Quilt ADD in therapy

Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

Occupy Your Sewing Room - Two Stealth Flimsies :D



It's all Flamingo Santa's fault!


Occupy Sewing Room


I had planned on using my Occupy Day to whip up the Christmas gifts I want to do this year, but he said, "Naaa - you should work on this kit instead."







I was weak after a month of stressful health insanity with our poor kitty, culminating with an eye removal on Wednesday and my term project due on Thursday - tired of doing what had to be done, and needing to do something to replenish my batteries. Layered on top of being bummed that I didn't have a single thing to show for the Christmas Quilt Show and the fact that I had two untouched kits sitting in my stash room already. . .   I caved.  :D  And I'm so very glad I did. It was a perfect day.


And I now have TWO Christmas flimsies:


A Holly Jolly Snowman (made with the "Winter Welcome" pattern by Coach House Designs)






And A Snowy Day in the Woods (made with the Snow Days pattern by Janet Locey)



I'm a happy woman.

  4. Sewing Therapy...so much cheaper than a visit to the doctor. Both quilts are so pretty! Hope your kitty is recovering well...it's so stressful to see them stitched up but I'm sure he will feel much better.

  10. Wow, great work. I love both the quilts. I have ALWAYS loved that snowman panel. Had an idea of making one for my front porch entry with some little lights in the sky. Didn't get to it this year or last - but the idea is still in my head to do it. Maybe for next winter. LOL

  17. I love the houses in the woods! Are the houses pieced blocks next to a fussy-cut block? Either way I think it turned out fantastic!

  18. Cute snowman. Loving the houses too. Especially like the how the print between the blocks brings it all together. Awesome! :)
