Almost half finished with a quilt. I am hand quilting it sometimes I hate it almost sick of looking at it. Want it on the bed by the first of Jan.

Need to finish outlining a cross stitch but the quilt has priority right now.

Of course there are always the hand made gifts for Christmas which seem to get pushed aside.

Crocheting more hats and neck warmers for a bazaar on 12.3. Since is has hovered from 0 to -20 here for a couple of weeks, hats and neck warmers are a "hot" (pun intended) item. I am making them nice and thick.

Couldn't get my computer to like my camera for a few days. Now they are friends again. Here's a cupcake hat with sprinkles ordered by a farmgirl.



A scarf from the Hitchhiker pattern on Ravelry.

Julie, LOVE the cupcake hat and the scarf. You are so talented! I have a feeling I'm going to read about you one day in Where Women Create magazine telling the story of how you started your multi-million dollar business in your living room! Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Judith...here is my first sushi-scarf. Loved making it...I revamped the pattern more
to my liking however. Made one and didn't like how wide and long it was...so I ripped
it all out and started over. Second one pictured above I made I chained 20 across but
next time I will even go lower to 17 across. Then on the White I only did 42 rows
instead of 62...it was Very Fun and I am going to start a second one.

Grace...oh the aprons look so adorable on DD and DGKids. I bet they all loved them!
Nice Job Grandma!!!

Hugs,
Peggy

Peggy, your sushi scarf looks really pretty! I know what you mean by it being long..I am adjusting the size (length) according to the girls' heights. A couple really tall, and the rest are shorties. Also, I am using a variety of pinks so the girls can tell them apart. Great job!

Katmom, love those aprons! You just look more like sister than mom.

What can I say about those cupcake hats! Yummy! And that scarf looks just elegant.

I found a neat pattern for some bookmarks that I want to make here: http://crochetme.com/media/p/88334.aspx I bought one in Colorado I think it was, for like $5...I'm thinking I can make a whole bunch for that amount if I do it myself! I'm excited to find stuff to make these! That will be my "handmade pay-it-forward 2011", I think....

Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself.

Grace that Christmas dude apron is really eye-catching! JOY indeed.

Peggy you did a great job on the sushi roll scarf! Makes me hungry just looking at it!! Perhaps some soy-sauce mittens would go great with it..wonder how you could do that.

Pam, that is a cute bookmark pattern. It opens up a lot of ideas for using some really cool beads....post photos when you get them finished!

I have a new handbag in the works. I'm using some of the buttons I've purchased from Melody's LongTallSallys etsy shop. They really set off the vintage feel of the handbag.

That book thong is really a neat idea. I might try some for Christmas but have an idea percolating to do it just a bit differently.
Great aprons.
That sushi scarf is probably about the only way anyone could get me near sushi. ;>)

Just finished my second sushi-scarf. They are so quick and easy.
May try a color change on the next one. I love sushi...but most
sushi has the black (seaweed) inside the sticky white rice. So, I
may change up those two colors and see what I think.

blessings,
peggy

I added on to some pink slipper socks that Cheryl Keyes made for me in a barter - and turned them into sock monkey slippers to go with my new sock monkey pajamas. Thanks Cheryl, they are nice and warm and cozy.

Grace, Love the aprons! Your grandchildren are adorable. Peggy, Are you Wonder Woman in disguise? You never cease to amaze me--I didn't know you knitted! Michelle, How creative you are to embellish the slippers--simply charming. Will post photos of projects today. I've been sewing up a storm for holiday gifts these past two weeks.

Some of the holiday gifts I've recently stitched up. A children's cupcake print apron, chef hat and heat proof oven mitts for a fellow farmgirl's daughter. And a vintage-inspired Christmas apron for same farmgirl's apron swap. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

More gifts I've sewed: a vintage inspired Christmas apron for my married daughter (I'm making matching oven mitts for her too)and an interpretation of a painting that hung in my sister's villa bedroom in Tuscany this past summer. It was a combo "thank you for planning our dream trip" and birthday gift. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Nice work Dianne...you have been busy! Love the Christmas aprons! Did you make your own stained-glass wall hanging pattern? The detail stitching is awesome!
