Almost there

If you could see my face you would know how happy I am with this.

I am starting the border as seen on Attic24.

I already have another started, this time with pink tones.

It beckoned me

With my index finger healed, I was able to crochet again.
I decided to use the blue as the color that provides structure to the unpredictability of the rest of the blanket.

It' s like having controlled chaos.

Art on walls

At the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO

A nook in a hallway leading to the elevator.

Acquired on vacation

While in Colorado I came across these pretties.
I do not embroider well...

So I acquired them as the perfect self gift from the trip.

This one was for my friend who lovingly took care of our pets while we were away.

My favorite.

They will be memories of this wonderful place.

Camera Bag

This bag will be useful when I am using a smaller purse and I want my camera with me.

I love making them but I am not very fond of cloth purses.
I do know 2 little girls that will claim it in a flash... :-)

Works in Progress

My head is like a pipeline where some project is always coming up.
A quilt to be.

Boxes, a bag, and shoes in the making too.

The beginnings of a pillow made up of squares looking like this one.
These will be kept in the family.

Pi Pillow

Another new project where skills are learned.

I just kept attaching the wedges to one another and wondering how the middle would turn out.

It was off a little, hence the button. But it sure looks like a cool accent to me.

In the beginning I laid out the pieces. I did enlarge the pattern when I copied it from the magazine page.
This pillow can be really exciting in bright colors and way bigger, like in a kid's room.
