Happy Holidays!

Yikes!  It's been almost 2 months since my last post on here.  But don't think that my lack of posts has meant I haven't been busy.  Right after I finished the last quilt I blogged about, I started to think and get supplies for my major endeavor--the surprise Christmas quilt. I've decided that everyone in my family will have a quilt made for them by me, so this one is for my Uncle.  I'll only show a brief picture, the finished quilt will be discussed around New Years, after it's given to him.  Think lots of embroidery and quilting.  This will be my first time using stencils for quilting and it's starting to be a challenge!

In-between working on this, I've also made a few things.  One, a quilt for sale at my Etsy shop, CozyCrafts.  'Sleepy time Blanket' is made from a nice printed jersey material backed with a soft fleece-like material.  Nice and cozy and lightly quilted.   Christmas has also come early this year for me--in the form of Black Friday Sales, at Accuquilt.  An Accuquilt GoBaby was just right and with some practical dyes on sale, BAM! Merry Christmas to me!  And you know what goes well with an Accuquilt GoBaby?  Why some Robert Kaufmann Kona solids from the Fat Quarter Shop!  *_*   An extremely happy quilter will probably not leave her workshop for quite some time.

The two square bundles are called Fat Quarters, and the round roll is a Jelly Roll, long strips of fabric that are pre-cut for quilting that uses strips in the design.   The more jewel tone bundle is called Berry, the larger pink tower is Pretty Peony and the Jelly Roll is new Dusty Pallette.  I'm already envisioning what quilts I'll be making with these lovelies--so many choices!  More updates to come once the Holidays wind down!  Happy Holidays to everyone!

P.S.  I've joined the Twitter revolution.  Check me out @CozyCrafts2684!
