I just finished out a run of Baby blankets and mini ones to match.
They came out cute and are on their way to Rhode Island. Now I need to finish up my order for 10 handbags, 2 back packs and a Large duffel bag.
Love my Job!!

Yesterday I started making Granny squares for an afghan that I'm making my aunt and uncle for Christmas. Hopefully it will turn out right!

Completing some of my merit badges and embroidering a dresser scarf (stamped) - getting ready to iron on a design for my tea towels and finish up a crocheted afghan for my sone for ocllege next Fall. Next in the works - crocheting rag rugs from recycled sheets and crocheting window toppers for my new living room and dining room windows at the cabin...

Have to make a journal for the exchange/swap and set up for my staff to learn to make journals for themselves/their patients.

I think I need a nap!

I finished knitting my umpteenth roll brim hat (this one is for me) and then I'll continue to work on my dh's sweater.
Got the back, both fronts, and one sleeve done, working on sleeve number two, then its just the front bands and
collar and I'll be done, yippee! Then I'll start on one for me. I've also been sneaking in some embroidered tea
towels for the craft sale that will go to the library fund - we sorely need a new library. But today, I'm working on
the taxes so I don't get too busy and forget to do them altogether....for me, beware the ides of April.

I finished my first granny square, and I think it turned out pretty well! It's something really easy that I could probably finish in about an hour or less. So fun!

This message is for Joanna. I received your wonderful pattern for the farmgirl scarf yesterday. It's funny how things work out, but I really like that blue plastic bag you sent your fabric in. I also think I will make the scarf a little larger so that it will cover my ears when tied behind the head. I really don't want it under my chin! Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness for the pattern and the example. You are so right that it certainly helps to have an example to follow. I will go to the craft store to get the beads Friday after I have my CT scan to see how the chemo is working on my cancer.

I can't wait for our blueberries to ripen. My son has three blueberry bushes. Blueberry muffins sound so yummy. I think that I found a good recipe for the pulp. We will see if my dh likes them.

Betty, I am so happy you like it!! As you can see, the pattern is very easy to make adjustments too. Some I cut the fringe on and others I don't. .just hem the edge instead and maybe add some embroidery. The ties can be made longer or shorter, I did add a little length to mine, the original design had stubby straps for the scarf to be pinned to your shirt. It is a versatile design, can be worn to cover your nose and mouth, around your neck as a scarf, over your head as a kerchief, that is why I love it so much!

Oh,the blue plastic bag, that is from an electrical supply outlet. They are static free bags for circuit boards and such. This company is like a dollar store, they buy items for resale rather than have them end up in the landfill.

Just back from Orlando, FL and our eldest daughter's wedding! Everything was perfect. I sewed the ring bearer pillow cover and her garter (Superman for her new hubby). Now I get to work on mail art, cupcake pincushion, memory book for my nephew's first birthday, and my own stuff. The list goes on! Dianne

I just finished a baby afghan and started a reversible pattern afghan. Have to put that aside until I get tote bags made for the swap.

One of my Farmgirl Sisters and I hit a couple of garage sales yesterday and I found a book "55 Crochet Gifts For The Home" that is from 1993. I was SOOO excited because it has a lot of patterns for crocheted edgings, inserts and doilies! I have been looking for insert type patterns to gussy up the dishtowel for the Kitchen Angel Swap! YAY!! :)

During our recent quilt shop hop, the participating quilt shops gave each visitor a pack of 5 charm squares. Most of those charm squares (plus a few from my stash) and a border now make up a 51" square quilt top. I have to piece the backing and pin the quilt sandwich tomorrow. Hopefully, I can finish the quilt by next Monday to add to the collection of quilts being donated to charity by my quilt guild.

Created mail art yesterday for a swap. Now I'm onto a cupcake pincushion (another swap) and embellished onesies for Haitian babies (also through this forum). Dianne

I'm new here and trying to find my way around. I also have an Etsy shop and just finished several nifty tassels to list. They are made with various ribbons, fibers, leather, beads and charms. I made them in various colors. I think they're pretty. Now I'll go on to some flower brooches/hair doodads. I am notorious for going on to new projects before I finish the previous 20 projects. I'm sure none of you suffer from that affliction!

I'm new here also and I have started my first sweater. This will be my spring/summer project, which I hope will be easy.

Welcome Jenny and Melanie! Melanie, you would love the string of comments about "bad" sewing habits. I think it was titled "Do you ever do this?" It is hysterical...us creative types are all the same. Dianne
