A Few More Finishes


I found a few more ideas online for babies........  This bandana bib is a good one for teething babies because they absorb moisture.......  The pattern calls for terry cloth or flannel backing but having neither of those items I used two pieces of matching fabric and lightweight batting between......  Add a snap to the back and this gift is finished quickly........ 





I made two of them in bright fabric..........




and two in blue on white.....  the blue seemed to fade away in the picture.


I also discovered a pacifier holder online.......  Two are made with grosgrain ribbon and two are from fabric........... 


Finished a knitted bib to add to the box and this will be a nice surprise........


Having promised Jason and Kim bowl cozies I took the time to get them done......


Someone at lunch bunch had a purchased phone case.........  Two other friends wanted one....  Now they will also have smiles this week.....


In the evenings I have been knitting angels for my tree.......  So far one is assembled.  Three more are waiting for assembly..........  Hope to finish a dozen before Christmas.........

Done and Begun

County block finished for the State Quilt....  I have given it to someone else to quilt and mail....  Marked that off my list.....


Next up was the Block of the Quarter for the guild.....  The guild provided the background for four blocks.  That was allowing for error in cutting....  I selected to make 16 blocks but I actually got 21 blocks total from the fabric.

All cut out and ready to sew.............


While I was cutting I cut a few extras for me just in case I want to add to them and make my own quilt.....

Studio Time

Finished Wade Hamilton's new fall outfit..........  He is going for a spa day on Monday so I am waiting to let him wear it.........


I was asked to make a block to represent our county on a State Quilt......  I chose to use the emblem on our name tags.


Of course I had to enlarge it a bit....  Now it is all prepped and ready to stitch...........


Let's don't forget that the exchange blocks are due on November 1st.....  I have eight ready to sew but I will need to make a few more.......  The hardest part is selecting the fabric......


Kate found this at Hobby Lobby when we were in Georgia..........  Of course I said I would stitch it for her.........



I have begun....  I use it as a quick pick up project when my mind is tired.........


Spent most of the week cooking and baking........  Hopefully I can spend next week stitching...
