New International Siggy Swap Siggy!!

With my two moves these past few months and everything else that seems to be keeping me from quilting, I could not find my little International Siggy Swap siggies and so I decided that since I am soooooooooooooo far behind in returning siggies for the ones I have recieved since May, I decided I had better get to making a new one.


I have been so excited about seeing all the embroidery that is going on out there in Blogsville, I decided I wanted to do an embroidered siggy this time with a little beaded bee at the bottom.

The beehive is the Utah state emblem.  Here is a little blurb on the beehive from Utah.com ~


Emblem and Motto

Emblem and MottoThe Beehive and word "industry" became the official motto and emblem for Utah on March 4, 1959. Industry is associated with the symbol of the beehive. The early pioneers had few material resources at their disposal and therefore had to rely on their own "industry" to survive. The beehive was chosen as the emblem for the provisional State of Deseret in 1848 and was maintained along with the word "industry" on the seal and flag when Utah became a state in 1896.

Just My Luck!!

Wednesday morning the furnace did not seem to be heating the house so I thought maybe it just needed a tune-up ~


Well, nope - a piece was broken and the part had to be ordered from Salt Lake City.  So . .  . . . . . . .  here we are just hanging out and trying to keep warm until the part comes in tomorrow - I hope in the morning, so the furnace can be fixed by the end of the day!!

Please keep Pollie and me in your prayers that we don't freeze to death and even more that the part coming from the City is the one that fixes the furnace!!  Brrrrrrrrrrrr!!

I have been getting getting lots and lots of hexagon petals completed ~


and a couple of flowers plus I am catching up on all the fun christmas movies that have already started!!

New Quilt in the Making!!

I was putting some kits together for this darling new pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts for my eBay and Etsy shops ~
But I didn't think you could see the little 9-patches that go between the snowmen rows in the pattern very well, so I made up some of the blocks to add to the listings ~
Aren't they cute!!  Each little block is going be 3" square finished and they sit on point right next to each other.  All the fabrics are Moda Batiks designed by Laundry Basket Quilts and it is going to make a large lap quilt.

It's so nice to have a new project in the works!!
