Fall Stitching with Thermoweb

 It's time to start a little fall stitching.

This is my newest pattern and it's free over at Thermoweb.

It only takes a few things to make this fun

Happy Fall Gnome Mini Quilt.

and a little bit of fabric.

I also have a super quick free tutorial over on the 
Thermoweb Blog for these festive
Fall Coasters

These are so quick and easy.
You can make a set for yourself and a friend.

This is my favorite time of year for stitching.
I've only just begun...

Is It Red or Is It Orange? - Orange You Glad Blog Hop

  Welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks 
my day - the final day for the Orange You Glad Blog Hop.

To all that participated or commented -
Thank you so much!
I enjoy hosting blog hop events so much.

My head is swimming with all kinds of ideas
and I can't wait to get to playing with orange!
But first, it's my day to show my
Red and Orange Turtles
do a little color play.

When the idea for this hop came along, my first thought was that I needed to use up some of the orange scraps in my ever-growing stash.

Then one day, I remembered a long argument...

You see, my mom had this turtle (she may still have it)
It was a little handcrafted bobblehead turtle that was so cute.
Similar to these...

I made a comment about how cute her little orange turtle was
she said, "It's RED!" 

Isn't funny how somethings look orange at one time and then look red at others.
It's all about the environment for some reds and oranges.

These turtles share a couple of fabrics - it's all about what you put the fabrics with.

The English paper pieced pattern for the turtle 
free from Abby Glassenberg - Tilly the Turtle

They are about 6".

I own Abby's Puzzle Ball Animals Book - I have it in my list to make a couple.

Can you spot the same fabrics in both the red and the orange paper pieces?
Color is so interesting.

We are celebrating the color orange!

I'm sharing my day with these bloggers:

This blog hop is for everyone!
Have fun visiting each blog and making new friends.

They have worked hard to show us some new ideas, so be sure to thank them with 
a sweet comment!

Orange You Glad Blog Hop This Week

 I've invited my blogging friends to show off some orange stitching projects
this week
in the
Orange You Glad Blog Hop!

What is a Blog Hop?

It's like a "show and tell" online.
Our blog hops feature sewing and quilting and are like joining a quilt guild without leaving home. 
Carol at Just Let Me Quilt, Joan at MooseStash Quilting, and I come up with a challenge
and invite bloggers to email with their blog information if they want to join our hop.

After we get that info, we assign a date for them to post their project. 
We give everyone plenty of time to sew something, usually two months. 

We inspire each other with projects, tutorials, or patterns. 
Anyone can follow along!

It's all about orange this week!

I can't wait to see all the projects!

Check out this great group of bloggers that are
creating something inspired by the color 

Be sure to visit and leave some comment love!
