The Frosties were a slow stitching project for a long time last winter, and this winter they are finally sewn together, and sandwiched for quilting. This week I've had some time to actually work on the quilting!

January Table Scraps and the rest of the blues...
Last week I shared "Snow Goose," the Villa Rosa Designs project that I chose for the blog hop, which is all in dark blues and white. My full post about it is HERE.

I Like Thursday #320
It's been an interesting week at my house - bright and early on Monday morning I had my first cataract surgery! I really liked and appreciated the staff at the surgery center that's connected to my eye doctor's office. They were upbeat and efficient and very friendly! Everything seems to have gone just as it should.

Besides making sure my project and post for the blog hop were ready to go, this week I also finished up the Flake Family Portrait, an embroidery design by Melisa at PinkernPunkin Quilting. Melisa is so generous with sharing her embroidery and cross-stitch designs and I have a hard time resisting them!

Villa Rosa Designs Blog Hop!
Welcome to my day on the Villa Rosa Designs blog hop! I'm pleased to be able to join in by sharing one of their Fast and Fun designs. If you aren't familiar with Villa Rosa Designs, here's some great background information directly from the blog hop launch post at the link above.
"Villa Rosa Designs is the brainchild of owner and Rose Queen, Pat Fryer. Pat wanted to create Fast & Fun, affordable, and high quality patterns for quilters featuring precuts like 1/2 yards, fat quarters, 10″ squares, 5″ squares, 2 1/2″ strips, fat eighths, and fat sixths as well as other fabric cuts like panels and novelty fabrics."
When I saw the design called "Snow Goose," I knew it was one I wanted to make. This one makes a tablerunner, so definitely in the fast category, and a lot of fun because I could pull from my dark blue scraps, too.
