ornies and a quilt

These are some of the things I've worked on in the past week.

I made some of the Frosty Flakes #5 from this week
 into Frosty ornaments!
They are designed by Dawn Hay of As Sweet as Cinnamon, her newest project a BOW(block of the week), she's only on week 5 plenty of time to catch up!!
and I finished the quilt below........... but I had to roust out Cami from her reading chair before I took quilt pictures......I painted the tree on the wall of my granddaughter's toy room the same day we painted the walls a different color other than construction "cream" that was 20 years old ( the former owners never painted the room just used it for storage.)
amazingly enough the tree is only one color of brown paint.  one brown.............what?  no I am not lying........... I drew on the wall with the big sidewalk chalk so I would basically know where to paint the base color.......but there was some sort of chemical reaction with the wet paint and the chalk and this is the result........Once I realized what was going on added some extra chalk on top of the wet paint figuring if it didn't look okay when dry, I could paint over it with more paint.  once it was dry looked  good enough for a toy room so I added the leaves in green.  Has not come off and that was 7-8 years ago.

the baby quilt my daughter needed for good friends of theirs.
here's the back

I have to go back to stitching now or I won't have any thing ready for tomorrow...............
