What do you do when it is cold outside?

Yes, it is cold here in Texas, seems the cold has come early for us.  Last week there was frost on the ground for several days.

This gal stays inside as much as she can, I am an island girl.

Well..Yesterday I made four of these cute dish towels.  If you are interested in this design, you can go to Embroidery Library  They have the cutest designs.

It took me four days of almost complete sewing to get this quilt where it is.  It is lacking two borders.  It is laying on my kingsize bed.  Thanksgiving came and I stopped.  This month Island Batik Ambassador challenge is the Log Cabin.  This log cabin is not Island Batik fabric but doing the challenge (haven't shown what I have done yet) has inspired me to do more log cabins. 

This week is the virtual cookie exchange hosted by Carol, Just let me quilt.  As you can see, my day is Friday.  I am so excited to share with you a recipe that I have been using for 30 years.  At this house we can not have a holiday without it.  I am more than excited to see what everyone has done...hope you join us!

Your log cabin quilt is beautiful and HUGE. I like the log cabin block. There are so many different ways to construct the block.

Embroidery Library is one of my favorite sources of embroidery designs for my machine.
Wow that is a big log cabin quilt!

Very sweet designs on your dish towels, Barb! Embroidery Library has such a huge variety of designs that I could spend a fortune there ( and probably have already). Looking forward to your recipe this Friday!

Sweet post. I'm off to check out the Embroidery Library to get those cute designs you used on the towels. Thanks. And your Christmas log cabin quilt looks like it is coming along splendidly. Lovely quilt.
