I'm a bit later this week with my post.

Winter lethargy set in me thinks. Snowy but with bright blue skies that make you long for spring.....sigh.

And, I also forgot to recharge my camera:)

Never is my Winter crazy quilt block. Just a wee bit more work on the motif  in the left hand bottom corner and I think it's done.

Double click to enlarge. 

I've also have been doing a some repairs which I hate....coat zippers. Two of them.....argghh.

One had a 36 inch zipper. I was lucky to find one on Etsy from a Canadian supplier.

The other is a very very bright hot pink. I could not find a replacement and had to make do with a pinky red. Not to worry though. It's for a three year old and if she gets some more wear out of it this winter all the best because next year it won't fit her.

I'm joining up with The Needle & Thread Network and Needlework Tuesday (late again).

Take care:)

    Food for Thought

  6. Love your winter crazy quilt block Mary Ann, so intricate and beautiful!

  7. Beautiful crazy block Mary Ann - really pretty.

  8. Love what you have done with your block. The beads are a wonderful detail. I like what they did to the edge of the lace, makes it look like rick rack. nicely done. I also have to stitch back in a zipper. It's my coat and the stitching came loose so I don't have to replace, just restitch. thank goodness. Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

  9. Ugh for coat zippers.....Your block is fantastic, may I post it to Facebook to the group I teach crazy quilting?

  10. The first words that came to mind were "sheer perfection". I love the colours and your embellishment is stunning.

  11. This is so pretty. Love the colours

  12. Great work Mary Ann! so cool its a good one for our -27 C today.! Thanks for participating, I'm going to post what the proposed whole four seasons quilt will look like today.


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
