I made this horse picture for her many, many years ago.I made this picture for my SIL, Bob. He is Carolyn's husband. He loves eagles and Native American things.
I also crochet. I made this shawl a few years ago. I gave it to a friend, but was looking through my old pictures and found a picture of it, so decided to share it. I loved the yarn in this. I think it was Bernat. I remember it had a silvery thread running through it. If I remember correctly, it was an easy pattern, but I made this several years ago. May not seem so easy now. LOL
Since this is basically my quilting blog, I figured I'd better show you some quilts. LOL Here are a couple of small quilts that now have new homes. I think I made these in the fall of 2007. The first one is a Thimbleberries pattern. It is called Pumpkin Patch. I really enjoyed making this quilt.
Here is the back of Pumkin Patch. The hand quilting shows up nice on this back. Like I said, this one was a lot of fun.
This quilt was made for my partner in a gift exchange in 2007. She loved blue and snowmen, so I came up with this wall quilt or table topper. Not sure what she decided to use it for.
This back doesn't show the hand quilting very good, but I liked the snowmen in this fabric so used it on the back too.
Ok, I have a surprise planned for my husband. You won't tell, right? LOL Last night he took the time to really look at the rooster quilt and loved it. He had looked at it as I was working on it, but didn't really pay much attention, like husbands do. (grin) Anyway, he was saying how much he liked it. Then he asked if I thought I could make him a wall quilt like it, but with a beagle in the center. I didn't really give him a straight answer, and I am sure he has forgotten by now. I went online and found a beautiful appliqued beagle block. K's birthday is in May. I hope to have him a beagle quilt made by then. I think he will love it. So, though I moaned and groaned about how hard the rooster quilt was, I am so glad that I did it. I learned different techniques and can now spread my wings, so to speak. LOL He knows about my blog, but doesn't read it, so I will probably share pictures as I work on it. I hope to start on it next week. What do you bet that if I share picture's of K's quilt that he will want to start reading my blog. LOL
