Ruffled Kitchen Towel

I had a difficult time parting with this towel, but the recipient loved it.  Of course, have I made a similar one for myself yet?  Nope.

Wouldn't this be cute with Valentine's fabrics?!

Balls, Baby!

Another baby boy will be here soon.  I asked my friend Kriston what the decor was in the nursery & she sent me a link to Babies-R-Us.  Here is what I came up with to match:

This one has already been gifted, so no worries about him going to college with a baby-sized quilt.

Books, Baby!

My newest nephew turns 1 month old today.  He's actually my great-nephew, but that makes me sound so much older than I am. ~wink~ 

Knowing I had little time before his arrival, I was going to make this quilt over my Christmas break.  I dug out the remaining Tidings and Tales fabric that I had and played.  This is what I came up with:

Books, Baby!

I'm sure I don't have to worry about his delightful parents seeing this.  Hopefully I'll get the rest of the gift package finished and shipped before he goes to college turns 2 months old.



Lovely Crafty Home

Really, I've been busy

Or should that be: I've been really busy?  Busy not only with work, but in a quilty sort of way. 

Since Thanksgiving, I've designed three baby quilts.  Two are finished and one just needs binding.  Designed and made a quilted table runner for a Christmas gift.  Made other little Christmas gifts.  Made an assortment of bibs and burp cloths.   

And, finally finished a quilted throw for me! 

I used Pat Sloan's pattern and Amy Butler fabric.  I really like how it turned out & it's a perfect size (about 52" x 68") for snuggling with on the couch in this cold winter weather.

I started piecing the top about a year ago, then pieced the back last summer. 

And so it sat unfinished...

I think Jacie's face is saying, "I dare you."  So, a couple of weeks ago I took her up on her dare.

I'd show a picture of it draped on the couch, but the silk plants near by are very dusty.
