Hello, I'm Back

and no longer a Stampin' UP! demonstrator. It's a good thing, as much as I like sharing papercrafting and products, I found it hard to keep up and acquired a lot of stamp sets that I wasn't able to use. Plus I have other projects and hobbies I like and my personal blog is the perfect place to share what I've been making, sewing and cooking, like I use to when I first started this blog. I hope you stick around. Plus I still have cards to make!

My Cozy Christmas blocks

So far I've completed the first three blocks from the Cozy Christmas Sew-a-long, which started a few years ago, but I just started this year. I'm a little slow, I figure that I was going to do a block a month, but life is a little crazy, so I'll be making this quilt at my own pace.

I started with machine applique on the first block, but I decided that hand applique looks better. So I may redo the first block or just leave it as is. Hand applique isn't as hard as it seems, plus its good practice for me to do something new and very relaxing.

Thanks for stopping by.
