I'm still creating!

I have made several projects since the last post, but haven't posted them. I'm thinking no one is even reading this so I've kind of quit posting. Anyway here is a couple more projects. One is a quilt I just finished that was a friendly competition between a friend and myself. It's called a Tisket A Tasket and is a BunnyHill Design. I loved working on this quilt! It is all hand applique and a small wall size. The other is a little hat I made for my pharmacist's new granddaughter. It is my Christmas version of Jill Eaton's Twizzle Topper.

And Now a Quilt for Kaiya!!

The challenge was on to make a quilt for Kaiya. Her parents wanted her nursery colors to be fushia and purple with touches of gray. They also wanted Eeyore but soon found out that in most stuffed animals, Eeyore is BLUE not gray! I designed this quilt for Kaiya and made Eeyore gray. Its very simple but fits the nursery perfectly!

A Sweater for Kaiya

Just another little pretty for the upcoming Granddaughter! I can't believe she will join the family in two months. We are so excited to meet her. This was made out of two skeins of Zara Plus and the pattern is a Minnowknits pattern. It was very easy and quick to do. I hope she is going to like it!

Kaiya's Quilt

I finished the first of my handmade things for our little Kaiya. She will be here in April or early May and we can't wait to meet and hold her!!! This was a line of fabric called Alpha Buddies and it the flannel version. It is so soft and was quilted by my machine quilter Krista Withers to keep it cuddly. It was a quick and easy quilt and I'm sure it's the first of many.

Just a Little Something Sweet

I was having a day where I just wanted to make something little for myself. I didn't know what, but I have so many big projects I'm working on that I needed to accomplish something small and quick. When I went to my quilting group at Carriage Country Quilts I saw this little kit to make a needlecase. It fit the bill perfectly! I lose my needles ALL the time and I thought this may solve the problem. My husband says "no, you will probably lose the whole case now!" LOL He is probably right, but it sure was fun to make!
