The pattern for this little one is the original. I had to make it a slightly different shape to make it more carroty.

|Transformed into a carrot|
I made the carrot today but over the past week I have practiced my free motion quilting and played with the cake design I got from the Fresh magazine. I made a kitchen counter mat and a wool wadded hot mat. This is the hot mat.
I also finished an owly sewing kit that I started when I was making birdie tree decorations. The idea for the kit is from a magazine. It has a thimble pouch, a pin wheel, a needle book and a scissor keep.
|I did little free motion flowers behind the owl.|
|The little bird design is from Wee Folk Art|
I haven't given up on quilts. I plan to buy quilt fabric on my overseas trips. At present I only have small amounts to make small things. I have big plans to make at least two big quilts after July.
Have just found a great giveaway at Just One More Stitch. The Fort Worth Fabric shop is great too.
