Welcome to Precious Tyes

I have many passions in life and one of them is quilting. The others are reading, knitting,
crochet, cross stitching exercise and being a mom which are all precious tyes to me.
This blog will be about all of these things but mainly about quilting and how it is tied into my life.
The above wall hanging was designed by me and published into a pattern called Homespun Memories.

My blog is also about my Nifty Fifty Quilting swaps which are 50 state quilt block swaps that I started organizing over 10 years ago when my husband was going through depression. It helped me through a very difficult time. We have swapped over 70,000 quilt blocks during this time with many stories that traveled across the country along with our state quilt blocks. Our groups also make charity quilts for Breast Cancer Awareness.

January Challenge Completed

 I finished several Mug Rugs in Blue for the month of January.  Here are my Snowflake Mug Rugs for the cold winter days.  The snowflakes, borders and binding was done in Glow in the Dark Fabric so they are easy to spot on those dark winter nights.  Great way to enjoy your coffee, tea or hot chocolate on a cold winter day and there is room for your snack too......which my first choice would be chocolate but you know us quilters and our chocolate.

I decided to make a Spring/Summer Mug Rug in hopes that warm weather will be coming soon.
I am not saying which Mug Rugs I sent to my secret buddy in the Mug Rug Swap but I also included a goodie in my packet to her.  It is one of my knitted 100% cotton Angel washcloth.  I hope these goodies will help warm her up this winter whether she uses them with coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
 You can find the pattern for the Angel at http://frogiezplace.blogspot.com/2007/12/angel-cloth.html
Now that is it Feburary, I must start thinking of a project for my Red scraps.  Valentine's day is coming up and my Granddaughter lives four hours away.  I wonder what quick project I could whip up for a 6 year old.  If you have any ideas for me please leave me a comment.
