Craft Corner

1. Snowbound -- this is a free block a month pattern put out by Bunny Hill. The idea is to do a quilt block a month in order to have a beautiful snowman quilt done in time for Christmas! While we won't be entertaining thoughts of snowmen at Christmas here in Tassie, I'm delighted to find a free snowman quilt pattern! My quilt will clearly be more useful in July, and I can't wait to see the finished project!

2. Crocheted Bag -- I found this beautiful bag and couldn't resist digging in right away. In fact I had my bag completed and was working on the handles when I noticed a mistake in it. Perfectionist that I am, I took the whole thing out to correct my mistakes. Mr Scarecrow was officially, and deeply, horrified by my actions. I pointed out that once I spotted the mistake it would bug me non-stop until I dealt with it. The flower pattern she used can be found here.

3. Christmas Wish -- this is another free quilt pattern. It will require some embroidery work, and I'm hopeful I can manage. My french knots could use some work, but I can't wait to get this one going either. Gail also offers a couple of other free Christmas projects which you can find in her sidebar.

4. 12 Snowmen -- these are from Vermillion Stitchery and are suppose to be sample size. Can't wait to see them all completed! In fact, I think they'd look terrific sewn upon one of those cross-stitch blankets I've seen in the past. I wonder if I'll be able to locate one here.
