Pretty in Yellow

I love this yellow and while I waited to find the plum for the other blanket I started this one.

I make them with love and choose the recipient as I make them.

When your chairs need a pick me up

You gather your tools and reupholster them.

Before and after.  The darker colors are ideal and coordinates with the rest of the decor.

That plum color

That plum color is hard to find.  I have had to rethink the design of this blanket to accommodate for the lack of plum.

It turns out it will be probably more interesting this way anyway.   She is half done.

Inspired by a novel read in her fifth grade class, this little critter was designed on paper and then came to life with fabric and a sewing machine.

Grasshopper is ready to present to the class.

Something different

On a recent trip to a favorite fabric store I looked through a magazine and found a picture of a different kind of scarf.

The trick is to do chains and connect them to the previous one as you go.  It allows for a lot of freedom and the need for a pattern.

Fabric Shopping

Armed with coupons and project plans, I marched to JoAnnes.

 Quilt making is in the air.  Off to sew I go.

Ending and beginning

This blankie was successfully sent off to the little cousin in Portugal.

The pink and green one is now on hold awaiting more yarn.  So, the search for a new beginning in a new color began.

A companion color chosen as well.

And now it is growing to become a gift.
