Mary Jo, I really liked that charm pack sample quilt you had on your project board. Do you have a finished photo of it?

I just finished two more doors for my Etsy shop. I kept in mind the holiday's coming up and this is what I made....

This one is for Valentine's Day. I love the hearts.


But I think this is one of my favorites. This one, of course, is for St. Patrick's Day. Can't you just imagine the little leprechaun taking off his boots and hat before slipping inside the door to his cosy home. Of course, I don't think he would be too happy knowing that left a trail of gold coins behind him.

I just finished this grape doily today,it's made from a pattern out of an old 1953 Puritan crochet book.I started it in mid-November and just got all the leaves and grapes crocheted to the center today.
I'm real happy with the way it turned out but wish the photos were more true to color,it's alot more vivid color than what the picture shows!

i am finally learning to weave, and i love it. i stumbled upon a very nice Lucet Klik 40 tabletop loom for less than half price, and a wonderful (inexpensive) instructor not two miles from my house. so far we are up to warping the loom. i am making place mats for my glamper camper Buttercup, in shades of green, yellow, and purple. it is so relaxing, and i am enjoying myself so much.

Some dreams are worth the risk it takes to make them real.

Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footsteps on the moon.

I put a patch on a pair of my husband's boxer shorts. I know I could have matched the fabric better and been more neat with the stitching.




But . . . these are underwear after all and the spot I patched is comfort critical.

Continuing on projects inside my little glamper trailer.

Decoupaged fabric, eyelet fabric, various laces and daisy embellishments on the unpainted side of the refrigerator door. (Painted side is a very unattractive yellow-gold and didn't want to use it just in case the paint would "bleed" through the fabric/lace) When I find just the right trim I plan to put trim on the metal edge around the door.

I am working on a scrapghan. It's an afghan made from all the left over yarn I have collected. It is going to one of the 2nd grade teachers at the school where I volunteer who is having a baby this spring.

If anyone here has left over yarn which they do not want anymore, I will take it off your hands and send you an amigurumi in return.

I finished this rose doily a few days ago and got all the leaves tacked on between the roses,I started this doily last month while doing my three hour gestational diabetes test at my OBs office.
Once I tacked on the leaves I then started working on another Irish rose doily,this one from a 1949 Star Book pattern,it has an irish crochet pinwheel in the center that was very challenging,I'm doing the center in a natural shade and the roses and leaves will be a dusty rose and sage green for a kind of antique look.

Wow! That is real purity stuff Kathryn. I"m not sewing today--learning how to fix a vintage sewing machine. She is now sewing very well but it's feed dogs a stuck. Due to age and nobody activating this part. A hair dryer for heat, Kroil to get rid of gunk and a mallet to loosen the part. Wish me luck.
