Green/Red and White!

The snowmen received their carrots 
and the mystery item on the lathe yesterday is a Gnome! 
 I had fun making the beads for his nose and hat tip,
 well , every part, in fact! 
 I found the wood burning tools
 but not my assortment of tips
 so I am going to have to wait for that to happen.
As soon as it warmed up a bit, 
I went out and refilled the birdfeeders
 and then 'planted' the latest stepping stone.
I'm also changing out my hanging plants
 so I can put my blooming Christmas cactuses on display!
I also loaded up the Hunter Star 
 but now it will sit until I am inspired!  
I don't have a lot of time to languish over this decision!



  1. about swirls, like a frosty winter wind blowing over the stars?! The circular lines would also play nicely over the geometric piecing. (Not that you asked for an opinion — ha!) The gnome and snowmen are really fun! David is on a huge woodworking kick now and just bought wood for a new project. He’d probably have a blast playing on the lathe! Lovely outdoor photos, too.

  2. The gnome (I had guessed what it would be!!) looks so cute with your snowmen. Nice job!

  3. Love the new blog header! I never would have guessed a gnome - he’s adorable.

  4. (Mom, this is a test to try to figure out the problem with my commenting -- does this show up differently than it usually does?!)

  5. I think that the gnome is so cute. I was guessing a Christmas tree so I was completely wrong! Ha! The little carrot noses are so cute too. I would be afraid to touch the quilt. I have only hand quilted the ones I made. I am amazed at how many things you excell at. I seem to be mediocre at everything and master of none.

I brought these blocks home leftover from a quilt Mom had made several years ago.  It will make a nice table topper for her.   I will be lay...
