Oxford Lane Quilt by Sweetwater Co

Hello All,

I was reading some of my previous post from years back this evening. It sure is funny when you find all the mistakes. Like calling a coach a couch. That was probably the most hilarious 😂 one I came across. Well at the time I typed it it must have seemed right! 😝 LOL! I’m not going to feel bad because I’m not the best writer and especially do not notice mistakes right away. That’s just me and I’m ok with that. I think being perfect, and nobody is, but it seems so many think they are would be rather boring and stiff don’t you think?
I started this sweet quilt on New Year’s Day, it’s called Oxford Lane by Sweetwater. I talked about this quilt in my last post.
This photo is owned by Sweetwater Co the designers of the quilt. 

Above is what my quilt will look like when I’m finished. It’s so cute these darling stacked houses.
I made an error on mine and ended up with 3 skinny houses next to each other.  Who cares I still love it.

Just making a January update to my blog. I’ll be back next month with photos from our camping trip to Monterey. We plan on a 4 day trip there soon.
Tomorrow I’m going to buy a new sewing 🧵 machine. Still keeping the Babylock Elissimo Gold 2 and my Juki. The new sewing machine I’m getting tomorrow is a floor model. It’s also an embroidery machine, although not uptown like my Elissimo Gold 2. I am purchasing the new machine for less than $700.00. It will be a great machine to carry along on trips and sewing events. I’m not sure what the regular price is, but I’ll be back to post about it. I think the name of it is Babylock Verve.
So who knows maybe I’ll post again very soon.
Have a happy week!

Happy New Year January 2019, New Quilt, Oxford Lane by Sweetwater,

Our First Christmas Photo of 2018

Just before Christmas I found these super cute slices of thin wood to cross stitch. I got them from Joann's.

My Quilt I am working on by Sweetwater. I think Edee and Effie approve. I have the top of it half done. Each section is the one where Edee is, (first photo) a little neighborhood. It looks a bit to much to me right now, busy, but all put together with the borders it is super cute. 

This year I will only be making 4 quilts, last year I did 8. This year I will be adding to my Etsy shop and KrystalKats website my hand stamped personalized art to my shops. 

These are the snowmen I will be adding to my shops

Hand Stamped Snowflakes

More hand-stamped items to come!
