Off to a Good Start!

 Good morning , sweetie pies.   Did you have a very Happy New Year's Day?

  Eeeh!  We had our traditional New Year's Day meal - black eyed peas, turnip greens and  hog jowl!! It's hubby's favorite meal of the year. 

 Did you ring in the new year?  Being a night owl. I certainly did. I worked on Notforgotten Farms' Snow Pants . 

This was gifted  to me by my sweet friend, Patricia.  I finished him and and stitched him into a simple pillow. Isn't he a quirky little guy?  I love him!❤⛄❤

I'm off to a great start.   

Today, I plan to  begin Bent Creek's The Red Thread "Snowman". 

This was a sweet gift from my friend. PJ.  He certainly looks like a happy snowman. 

 As for quilting-  I am putting "Winter" in the hoop. 

 Yesterday , I dipped into the scrap bin for  some homespuns and shirtings. 

I am preparing for a quilt to join in the Tablescraps Challenge with Joy at The Joyful Quilter.  January's theme is SNOWMEN. 

What are you going to be up to? Stitching , quilting or something totally different?  Well I hope it is something fun. 

As always...

Happy quilting and stitching, ya'll

How many birdies do you see? 


  1. I see 2 birds. Your newest little pillow is very cute, happy stitching on Winter!

  2. Happy New Year, Melisa! Your Quirky Snowman is adorable. Well done on your finish! I started Gathering Snowflakes by Luminous Fiber Arts as my January 1st start. We stayed up, toasted in the New Year and went to bed. Russ can have my portion of your meal; not a fan!

  3. 2 birds! Love your Winter quilt. Today it is putting the fence up around the garden and planting for winter I think. I also need to pick up and clean my home office! And sew of course - by machine and hand.

  4. Love your snowman with the boots! What fun!

  5. Love all of your makes - Happy New Year, Melisa.

  6. Your New Year sounds like it's off to a great start, Melisa! Love that little snowman with his high-heeled boots :) I've not stitched in over two weeks as my grandson and his mom and dad were visiting. Oh, how I miss my stitching time! Tonight I'll finally be able to relax in my stitching chair after I finish catching up on the laundry and cleaning--hooray! ♥

  7. Lovely winter stitching projects planned. I spotted two birds.

  8. Thanks for the shout out, Melisa! Just a reminder, the SNOWMEN prompt is only a suggestion. It's not a requirement for participation in the January 2022 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge. SEW glad that you are playing along, though!!

  9. I spotted 6, maybe 7 a few in the leaves in the background. I had a quite (except for the neighbor's fireworks exhibition) mu car alarm only went off 7 times, LOL. All was good, my neighbor brought over delicious beef tacos and a lovely glass of wine. Trying to plan out what I want to accomplish stitch wise and quilt wise this year. We will see if I make my goals of 2022. Your snowmen are adding up, they are a very handsome bunch. Hugs from Arizona

  10. A finish on New Year's? What a great way to end and begin a year. Happy 2022! Looking forward to seeing more fun stitcheries and quilty stuff.
