I have to tell you that this week has been an interesting one. A whopper of a snowstorm had us stuck in the house for a couple of days, the power went out for part of that time, classes at the university were cancelled so I got to enjoy unexpected time with the hubby at home. And then came Thanksgiving. I just had to be realistic and say that this week was not going to see any further work on my Little Bo Peep quilt.
We do however have a winner to announce. Congratulations Carol A.!!! You have won that wonderful box of goodies from Apliquick!
So whatever this week has found you facing I hope that you are safe and warm.
We will move on with Little Bo Peep next week and a brand new giveaway as well.
We are having a white Thanksgiving. It remains to be seen whether we will be able to head out to join our friends for the big meal. It may end up being just my beloved husband and myself-but that is fine too. Among my many blessing from God is a man who is a joy to be with.
One of my favorite things to do when it is snowing is capture photos of the birds in my backyard. And we had a LOT of them while it was snowing.
The usual morning crew...
One of the things I am thankful for this year is you. I started designing patterns almost two years ago and it has been an absolute joy to quilt along with you. So I wanted to take a moment today to tell you thank you for inviting me in to your quilting life.
I hope you have a blessed day.
Busy morning here in Southern Oregon. The snow has started to fall and the temps are below freezing. Mornings like this see me out thawing the water that I keep out for the birds as well as making sure feeders are full and the hummingbird feeders are not frozen. We have Anna's Hummingbirds through most of the winter. They show up at the feeders at the crack of dawn. Birds in the winter are such a bright spot and I enjoy sipping a cup of hot tea and enjoying them in my backyard.
I said I would have the rest of Week 2 ready for you today so here ya go...It is coming along nicely. I hope you are enjoying your time with this pattern too.

It has been one of those weeks where the best laid plans did not really work out.
I have come to rely on my personal technology and when it goes bad it does not mess around.
Thankfully I have a beloved hubby who has loaned me his laptop so I am back in the game,
To keep myself from succumbing to all the tech frustrations I stepped outside and visited some of my favorite places...all to soothe the soul.
I have another Giveaway for you to enter this week. I am very excited about this one. Be sure and read through to the end
Now on to our applique for this week. We will be working with those little sheep hiding in the hills. This is really where I think the Apliquick tools shine.

Pour yourself a glass of milk and let me introduce you to this month's Block.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. Now granted these were not my favorite, as they were lacking chocolate. But how wonderful they made the house smell when mom baked up a batch, and if she allowed us to eat one while still warm.... well that was a pretty special treat.
This block may look complicated, but is made with very simple piecing techniques.
Get ready to make some Half-square-Triangles. They go together into so many combinations which makes them really fun to play with.
You can get your copy of the pdf pattern free for a limited time by clicking the link below.
Block 10: Oatmeal Raising Cookie
My pattern testers did a great job with their blocks this month too and I love seeing each one's take on color choices.
You may already have a favorite tried and true Oatmeal Cookie Recipe. I found one that I have printed off to try from Sommer Collier of A Spicy Perspective. I am looking forward to filling my home with this sweet smell. Oh, and browsing her site leads to lots of other sweet recipes too.
I hope you enjoy some time in your own quilting space. This one rather reminds me of my grandmother and her special place in a house where she raised 8 children during the depression. As a child I spent lots of time working the treadle on her sewing machine and who knew where those early days would lead me.
