Rainy Day

Cold, rainy, gray day............

Wade curled up in a quilt..... His eyes were getting heavy........



Ahhhhhhhhh.......  Asleep..........  He slept there all morning.....  Now about the quilt.......  It was pieced years ago by me and hand quilted by a dear friend......  I do not normally let anyone use that quilt but it was handy yesterday and Wade had recently had his bath........... 



I spent most of the day taking care of Lem....  It was not one of his good days..........  Maybe today will be better......  We see the Dr today to get the bone stimulator .  I ask for prayers that this will work for him.....

All made out of Daisy, a Plymouth Yarn........

Now waiting for the quilt to arrive so that I can add the binding.....  Then this will be mailed.....Hurray...
Now check out Patchwork Times to see what others are making... HERE

Getting Closer


Here it is.......  Ready (almost) to hand over to the owner......  I still need to attach the small squares but I am waiting for Georgina to approve the placement.....  I am hoping to find someone to embroider a label for the bottom border....

Still needs layering, quilting and binding but this is a step closer to complete.....


Next up is to complete the knitted angels for Christmas.........



Ten are complete and I am hoping to make it an even dozen but I doubt I will have time......  Maybe next year..... I was going to add a link for acquiring the book but it must be out of print.  Amazon has one for $44.00 dollars....... Whew........

Knitting Addiction & An Almost Finished.....

I signed up for the Keepsake Quilts BOM of little quilts to go in the stand....  Stand was included.

I had the urge to applique so stopped mid LIST and prepped it....... 

Baby things entered so it was temporarily abandoned.........  Picked it up after the last stitch was completed on baby gifts and now it is ready to layer and quilt..........  Oh Happy Day!!!




There isn't a knitting shop in my area and sometimes you need to feel the yarn before you buy it.......

A company in Kitty Hawk, NC has outfitted a truck with lots of goodies and travels within a three hour radius.........

Fortunately for me that included Greenville, NC which is only 15 miles away.........

Lem and I planned an adventure for yesterday.......  We went to JoAnn Fabrics for some necessities to complete the upcoming project.......  More on that later.......

Then off we went to find the knit bus.......

First I found some soft cuddly yarn to make this Bunny Buddy......  Isn't it delightful....


Saw this purse and had to have one for me.........


Always sock yarn finds its way into my bag.......  I have enough already but what is two more pairs?



This sweetie sweater caught my eye....  Must make one for our new addition.

Pattern and yarn for a car seat blanket....... 


For me this pattern and yarn for a cowl......... 


Fingerless mittens for Rebekah.....


Last of all three more skeins to go with the three I already have......  I found that two skeins makes Elizabeth Zimmerman's surprise jacket and hat with wee mittens to match......  Three more sweater sets in my future.........
