One of my spark friends, QUILTINGBUDDY, asked if I would post a few of the things I have been working on lately. So here we go...
Here is my son's hat, it is knit and double layered, below is what the inside looks like. It is reversable.
Then my daughter and I made fun little toys. I did the owls, and she did the rest. There were many more but we gave them away.
I also made a baby hooded towel, it's a wash cloth for the hood and the full size towel is pleated where the hood attaches.
Here is a dolly wearing the hood.
I am almost finished with the top for this quilt, it needs the borders sewn on yet and then to quilt it. This will be for our livingroom.
I also made an 18" square "quilt", postage stamp pattern with vintage style fabrics. The print in the circle is suppose to be from "little Women" by Louisa Mae Alcot. I made it for my mom, she is going to be 90 in April. She played the part of Jo in a school play back in the 30's. But I couldn't wait to show it to her and when she saw it she asked me to keep it and have it framed. Something to treasure. I stitched the faces with one strand of embroidery floss.
That's about it for now, I am working on another hat for my son's friend. It will be done in a few days.
Lots of work sitting down when my hip was troubling me.
It's better now!
