Weekend work

I've been working on the vine and leaves - almost done!! I can't tell you how exciting it is to pull out an old book and make a project that you've been thinking about doing for years. That's how it is for me with these Joy Angels. I sure hope the whole "hanging it on the picture" thing works!!
When I hung this up this morning to take a picture, I saw my fall fireplace quilt - it's been up for a few weeks now. How I love changing these out for the seasons. You can check out the label list on the bottom right for more posts about my fireplace quilts (if you're new and have no idea what a Fireplace Quilt is :).)

I think it may be almost time to make a new fireplace quilt, that will have to go on my to-do list for 2012. Oh me, my list is already getting full for next year- LOL!! But for me, there is just something about a New York Beauty......... it makes my heart sing :)!!

Have a great Monday!

Your NYB fireplace quilt is just fantastic. Just love those fall colors. Happy to see your progress on the angels :)

Your angels are nice, but I do believe I like your fireplace quilt better. I've never made a New York Beauty, but could easily be tempted to put it on my "very soon" list. Yours is simply striking.

My favorite angel is the one with the striped wings.

That's looking really cool. I'm anxious to see what it looks like covering the picture. Great idea!

So glad to read that you got to work on something that has been on your 'to do' list for some time ..... the angels are sweet and that NYB is perfect for anytime of the year.

The New York Beauty is a long time favourite and yours is amazing. The angels doesn't have much left to do on it, looking great!
