Happy NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  If you were in the path of last week's winter storm, I hope you fared okay.  The Memphis area got about 1/2" of ice, which led to downed limbs and power lines and a loss of electricity for so many.  In fact, there are lots of people across our metro area that are still without power almost a week later!  We were extremely lucky though.  We kept our electricity, and because temps were in the 50's last Wednesday before the storm hit, it didn't build up on the roads.  We did have to clean up some debris, and we will have to replace a little bit of our fence where a big limb broke it, but overall, I'm feeling very thankful.

I'm especially thankful because the lack of ice on the roads meant that a long-planned ladies' lake trip was still possible (not in Memphis).  Even though it was freezing, it was so wonderful to get away and enjoy a couple of days with my friends, and the setting was gorgeous, even if we only enjoyed it from inside the house.

For me, a winter storm means obsessive weather watching, and then the weekend at the lake also means that there wasn't any extra time for sewing this week (I've been sewing my blocks mostly on the weekends and writing during the week), so no new blocks to share.

Instead, we'll go ahead and check out the highlights from last week's party!  This beauty is by Brenda at Songbird Designs-

Mary at Quilting is in My Blood shared this stunner-

Anne-Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room linked up this sweet little quilt.  There are full photos on her blog, but I just had to show a close-up of the ric-rac!

And just look at this charming photo of all of these donated quilts by heARTS Creations!  You can see individual photos of the quilts in her post, but seeing all of them hanging on the line makes me so happy!

Okie dokie, y'all!  Let's party!

5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Thank you for the share, Kelly! I'm a little southeast of you. It's not supposed to be that kind of weather in the south!! LOL Have a great week.

  2. How nice that you had a winter get-away with friends. I guess if I was to list one of the things I miss about living in Iowa, is the January retreat at a church camp. We could always count on heaps of snow and below zero temperatures that meant extra gratefulness for being with friends while sewing. Ice though is a different story. Take care!

  3. The wolf quilt is really beautiful - well done !
