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!!

Creativity at the Cottage

The path to Freedom Cottage is now surrounded by flowers...

and there's always something new to share as we gather each week. New patterns, new projects, new ideas - so much productivity in our group. And yes, there are days when some of us just come to sit and chat, which is fine. Such a relaxed atmosphere.

Barbara's quit squares, storefronts embellished with names of local businesses, are coming along beautifully. We can't wait to see them assembled into a quilt and she feels the same way!

And a quilt block by Pat K!

Barbara's sister, Laura, visited from New York recently, and shared her pretty Tumbling Blocks quilt.

Carol has outdone herself, as usual, with quilts...

a beautiful knit blanket,

and this adorable little boy's sweater.

Peggy has been knitting a pretty blanket...

And Susie continues to wow us with her beautiful appliqué.

This is a just part of her design wall.

and these are elements of a quilt she is working on...

which includes beautiful hand appliqué.

Pat R made this lovely, soft scarf...

and this beautiful blanket.

Jane knit this handsome sweater,

these beautiful scarves,

and a collection of adorable "Lovies".

Anne's skills are far ranging - from this gorgeous sweater,

to culinary delights she spoils us with,

and a sweet handmade summer dress for a little girl.

Dottie is working on this scrumptious blanket,

and Judy is making little embroideries for a fabric book.

We continue to enjoy our time together,
creating new projects, which we're happy to share.

Thanks so much for visiting!!
