I SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN  SURPRISED , AFTER ALL IT IS THE MIDDLE OF JANUARY.  YESTERDAY WE AWOKE TO AT LEAST  2 INCHES OF THE WHITE STUFF ,FINALLY COVERING UP ALL THAT BROWN.  WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY  WINTER WHITE!

THIS IS JANUARY'S FREE  BOM FROM THE RASPBERRY RABBIT. I HAVE IT ALL LAID DOWN  AND I HAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF STITCHING STARTED.  IT IS SO CUTE I JUST COULDN'T RESIST. SO HOP ON OVER AND TAKE A PEEK.  I AM SO USED TO HAVING TO REVERSE THE PATTERN MYSELF BECAUSE MOST PATTERNS DON'T DO IT FOR YOU. THAT I DIDN'T NOTICE UNTIL IT WAS TO LATE THAT SHE HAS ALREADY DONE THAT FOR YOU. SO DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE.  I FIGURE HARRINGTON AND HANNAH RABBIT ARE JUST TAKING TURNS SITTING ON OPPOSITE SIDES.


GOT MY EIGHTH BLOCK OF HENRIETTA WHISKERS BY ANNE SUTTON DONE.  I DECIDED I DID NOT LIKE WINDOW PANES EMBROIDERED ON. SO I JUST EMBROIDERED THE LEAF VINE IN.  NOW ON TO BLOCK NINE.


I MADE THESE TWO SMALL BAGS FROM A PATTERN IN THE NEW QUILTMANIA MAGAZINE THAT JUST CAME OUT.  THEY ARE ABOUT 6 1/2 BY 7 1/2 WIDE.  I MADE A FEW OF MY OWN CHANGES.  NO OPEN ENDED TWO  JACKET  ZIPPER. ,  USED JUST A REGULAR DRESS ZIPPER 20 IN. LONG  ,CUT IT OFF TO FIT.  ALSO HER METHOD OF DOING THINGS  ,  MAKES YOU WORK HARDER FOR THE SAME EFFECT.  TAKE YOUR  COPY TO PRINTER AND HAVE THEM MAKE YOU ANOTHER COPY.  USE THE PRINTER'S COPY AS A PAPER PIECE PATTERN AND THIS PROJECT WILL GO A LOT FASTER AND NO MEASURING THREE TIMES AND IRONING TWICE AND SEWING TWICE FOR EACH STRIP!!  I ONLY SAID TO MAKE YOURSELF ANOTHER  COPY SO THAT YOU WILL HAVE THE OTHER AS A MASTER AND CAN MAKE AS MANY AS YOU WOULD LIKE BY MAKING MORE COPIES.

KEEP YOURSELF IN STITCHES,AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY! MARTHA
