Design Wall Monday

 This week I have a "Design Table"...............



I found these fabrics in the attic and wanted some spring placemats......I even made hemstitched napkins to match...............  I have one more set cut out and ready to stitch but after that I plan to alter the placemats to fit my round table.................



Take a look at Patchwork Times for more inspiration from all over..........HERE

On the Needles Friday

On Friday Judy at Patchwork times hosts On the Needles.......... HERE A great place to see what others are doing and get even more ideas for things to knit.............

 At last I have finished the sweater for my dear sister..........  She and her husband came for a few days and we had a wonderful time..........  We even shopped for buttons for this sweater................

I got them sewn on and it was all ready to wear...........  I think I want one too...... We shall see.......   I have about 2 dozen more ruffle scarves to make and some yarn to use up making hats for adults and babies.....

Maybe I will even have more knitting done by next Friday.......

Blocking Jean's Sweater



All the parts have been completed and the sweater is drying in the sun...............

Then I can sew the parts together and add the finishing touches..........  It will be so good to finish this for a very special sister......

Last night I finished the last of the scarves Cassie brought me yarn to make and began working on the six scarves I am making for Kate.......



Many years ago I started the Mar Bek Nativity...........  It is such a large piece and often got pushed to the side for other things more urgent........  Then I started quilting and it really got put behind...........

I decided last week that I would work on it for an hour each morning..........  



I have all the things I need even the frame that was designed for it.............

As you can see the star is coming along and one angel is begun..................

Lets see what I can do in a week.............
