Handmade Coasters with Crocheted Edge

I've been on bit of a crocheting kick lately. I want to put a crocheted edge on EVERYTHING!!! It started with these ornaments I made. Now I'm making coasters for Christmas gifts. Super simple. I'll post a little quickie tutorial soon.

I also added a crocheted edge to the tea towel that Charise sent me. I love it! At this point nothing is safe from a crocheted edge!!!

*** My inspiration for the edgings came from Heather's beautiful handmades

Have a great week!

Quilt Barns

So I mentioned a long while ago about the Quilt Barns that are in the county where I live. I've started trying to get some better pictures of them.

At some point I'd love to have them all photographed but I think many are in inconspicuous areas. Here are two that are very near my home.
A pretty fall picture of a back road near our house. I'm pretty sure 99% of the roads where I live are back roads. I love them!

This one is on the ridge near our house. I really love this one. I wish I would have had my camera with me when we drove by this summer.

The loft doors were open and a horse was out front. Everything was green. It was really pretty. Maybe next year.

I love this view!

This one is really far away from the road. It's a Lone Star but it's hard to make out in this picture.

This one just snuck up on me! I remember after the fact, EVERY TIME! So I have to get a better picture of this one too.

There are so many more. I see them here and there.  There is a list of them I am going to have to get so that I can track them all down.

Of course no ride is complete without these pretty deer. Hey... you... you with the fur... are you the punk that ate my garden?

Lately, I've been thinking about organizing a quilt retreat. Maybe this spring? Just brainstorming. I'm kinda afraid I'll organize it only to end up eating brownies and sewing in my jammies all by myself. Oh, wait, that doesn't really sound too bad, does it?!

This and That ~ Swaps and a Little Quilt and The Quilty Fun Blog Tour info (lots of pictures)

Hey there! I hope you all are having a lovely weekend. I wanted to pop in and say hi and show a few things I have been up to lately. I made these little ornament for the Trim the Tree Handmade swap on flickr. I love the way they turned out! I had so much fun crocheting the scalloped edge around these little cuties.

I made quite a few more and listed them in my etsy shop. 

 There are more mushrooms! I just love these!


Then I had to make some little birdies too!

Love these 2 soft colored ones!

I think I'll keep making them for the holidays. So much fun!!!

I've also been working on these cute little twister hexies for The Pillow Talk swap on flickr. I think these will make a cute pillow.

Then lastly but not leastly, I had a custom order for a birdie quilt.

I used Lori Holt's quilty back pockets technique for hanging. It's really awesome.

Speaking of Lori. I am sure by now most of you have heard about the Quilty Fun blog tour.
Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet Co. published a really great book with Fat Quarter Shop.

I am so excited to be apart of the blog tour! I'll be making the Chubby Chevrons in week six of the tour. The tour has already kicked off with Kerry and her lovely apples!!! Monday is Amy's (nanaCompany) stop on the blog tour. This is so much fun and there are prizes too! Here is the breakdown of info!
