Cold day WIPs

Brrr! I know it isn't as cold here as it is in the rest of the country, but for Texas it is COLD!  I have been taking advantage of the weather to stay inside and sew.  First off I've finished some new ferret bedding.  We have to change and wash their bedding about once a week and they enjoy exploring something new in their cage, so they have quite a few different configurations of hammocks. This one has proved very popular already!

The "watery" teal and low volume quilt is being quilted.  ( I have got to come up with a better name for that one.) It turned out quite a bit bigger than I was planning. I decided to do a mix of straight line and FMQ quilting.

I also got some new fabrics this week. The scrap pack I won from Practically Pippy during the early December Give Away days arrived.  Here are some of my favorite fabrics!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday. Stay warm everyone!


  1. I love the ferret's hammock. They look quite content. Beautiful quilt! The colors are very calm. With the ship-theme fabric, it reminded me of sitting on a dock watching the boats go by on calm waters. Lovely!

  2. That multi-storey hammock makes me want to be a ferret :) Good luck with your quilting. And lucky you to win such pretty fabrics.

  3. Oh my gosh. Your little ferret in his hammock is just adorable. I'm also glad that there were some fabrics in the pack that you fancied. You'll have to let me know when you use them just in case I miss the post :)
