Alaska from Quilts....etc.

Quilting on Alaska is coming along so much faster on the second half of the quilt then it did in the beginning and I think that was because I was planning and plotting the quilting design as I was going – now that the first half is done it is now repeating the design to […]

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds from Quilts....etc.

Finally – it seemed like it took awhile to stitch this longest row on to the body of the quilt and it did because I didn’t work every day at it –  it’s all downhill from here and should go faster. I have outlined in white where the next row is – I put it […]

I know I said I was going to crochet this new short sleeve T-Shirt sweater but then I undid it all and decided to knit it instead – I need more practice and seeing as the yarn was on a really good sale it won’t be much of a waste if it doesn’t turn out.  […]
