I'm stretching myself out on a limb showing me in the sweater I knitted for my sister. She is about my size, so I figured I was the one to get pictures in it, before I shipped it off. She has received the sweater and it does fit her, but her new excitement is her first granddaughter just born yesterday, so it might be a while before I get some pics from her.
This is knit with a tweed wool from Knitpicks. The pattern is a Debbie Bliss. I have knitted baby sweaters of hers with the same kind of collar. They must be one of her favorites.
At my quilt guild, packets of fabrics are put together for members to take home and make into a charity quilt. This quilt is the result of one of those packets. I looked back on my blog and saw that it was the end of June when I received the packets, so it has taken me a while to get this together. My first post is here.
And here is the final result of that packet.
I had fun trying out some quilting ideas that I don't normally do. They are not perfect, but it is fun to do them and finding ways to get better.
This design only showed up on the orange. The other fabrics were too busy. That is something to keep in mind when quilting.
I started the hexie tablerunner, which you can see in a past post, but I made so many hexies that I didn't need for it, I turned them into potholders. The tablerunner is still sitting unfinished, but the potholders are complete.
This summer we went to Leavenworth for a vacation. They had a cute little quilt shop outside of town at one of their fruit markets. I bought this pattern there and am now doing it. It's all a fusable with lots of houses, trees and snow. In the center is the ice skating pond. That is how I'm starting.
