More donation quilts for kids

27 01 2017

Here are a few things that I worked on over the holiday season,  just to keep myself sane.

Sometimes it’s fun to just sit and sew, with no huge or magnificant plans in mind.  These five are the results of just such playing.

These quilts measure approximately 36″ x 42″, just the right size to sew and quilt easily.  All of these quilts have been  donated to the Children’s Quilt Project wing of EBHQ’s Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project.

All squares with great African animal fabric donated by Jane S.  Love this fabric–it made at least three quilts for the kids.

And  these Dalmation puppies on red played very well with some great black and white fabrics.

New holiday stockings

6 01 2017

Here are my most recent Christmas stocking creations.

In the past, I have made stockings mainly for the cats, but this time they were made for two of the kind humans who take such good care of the cats,  just like Dave and Wendy do.  (See their stockings seen HERE.)

Shannon’s was a lot of fun to make and is the only one on which I’ve used different colored flosses for the name.  This fabric was so fun and wacky that I thought the multi-colors would work well.

Since I’m always keeping count, these two bring the total count up to 15.   I hope Santa fills these and all the others with treats and fun every year.
