More Gifts...

The end of the school brings the need for more gifts.
I found this little CRISS CROSS COASTERS pattern.

These are so simple and paired with a gift card

they add a personal touch to the thank you gift!

Another Lucy Bag...


Have I mentioned before how much I love to knit?

Have I further mentioned, how in love with the fulling/felting process I am?

It is a fantastically magical compositional change in the wool and it completely ROCKS!!

I spent most of the time knitting this in the car while my husband

drove us on various trips visiting the families and the rest

of the time knitting the days I was at the hospital with my mom.

I'll be using it to hold knitting projects! Shocking, I know!

Happy Hobbies!

Quilt A Long...

Star blocks for weeks 1 & 2 of Crazy Mom Quilts Quilt A Long.

I'm pretty pleased with my fabric selection for these, although
my photography doesn't show the beauty of the blues.

The instructions for week 3 were posted this morning
and I'm hoping to get that block completed this evening.

Happy Hobbies!

Oh the life...

Let me tell you, now I'm on a roll.

One chest cold, stomach bug and plenty of sleep later! I'm finally on a roll!

I've been working on Crazy Mom Quilts quilt along, gifts for the babysitters, a gift for the teacher assistant and the Lucy bag! Tons more ideas in the works!

Only 5 more afternoons scheduled before I'm finished working for the summer. What's not to love about the college schedule?

I'll be back to show you some actual progress tomorrow.

For now, I'm off to sew!

Happy Hobbies!
