My Beautiful Florida Daughter Lauren

Look at that beautiful smile! She has been this happy since she was a baby.  You have seen her in some of my other pictures but for some reason I never took her “Portrait with the quilt” before.
We had lunch together today at our clubhouse and I had planned on a photo there which I forgot. Then she got the car packed with the huge quilt I gave her and was ready to leave and remembered so I had her come back inside to take this. I took two pictures and they both were great.
She is one of those people that makes you happy to be around. Everyone loves her.

New Afghan In Progress

This is the afghan I am currently knitting.
It is very different than my usual ones.
I am using one strand of a bulky yarn and have close to 20 colors of the yarn. I use an entire skein and then change color.
It is so soft and comforting. I wish there was some way I could share with you the feel of this yarn. You can bet I’ll be knitting a shawl or cowl with some of this yarn.

Bags, Pouches and Odds

red green borders pounch
I have been making a lot of “little things” with leftovers from projects. The reds, greens and Christmas fabric make this bag perfect for the Christmas season.
Log Cabin knitting needle holder

This was an unfinished class project for a sewing kit. I didn’t add all the inside parts and just finished it with the zipper. I use it for my collection of bamboo double pointed knitting needles in the larger sizes.image
Zipper bag from a machine needle punch experiment piece.
This little block had a border around it. I played with it and stitched and tucked to get this odd 3 dimensional little pouch. There is a zipper on the back.
Sometimes it is fun to just use up odds and ends when one is not ready for big projects.

A Gorgeous Christmas

Today I am sharing pictures from my oldest son and DIL’s home from Christmas past.
Part of my reason for sharing is because my middle child wasn’t there and he won’t be this year either.
Could they be planning the shopping trip for the day after Christmas since they need more decorations?
Even the animals think they are Santa!
