A Little Swoon
Brrrr...still freezing outside. I walked to the mailbox and my breath fogged up my glasses. Immediately they turned to ice. That has never happened to me before. Some of my son's friends are showing videos of themselves opening the door and throwing a pan of boiling water outside. The water instantly turns to snow. We can't be out for more than a few minutes, but the sweet little birds continue to flit past my window. God's provisions for his creatures is amazing.
I started to work on a mini Swoon quilt for the doll quilt swap I'm participating in. This pattern is really fun. The pieces are tiny, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches. The block measures 8 1/2 inches. I hope my swap partner will like it!
I'm missing all the Christmas decorations and put out the few winter ones I have. I really need to make some winter wall hangings or something. My favorite snowman sits on a church pew in the entrance way. I got him at a craft fair years ago. He makes me smile. Have a wonderful day today, friends!

Love the swoon blocks I think your swap partner will be pleased! Mr Snowman is very handsome!ReplyDelete
I have always loved snowmen and love that you can display them after Christmas too. Your house looks warm and cozy even thought it is colder than ever outside. I was born in Illinois and remember the cold winters. Your swoon blocks are perfect. I don't think I could do such small pieces. Brrrrr....stay warm.ReplyDelete
Love your fabric choices for your blockReplyDelete
Earl was walking by as I started reading your post, he really loves your quilt block, lol and so do I! I'm sure looking forward to temps in the 40's this weekend:>)ReplyDelete
This post is too cute to handle! Swoon!! LOVE that new block, and such gorgeous prints too! And i'm just adoring that wedding dress! Love your cute winter decorations, and such a sweet snowman :) He puts a smile on my face too! xo HollyReplyDelete
The Mini swoon pattern+ your fabric = perfect!!!ReplyDelete
Great post and yes(!) it is VERY cold in Michigan but so beautiful, too! LOVE that little black/white scissor "shirting" fabric you used on that block. Adorable and perfect for its partners!ReplyDelete
During the coldest days here my very dear friend, who also cleans house for me every two weeks, called me to say she couldn't clean my glass door because every time she sprayed it froze! :) blessings, marleneReplyDelete
Love love your little swoon block... Hope to tackle the big one this year!!! Happy 2014 to you!!ReplyDelete
Your swoon block looks great. I know your partner is just going to love it. We are having a beautiful day today. Beautiful clear skies and I am even wearing shorts. You just never know with Texas weather. lolReplyDelete
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
I love the little block you have created and especially love the name...most definitely something to swoon over! I forget that other parts of the country are experiencing such frigid weather.ReplyDelete
After several weeks of "colder than normal" temps, we are now in the 60s. Too warm for this time of year!! We're actually hoping that it will cool down some before the greenery starts sprouting and then we get hit with a hard freeze or worse...ice, which is known to happen too often around here.
