Challenge Update Week #2 and Snowglobes

I have finally made some progress on my blended quilt challenge. This is the center of the quilt. There are 8 blocks in it and they are surrounded by setting triangles. This is going to be a dark quilt and right now you can't tell much about it. I am having to make these blocks a little at a time so I can get the colors right in it.

This challenge is with Nicole, Lisa, and Cindy to finish this by the end of January. I believe they are much further along that I am, so be sure you check out their progress for this week. Hopefully I will make better progress soon, lol.

This was the fourth snowglobe I received. This one is so crazy I just love it.

This quilt is made from a pattern called Christmas Lanterns. It is in a book called Successful Scrap Quilts by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolfe. I used Hollywood and Vine fabric by Moda. I used this one to photograph the remaining snowglobes I have. I will try to get them posted this week.

In the window is a stained glass picture I made a long time ago. I just loved to work with stained glass but my hands and wrists just hurt too much to continue doing it.

At least your making progress right? Love the snow globe. They remind me of my grandma. She used to have them all over at Christmas.
