Toyland Tree

Hello Everyone,

Now don't get upset when I bring this subject up.....but it is only 211 days until Christmas. In the world of quilting, this equates to a nanosecond. It is hard to believe that next week it will be June when it looks and feels like December outside. There should be patio furniture out on the deck but it is still safely stored away from the hail and rain.

So since it feels like December, I started designing and making a new Christmas quilt. I brought up just a few Christmas fat quarters with me and started in.
I'm not really a pink person, but I do love pink and brown together. I love those plaids, checks and stipes too.

I broke down and purchased a light table and I'm loving it. My arms don't get nearly as tired and I can now work on the preparation of the applique pieces at night.'s the outcome of my stormy day projects.

The next time you see this little bear, she will have eyes. This doesn't come remotely close to the bears we have lurking around the cabin. If the bears looked this cute, everyone would be feeding them.

The little marionette needs some hair. Maybe some gold french knots are in his future.

I'll be adding some whiskers on this little snout.

I have some more blocks drawn, but I don't have enough fabric with me to pull another block together.....well on second thought, maybe I do.

Hope the sun is shining where you are.

As always,


  1. Lynn; They both are just to adorable for words. Can't wait to see what you come up with next. No sunshine here either.
    See you soon.
