Springtime at the Cottage

We've had a rainy spring in New England,
 but when we gather at the cottage everything is cosy.


 There is never a lack of new projects, laughter and conversation at the table.

Here are some of our most recent creations.

Anne has made some adorable hats,



done some wool appliqué


and some hand turned appliqué,


as well as some hand embroidery on a quilt.



Daphne completed this lovely pastel quilt,


and another one with woodland creatures.


Susie's design wall always has some interesting projects going on,


And she always has new quilts to share.

In this one, each square is hand appliquéd. 


Two pieced quilts,



and Susie's latest, with a seaside theme.


Pat has been working on a beautiful blanket.


And Jane created this hat,


as well as these beautiful girls' sweaters.


 Peggy made this lovely baby blanket


and a child's quilt.


Carol brought in a slightly oversized ball of yarn,


and completed two quilts.



Barbara shared more of her appliquéd shops,
 which will be part of a quilt.


Judy created this felt and wool centerpiece, part of a larger picture


as well as this woman with lace hair appliqué.


Flowers now greet us as we come up the path to the cottage,


we are having some sunny days
and it seems that spring is finally here,
as often happens in New England,
just in time for summer!


Thanks for stopping by and visiting.
Hope to see you again soon!

Happy Holidays!

To start off our holiday blog post,
here's a knitted Santa by Pat,
who said she would rather make 
100 bunnies before she makes another Santa!!
So cute!


Carol made this beautiful Christmas stocking,
with a flamingo and holly.


Also by Carol, these richly colored happy socks!


Judy made a textured applique snow scene
with embroidery and a bit of acrylic paint.


Back to Pat, who made these delicious
pizzelle cookies to share one Thursday morning.


Also a sweater by Pat, in process,


and a Christmas sweater for her grandson's bunny
which was also made by Pat!


It has been a wonderful year of creating 
around our creative table.
Thanks for visiting
and here's wishing everyone
a very happy and loving holiday season!!
