I finished a block, a barn , and a skirt.

I started a new quilt. It's a scrappy spider web quilt. Funny because I really don't have many scraps, but I did scrounge up a few to make a whole block. So I plan on this quilt taking years, I'll just add to it and add to it as the years go by. Ignore the writing under the white star...it's my cable bill recycled. :o)

Here is my North Pole Reindeer Barn finished. I will be starting on Mr and Mrs. Clause house next.
And in my SWAP class ( sewing with a plan) I finished my wrap skirt. I just love it and it reminds me of spring.

Oh my gosh. You've been busy. Love the block - very cool. The house is great for your north pole quilt - I can't wait to see it all together. And the skirt....I am envious. I am horrible at sewing clothes -I can never get them to fit right. That looks so fun and springy. To bad it's supposed to snow here again this weekend:(
Happy Valentine's Day! And have a GREAT weekend!

Gorgeous scrappy block, I love it!!! That's a sweet skirt too, good for you!!! I'm dreadful at making clothes ... I gave up a long time ago.

Beautiful block. And I like the idea of adding to it when you have scraps without a deadline. Just seeing the fabric you choose through time could tell a story.

Adorable barn for the North Pole Quilt. I particularly like the weathervane!

And the skirt looks comfy as well as light and happy for spring.

Congrats on all you've gotten done! Good stuff.

I'm impressed with how much you've gotten done! And your spiderweb block looks like it will be an adventurous color palette for you. :-)

Spring indeed!--the skirt turned out so, so gorgeous.

And your scrappy spider web quilt is stunning. I love, love those cool fabric choices.
