Happy Halloween

Hi Everyone

   Well it is almost Halloween, can you believe it? Where has the time gone? This year is just flying by! I know you have probably already realized it but there is less than 2 months until Christmas. I really need about 12 more hours a day, oh who am I kidding I would still be behind! 
   I have been getting ready for my quilt club, working on a Christmas project (all you clubbers will just have to wait!). In between working, my sister and I decided to try one of her new embroidery designs. It is so cute I wish I had time to make more. The start to my sweet little guy.... what will he look like?

Isn't he just soooo cute! As you can see there are two little buttonholes that you slide a lollipop through. I just love these little projects. This is from Embroidery Library. Like I said I wish I had time to make more.
Happy Halloween!

It's Pumpkin time!

Hi Everyone,

   I love this time year and with the incredible fall weather we have had you just have to get out and enjoy the sun. Mom, sister and I went out yesterday and visited the "punkin" patch. In our family we don't have any little kids but we enjoy going and picking our pumpkins and also getting all the fresh veggies at the farms.
   On quilting front, most of my projects are for clubs so I can't show them to you right now. Last month I used the 60 degree triangle ruler form Creative Grid. I made this great quilt using the Winterberry Line from Whimsical. I love how the hexagon layout worked out and it has been a long time since I played with such a great primitive line.
    I have really been enjoying knitting as well. I took the Rae scarf class at the store from Rebecca. I have really enjoyed learning a little more ans I always relax when I'm knitting so I have really enjoyed the scarf. This picture is the pattern cover fro Jane Richmond.... not mine!

Well better get back to my November club project, have a great week!

fun day of knitting

Hi Everyone,

      What a great day we had yesterday. A group of around 20 of us got together and knit about 50 purple baby hats. Joyce from quilt club got us started with her 7 hats donated at Saturday Creative Sewing Club and then we added to it. What a wonderful day, everyone had so much fun and to see all those hats piling up, I was just thrilled.
       If you don't know about this wonderful organization visit the link below; in short knit purple baby hats from now until the end of Oct. Then send them to your local group and the hats are given out in November to all new babes, the purple hats are to make awareness for Shaken baby Syndrome.
      I just want to say Thank you to everyone who came out and knit yesterday, it was great meeting new friends and just have a fun day of knitting. If there are any local knitters feel free to drop off your hats at The Cloth Castle, 786 Goldstream Ave. I will make sure your hats get delivered!

Zita thought my sister could use a new hat....she made her a purple beret! You can just see her in the left corner, what a riot we all had a good laugh.
   As you can see there was fun, laughter and knitting. What can we make next?  Have a great week.
