Linda, this morning on Fons & Porter quilting show on PBS they worked with a long-arm quilter. Now I know what you and the other quilters are talking about.

Beautiful quilt!

Grace, boot bracelets, what a cute idea. Don't wear boots much here in FL, mostly flip flops. LOL Linda, that quilt is amazing! Today I hope to finish a BB8 blanket I've been working on for a birthday gift.

ok, today I finished up one of my UFO's, a scrap quilt, and I also finished up another round loom knitted hat...
I 'knitted' a total of 4 kid sized hats and 1 adult hat in the Navy/lime green color (Seattle Seahawks colors)...

(posted on the Finish your UFOs thread)


I find that the thicker the yarn the warmer and durable the hats are.

this one I made a bit longer so you can wear it with a rolled brim or cuffed...

Well now to get busy on my next project,,, a small baby afghan that I started 4-5 months ago,,,, yep,,, always got a UFO or 10 waiting to be picked up and completed... lol!

Grace, love the quilt and hats. They are beautiful. BB-8 is a Star Wars character, droid, from the newest movie. You don't have to be a kid to like BB-8. We have a nightlight of him in our living room! LOL He's like R2D2,if you know who he is. ;)

Wow, everyone was super busy over the weekend! Everything looks so great.
Grace, your hats look really warm. They will be nice for winter.

I finished another pair of my crochet slipper shoes for another friend and then started some more crochet hot pads. I don't think I will complete my crochet list before the baby comes but every stitch I complete is one step closer!

Boot bracelets, blankets and pillowcases (I have to get started on mine for Christmas).
Grace, your scrappy quilt is so pretty. I know I am saving those strips for something. And, I haven't used my looms yet. Your project is encouraging! I have some really soft yarn to try it with.
Today, I will complete at least 3 of the bowl holders. (back to those for quick gifts). I want to add them to a box for my grand daughter and our great gd to get into the mail. Using some of those swapped 10" squares, of course.

Judith,,,
I luv the looms,,, easy peasy... and I find that using thick soft yarn is my fav... also by combining 2 yarns (like the blu/grn) works great in giving a thicker feel....

Been busy today, but did manage to get a Christmas gift done! I give my supervisor, who loves to bake, a bottle of homemade vanilla every year. Bought a book on wrapping with cloth instead of paper, so I try to make some of these reusable wraps for Christmas gifts. Judith, I've been thinking of making some bowl holders too, Post some pictures, I'd love to see yours!

Judy, thats a great idea to use cloth instead of paper. I would have never thought of that and I like the look it creates better. Your supervisor will love it!

I love that, Christy! Great job. Do you use a pattern or did you make it up yourself?
