it will all sell before you get there. : )
    Oh, love the plaid snowman!
    Hope it is nothing serious with your feet, girl. You need those things!
    Ozzie is just trying to be a cool cat. Sorry, couldn't resist.
    Wow--what a gorgeous pineapple quilt! How large are the pineapple blocks?

  4. Your snowmen look great! Pineapple quilt is stunning, Ozzie is your best helper

  5. So many beautiful projects in this post!! I love the fabric you're using for the new BB BOM. I can't wait for my kit to arrive with this month's block. :)
