Yesterday we had our first snow and….our satellite internet was out all day. Sometimes that can be a blessing – I did lots of cleaning in my quilt studio and setup my new backdrop in the spare bedroom. I’ll be sharing that later this week.
Anyway…..no internet so I decided to work on part 2 of En Provence as thankfully I had downloaded the directions. Magenta fabric…..I couldn’t believe that I didn’t have any! Actually, I had one very small piece and I didn’t want to go buy any so I looked at my batiks and found a perfect one. It took me just a few minutes to cut my pieces for En Provence Part 2 as I used my AccuQuilt Electric Cutter and the 3″ Triangle in a Square die. I was really tickled that we were making Triangle in a Square blocks as I really like this block and using the die makes it so easy.
After I finished the triangle in a square sections I started wondering if I should just go with a complete batik quilt so pulled out 2 neutrals for the blocks in part 1. I had the scrappy blocks done but I am sure I’ll find another project that I can use them for. When I sorted my fabrics I also realized I have very little purple in my regular quilt fabrics but lots in my batiks.Like any quilter…..I just had to play with the blocks a little… I can’t wait for part 3 of En Provence!
I am linking up with Bonnie’s En Provence Part 2 Linky Party.
Yesterday we had our first snow and we found out that obviously Sadie has been in snow before and….likes it! She rolled around a couple times. Doesn’t she look cute in her little sweater…..she still does not like to look at the camera.Just a few more because she is so cute! Like I said…..she doesn’t like to look at the camera.Holiday mug rugs in the snow, mug rugs are a perfect way to use leftovers. I opened my studio window and put them outside. It was still snowing! You can check out some of these mug rugs and tutorials.
Later I put the mug rugs on the window sill with some candles for a little Christmas decorating in my studio. You can even see me taking the picture.
