Twitt Twoo

This is what I am going to be doing early next week- making curtains for the nursery at son and daughter in laws house. Isn't it just charming fabric with all those lovely folk art  birds. 

After my trip to Houston I have been inspired to make a Texas Star quilt and have started making these using some metal templates I bought back from the show.  Loving digging through the repro fabric stash picking fabrics for these and sitting quietly at night with the TV on doing a little  hand piecing.

As 2012 approaches I am sure we can all look back with highs and lows but hope you all have lots of HIGHS in 2012.

Happy New Year to  you all  and thanks for following my personal highs and lows.

Happy Stitching



  1. Dear Sue,
    I'm constantly amazed at how clever you are! Never in a million years could I sew a Texas star let alone make a quilt, if only!
    Sending love & best wishes for 2012.

  2. That is going to be a very cute nursery Sue - not long to wait now. Enjoy the new project and here is to a very happy new year to you.

  3. How could I not love a cute fabric with owls on it. I hope 2012 is a wonderful year for you and I think it is going to get off to a wonderful start. Happy New Year!

  4. How fun using the bird fabric for the nursery. That sounds like a good way to bring in the new year.
    Love the stars you are piecing too!!
    Happy new year Sue.

  5. What cute fabric for curtains - it will be a very sweet nursury. Your stars are wonderful - how cool to find metal templates to use. Happy 2012 to you - may it hold much joy for you!

  6. The curtain fabric is gorgeous and I am looking forward to watching your Texas Star grow.

    Wishing you a happy healthy and prosperous 2012 and lots of highs and no lows.

  7. Sue happy new year to you, 2012 is going to be a year filled with highs for you I am sure. Love the fabric for the nursery , those curtains are going to be very cute.
    Look forward to seeing the new project evolve.

  8. Love the nursery fabric!
    Your stars are looking good. I have an antique Texas Star quilt I should dig out. Very small stars and lots of them. Are your templates from ARDCO? I like that brand of metal template.
    Wishing you all THE BEST in 2012!!

  9. Sue, congratulations on the news of the grandchild. Love the fun fabric for the nursery. And that star quilt is going to be fabulous. We have a star quilt that my husband's grandmother made. It covers our bed.
    All the best ~ sarah
