Turtle paper piecing

Here is a turtle from Quilt Art Designs BOM that I paper pieced. It is January's block. I haven't PP in a while so I have a few oopsies but know no one will know but me.  Next up is a cute sea lion...think I will do that one too.

New stars and BOM start....

Here are my Time Warp Stars for the Madder style prints.

I started my Laundry Basket BOM Flower Baskets from Homestead Hearth. I am doing this by hand and am using the LB paper pieces. They have cute sayings on the back but are thinner than I am used to working with.

I have all 6 diamonds laid out and ready to piece on batting boards that I made from cardboard my friend "Sarah no blog" gave me.  They really work great for these types of projects.  Off to go stitch more.

Well since I have been taking it easy, I have been knitting.  I participated in a Mystery Knit Along.  Each week we got a clue for a section to make.  I learned all new stitches and got a cowl to boot.

Well it is snowing here in North Louisiana!  Everything shuts down pretty much if there is a hint of ice or snow.  This is a good thing. I do love how pretty the snow looks, but hate it when DH has to go back and forth to work in it. He did say he would come home early today.
Been knitting and glad I finished my "cold snap" hat by the Plucky Knitter on Ravelry.  I took a picture of it on the deck where the snow can be seen in the background. The hat is nice and warm.
Here are Toby's footprint and Peanut's.  Love the contrast. Toby likes the snow and Peanut is not too sure of it...the pugs will have nothing to do with it and it is like pulling teeth to get them even to go out to do their business.  Hope all of you are nice and warm.

Here are my double pink stars for BB Time Warp Stars.  Love making these and learning about the historic fabric.

I See You!

Oh how I wish "I See You" was a fun game to play...unfortunately it was more this type of "ICU" I was in for.  I was there for 3 days and then 2 days in the normal hospital part.  I am better, but it was scary.  I go see a regular doctor today to check that I am doing better.  Just getting older and the body is letting me know.  So on to more positive things....
I have made some more of the Time Warp Stars.  I am hunting for the latest just right "solid green".  But here are others I have completed.
Prussian Blue
Chrome Orange or Cheddar
