Hopping to Rehab

It's not to late to join in the fun and beat the Winter Blues!   I still have a lot of hopping to do.  It was just to pretty outside this weekend and I celebrated a birthday as well!  I love exploring new blogs and seeing what everyone is creating.   Head over to Quilting Gallery for the list of participating blogs.  I've seen some great giveaways.  Maybe the luck of the Irish will be with you!!

I did spend a little time in BOM rehab and made one little block for the Country Threads BOM.    We have three blocks to do this month.  Looks like I will  need to have some extended rehab time......the first month of another BOM came in the mail Saturday.....Peppermint and Holly.....Yes, it does have a holiday theme!!

I was a little disappointed in it though.  Not the pattern...Love the quilt... The book, Quilting the Garden by Barb Adams, Alma Allen, and Ricki Creamer was included in the first month with 3 pieces of red fabric. The fabric was beautiful so no problems there.  The way the shipments are set up it will take about 4 months to get enough fabrics to start a block.  Not a typical BOM...Guess they think I should finish up some of the other ones before starting a new one!!!   There are so many wonderful projects in the book, I may just have to start one of them while I wait.  If you like applique, you may like this book.  The photography is beautiful and the book is full of gardening ideas as well.

Here is my little 6 inch Ohio Star block.  It is resting beside a little box I found this weekend.  Sunday afternoon, we decided to go to the farmers market and get some plants after preparing the beds on Saturday.  Before heading back home, we stopped at a nearby antique mall and made a quick visit.   (Wanted to get those plants in the ground!)   I found this cute little box.  It isn't that old, but it will be perfect in my sewing room.

 I just noticed I had a picture saved of the Peppermint and Holly quilt.  

See why I'm anxious to get it started!!!
Follow me to see who else spent some time in Rehab this weekend!



  1. That box is a great find! It will be perfect for your sewing room Debbie! That Blackbird Designs quilt has always been one of my favorites for Christmas... it just looks so festive with the stripe borders!
    I am glad that we are able to start our planting and other preparations for Spring!

  2. Happy Belated Birthday!
    Love the peppermint quilt, that is a beautiful quilt and fun for a Christmas wall hanging.
