Blogmas Day 2 & 3

Day 2

On the first night I lit the candle and preceded to write that days blog post. Totally forgot about the candle and by the time I did I had burned past day 2, go figure. It’s like writing, need to get back in the swing of things.

Started on my Christmas socks and have a pretty good amount done.

 Very Christmasy 

And Day 2 Advents. 
The minis and Amy’s

Another gorgeous mini and some beautiful green squares of fabric.

Along with seeds from some of the flowers she grows and I will be growing these next year.

I have been knitting some hats for gifts this Christmas. I finished the black hat and started this blue one.

A couple days ago I had completed the pink hat for my youngest daughter, she still loves pink.

Day 3

Well I had my day planned to finish up cleaning the living room, dining room and the entryway but we all know what can happen to a good plan.
So I did some but not all, I’ll have to finish tomorrow. 

I did some more gifts ordered, and a little more knitting 

Today Advents

Markers from Imagined Landscape, such a pretty mini and small balls of wool that were from something Amy made.

While working in the dining room I needed to redo my Chicken Christmas tree. That cute little fur ball on the table is one of the culprits who dismantled my tree. He looks so innocent but just wait.

See what I mean, sneaky little guy 

Ta dah!!!!!

So pretty, this tree has been out all year long since the day I created it. Not sure but at least 6 years.

Had to bring out my Christmas reading. I’m about a quarter through it now.

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

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. 

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
