Pillow Talk

It's finally warmed up a bit here. There was a beautiful sunset last week. I've been in cozy mode for the past couple weeks, double socks everyday. I was so happy to find pink tulips at the store earlier this week. They make me so happy. I'm not usually one to pick a word for the year but I think if I were to pick one it would be cozy. I'm aiming for making and knitting cozy things all this year. I'm off to a good start so far.
 I finished my english paper pieced pillow and already started another with scraps. Its been banished to my couch in the office because my hubby can only handle so much floral and pink. 
I also finished my quilt, my sewing machine never saw so much action in one day. I was determined because among allllll the knitting & crochet wips, I have 2 other quilt tops that need finished. I was on a 30's fabric kick over the summer and I would love to hand quilt those but that takes time. In the mean time I need to piece just one more carpenter block and then I will have a table runner. I love the 30's fabrics. Just love them! 
The other pillow that I need to finish is a little cute tilda house. Its this pattern and I used some of my precious tilda that I hoard like a hoarder whose life depends on hoarding. Seriously, Its so hard for me to break into my liberty & tilda stash, its just sooo pretty! Foundation paper piecing is fun once you get the hang of it, I definitely need more practice but this pattern was simple enough even for a newbie.
As if telling you all I didn't have enough crafty things going on I decided to use up some minis and started knitting a log cabin square, the goal is to make it into a pillow. Its so addictive I can't put it down.
I have a new sock pattern that I am just writing up and should be available soon. If you have not cast on some socks for the instagram knit along there is still plenty of time, the kal runs till the end of February. If you aren't on instagram  just make sure you add the hashtag #thlsockalong on your ravelry page so I can find the project. 


  1. Beautiful work! Great photos! Looks like January is going well for you! Now that you mentioned 30's fabric I want to see more of it. Have a great weekend.

  2. Sigh. Gorgeous photos. Eye candy. I want to learn paper piecing. And I'm going to knit your socks. Both new patterns . I'm just finishing up two wips first.

  3. Everything does look cozy and welcoming,your pink socks are very pretty.

  4. What is the House quilt block pattern? It looks darling.

  5. So cozy, and beautiful color palette, but the stitching on the house and the pieced blocks, wow!! Gorgeous. Great work, as always. I don't have time for socks this month, I am working on a never-ending jacket. :(

  6. Naturally, I love the socks like crazy. But then there's that adorable Maggie -- what a doll.
