An End and a Beginning

Here are my Stars in A time Warp. I will begin getting this quilt together at the beginning of the year. I have 60 blocks. I know how I'm setting them, but not ready to reveal it yet.

The end of the year is coming to a close. I've been enjoying some fun outings.

 Last weekend was the Scandinavian Festival and it's been a tradition for 5 years now to attend and celebrate my heritage.
I enjoy looking through several antiques booth. Love this Nordic bag. The colors were amazing!!

 We started this past weekend in Portland on business. This was our view from the hotel. It was a gray and rainy day, but fun to be on the Columbia River. This is the bridge that connects Oregon and Washington state.
 We went to a fun antiques mall and this was set up by the front door. So fun and detailed!!
We had a pretty and white drive home! It was beautiful!!

Make it a great week!

  2. I need to put my Stars together. I haven't counted them lately. Glad you got home safe. The snowy roads look scary. Your view on the Columbia was nice. Not too near the Flooding in Portland.

  4. I love the stars, of course! The snow looks awfully pretty. So good to get lots of it on Mt. Hood.

  6. Your stars look like they will go together well in a quilt. I never found time to do the stars over the year though it is one of my favorite pieced patterns to make.

  7. Love the stars! So many different fabrics, love to see that. Curious as to how you will place them. I admire you for liking that drive. That would scare me to drive thru those conditions. So far no snow here (The Netherlands) fingers crossed it stays that way.....

  10. So glad to see Mt. Hood is getting snow; too bad it was during your drive home!

    Your stars are wonderful! I too have a set for mine but haven't started assembling Batch #1 of 100something. Batch #2 is waiting in the wings; I haven't decided on a set yet but still have some stars pieces, ready to sew. I'll be eager to see what you do with yours!

  14. I am interested to see how you have decided to set your stars.
    Was the white drive home also a white-knuckle drive home or were the roads warm enough that it wasn't slick?

  15. Reminds me of Bend when I go to visit my girlfriend in Oregon. Wish we could have gotten more of that rain in Roseville CA by Sacramento.

  18. Hello! I do love seeing what you've been sewing! Your last snowy photo made me so homesick!! I'm from WA, and loved driving through the Cascades when there was snow. Nothing else on earth is so beautiful. Can't wait to see how your stars are set, I'm thinking of adding mine to a medallion star quilt.

  19. Love your stars. I'm familiar with the Scandinavian Festival in Junction City but where is the festival that you went to? I'm never really able to go to the festival in Junction City but if there is one in state this time of year, I would love to know about it.
