Blogmas; 18 days till Christmas

 Wow…. Only 18 days till Christmas 

Time is just going by so quickly. 

I have gifts to finish and get in the mail. 

When thinking about what I need to get finished I realize its all hats I have on my needles. 

                    I have 3 hats….

Plus need to make another one for my other grandson. 

The one I started I had to frog some because I wasn’t paying attention and went to far. 

Getting closer to being done….

Then there is my advent knit

I think I’ve figured out the fold and knit stitch.  As much as I’m enjoying this pattern now I have to focus on the gifts first. 

Then there is the hat I’m not sure who it is for. The yarn I’m using is some that I dyed myself. I used yellow onion skins. Makes such a gorgeous yellow. Love the color. I can see a cardigan made in this color. I even have a pattern picked out but it will have to be a new year start. 

This is today’s Advent gift

This mini is my favorite so far. 

Well I can’t think of anything else. It’s a little late and I need to get to bed. 
Hope all is well with you and you to get a good night sleep too. 
Till tomorrow 


  1. Love your hats--especially that fold and knit one..such lovely colorways...
    hugs, Julierose

How to Make a Portable Design Wall

I had wanted to get a portable design wall to take to retreats but did not want to pay the price. Looked at various pins on pinterest and took ideas from more than one to come up with my verison. It worked out great and only cost a fraction of the price. The PVC pipes, joints and 2 yards of felt cost under $22.00 My design wall is 4' x 4' which stands approximately 5 1/5' tall. For this size need 2 - 10ft length of 3/4" PVC pipe for the frame and 4ft of 1" PVC pipe for the feet Cut the 3/4" PVC into 4 - 4' section                                                                                       2 - 1' section              Cut the 1"  PVC into 4 - 1' section          The joints you'll need will be 2 - 3/4" elbows 2 - 3/4" T's 2 - 3/4" to 1" T (this will be the base of the Feet) 4 - 1" elbow Also need pipe cutters (this cost me almost as much

Yarn Along 2/20/13 Spoon Pin Doily

It's snowing here and I know some of you are tired of snow but here we will take the moisture any way we can get it. Plus it just gives me a reason to stay in and work on some of my projects. In this picture I'm not sure if you can make it out but in the background there are some wild turkeys that hang around the house sometime, just  chilling This project I'm working on is Spool Pin Doilies.   I had never heard of them before until Bonnie Hunter had mentioned it on her blog . She a had a viewer send her one for her sewing machine along with a pattern. I did not like the pattern but loved the idea so I decided to make up my own version. I wanted a more simple, smaller and fuller doily. So I tried different thread sizes to get one that I like. (From left to right) I tried sock yarn, which I'll redo because I think I like that look. Heavy weight crochet thread, nope too big Bamboo yarn, I like it. Looks good on my Kenmore. Pearl cott

My Sunflower Quilt

  Yea it's done. It has been a few years since I started this quilt. It was a BOM at Sager Creek Quilt Shop . Pam's (the owner) friend Marilyn McSpadden designed this quilt and Pam quilted it. Marilyn  used a lot of different techniques in appliqued designs.I just loved the weaving of fabric in the center of this blocks.   What beautiful quilting she did. I favor hand quilting but for machine quilting this is top notch.  As you can see Marilyn had design some of the blocks in 3 dimensional    And the rouging in the center of this sunflower was fun. Love the details in the quilting. This quilt measures 64 x 82 and was a fun challenge. This quilt will go in my dining room.
