Friday Finish

Boy this week went by so fast and a very busy one at it too.
Mom has been getting stronger and lungs sound good. Her new medication has remove a good 10 pounds of fluid. Maybe she can now get back to doing more for longer, I mean keep her out of the hospital.




I did finish the crochet baby blanket during this last time of hospital stay.


Ran out of the white yarn so that decided how big it became.



You can not tell by the picture that it is big enough, even thou it's rectangle instead more square.

After I finished this I started another blanket but it's not a baby.



Hoping it will be big enough to put on a twin bed. I'm using again yarn I had in my stash which means I'm taking a chance that there will not be enough yarn for the size I'm trying for.

This is what I have left 



Right now it measures 40" x 69"



It's a ripple pattern all in double crochet. This one is too big to take now to Doctor visits.



I also finished quilting on my Scandinavian Christmas 



Not in time thou but it is ready for this next Christmas.



This evening I will finish sewing down the binding.

What's Up 2-15-18

It's been too long I feel since I shared what's up on the design wall. 
I have been taking a few pictures the past couple of weeks thinking I would have these posted before now, so here is a progression of what I've had up.



The first of the month I did put a border on the spool wall hanging but I haven't decided what to applique on the borders.


Then after organizing my cut up scraps  


You can see that the bottom shelf's that there are 4 tubs of 2 1/2" strips, I have been looking for patterns to make so I can use them up

Came across this pattern that I like


I figure the is a good 15 min pattern too. Very simple and can be stop and started easily.


Then this what my wall looked like earlier this week.


   
This cute bear baby quilt was this month RSC. 
Made all from scraps from the large tub.
I am going to add lollipops to the tummy to look like the Sharing Care Bear.

Sunflower Sampler Block of the Month

This beautiful Sunflower Sampler is back by popular demand! Designed by Marilyn and edited by Pam - This is a block of the month from 10 years ago and was lots of fun to make. It includes a variety of techniques. We will be using fabrics similar to the ones shown in the photos for the kits.


                  This project includes many different techniques in making sunflowers—traditional applique, blanket-stitch applique, old fashioned piecing, strip piecing, 3-dimensional fabric manipulation, paper-piecing, etc. This will be a “sampler” of techniques used to make the blocks.    



Any of the applique pieces that are not 3-Dimensional can be stitched with your favorite method of applique (needle turn, fusible, buttonhole, etc.) and can be either machine stitched or by hand.
