The new school year is in full swing,
but the weather thinks it is still
Summer...so hot...high 90's!
We have a Women's-family Shelter
in our county called Safe Harbor.
Each year, in November, they have
a craft sale, a Christmas Tree auction
and a yummy Dinner to raise a
large portion of their operation costs
for the upcoming year.
This year, my donations are children's hats.
I learned how to knit I-cord for this
pattern. They knit up quickly
and I am using all those little yarn
balls left over from other projects.
I received first place ribbons on the
two quilts I entered into my county fair.
This first quilt is from a pattern called
"Be My Neighbor". I made it from
some very bright fabrics that were
a gift. I like how it turned out, but
the colors are not really my style, so
it is going to be gifted.
The second quilt is a Red and White sampler
I made, with my Husband's help, for our
35th wedding anniversary. He helped pick
out blocks that represented our life
together. There is a block for our 4 kids,
our 8 grandkids and places we have
lived. I love Red!
Today, for Slow Stitch Sunday, I am
going to cut and continue hand sewing
a set of Nativity pieces for gifting
this upcoming Holiday Season.
What are you creating?
