Took advantage of the warm...okay, hot, weather
and washed some quilts

This is one of my favorites....
a variation of the 9-patch.

I love red!

On the Needle

I think I will participate (sometimes)
"On the Needle" group on Fridays.

This week:

I am working on a pattern called
"Sinful Scarf".

I have been working on this scarf
on and off for a couple of months.

It's really an easy pattern,
but for some reason, I keep
messing it up and having to
rip a few rows out from time to time.

I originally started this scarf for me,
but now...I think it will end up in
the charity pile when it's finished.

If it is ever finished....

Pinterest and Auction projects

Do you use Pinterest?

I could use (waste) hours looking at (pinning)
recipes and patterns and ideas and....
well, just alot of fun things on their site.

I final decided to finish a project I pinned:

I went to the local thrift store and spent $5
for the 2 plates, bowl and 2 candlesticks.
Husband glued them up for me and
ta-da...a new veggie/fruit plate.

My Husband, Super Handyman, is a school teacher.
In the past, he has worked a second Summer job,
but this year, he decided to be a bum.
I've kept his busy...

I purchased a wooden cubby cabinet at
auction for $4. I thought my Husband could
use it for storage at home or at his school.
He decided to cut it in half and made me
2 new shoe cabinets for our closet.

I love shoes...maybe I better go shopping....

Coffee House thank you

I am a member of the
Sip and Stitch Davis County (Utah)
crochet and knit group.
We meet at The House of Brews
each and every Thursday for
some chatting and stitching.

As a thank you to the owner, Nancy,
for allowing us to take over her place,
I made this wall hanging.

(sorry for the poor photo)

I still need to quilt it, then
all the ladies are going to sign their
names on the back.

Wonderful group and
Wonderful meeting place!
(I don't drink coffee, but I love
the sandwiches, pastries and fruit smoothies)

Happy Independence Day!

Hope wherever you are,
you had a safe and happy
4th of July!

Here in Utah...we stayed
close to home and did NOT do any

Too many wild fires are
already burning around the State!

Charity Baby project finish

When we went away for our Anniversary
a couple of weeks ago, I realized I did
not bring any handiwork.

My husband bought me a HUGE
skein of yarn..called a pound of love!
I had crochet hooks with me,
so I followed the pattern inside the
skein label.

The pattern is Lion Brand yarns
Hooded Baby Afghan.

I have been working on it off and on for
the past couple of weeks,

Another finished item to go into the
charity/gift basket.

I love a quick finish project!

I signed up to do the 12 UFO's in 2012

so well this year.

I did accomlish this months goal
of 1 charity quilt (#12 on my list)

I made this quilt from scraps
for the Utah Quilts of Valor group.
It will be used for a awards presentation
ceremony sometime this month.

How are you doing on finishing
