 I made these for Kristin some time back, just realized I never showed them off. She's off in Washington state teaching and living in her own apartment now, I do miss her. I keep making her things in brown and turquoise with aqua and maybe a bit of dark orange thrown in. She has brown dishes she will move someday to her home(they live in my basement now) and I love to color coordinate things for her.


I made this hat and scarf combo for my niece Rylee. It's fuzzy and so soft you just want to squeeze and pet the scarf. I'm not sure if orange is her color but it's what I had on hand at the time I decided to make them. Heck, kids loose scarves and hats so fast it really don't matter what color it is.
  I took this pic just before my camera really started acting funny, the next pic was bluish with lines thru the top half of it so who knows why this one is goldish orange. Hahaha maybe it's supposed to look like all those pic's from the 70's.

Christmas catch up

 I want to show off my B-day present. Mom really knows what I like, cat fabric and a cat pin. I have worn my pin and will be sewing up the kit sometime this next month or so. Not sure if I'm going to do the quilt the same as the picture but I love the fabric so I will be using it all in whatever I end up building.
 I had a heck of a time with my camera this year..........please excuse the lousy pic's. Kelsey and his Star Wars quilt. My brother was the BIGGEST Star Wars fan when he was little so this year Mom had a theme for her quilts. Thanks Kelsey
 Josh's quilt was a little different in that the fabric is glow in the dark.
 Jakes favorite color is red.
 Kev's favorite is blue and of course Brad's is green.
 This is Darian's quilt, she wasn't here so we opened her present to show it off. Her's was the first quilt made because the Jelly Roll just screamed her name with the jewel tones and dark purple.
 Jamie's is batik with lots of orange. I had to put purple on the back because the orange I bought the quilt machine just didn't like and with time running out we improvised.
 Sara's is blue, teal and navy. Perfect for her.
 I love mine, in this pic it looks really red but there is a lot of pink in the fabrics. Mom said the trianges were a pain in the butt. 
Kristin was the last to open hers. She got here the 26th. I think she really liked it too.

 I'm really glad the quilts went over so well, it was a lot of work but well worth it in the end. We started in October but it was still down to the day before finishing them because of my work schedule. I am starting my buying and making for next year already, I have one present bought.....lol.
