Summer and winter with the Nuts

It was still officially summer on Sunday and the forecast called for record highs in the Puget Sound area, but Sew Day with the Nuts had a decidedly autumn/winter feel to it, starting with Carolynn's warm and inviting breakfast table setting.

Then she took us up to the bedroom to ooh and ahh over her glorious, rich, warm quilt that was finally finished.

Back downstairs, we pulled out our various projects and show-and-tells and you would've sworn it was Christmas time. Linda J. showed this BIG whimsical applique snowman quilt ... look at all the details in the closeup:

Linda P. worked on this beautiful embroidered and beaded cardinal on an evergreen bough:

Nancy embroidered another snowy winter scene:

Carolynn's crazy quilt had holiday reds and greens:

But I bucked the trend. I brought summery colors to start another fractured circle quilt:

And Linda J. showed off her "Funky Chicken." It was another great day with the Nuts!

Have a colorful day
