This quilt from a customer of mine had extra fabric throughout the top (as shown in the first photo) that needed to be worked in without pleating or tucks. A fun challenge :-). She wanted the machine embroidery to be showcased and didn't care how it was quilted; I'm pleased with the final result.

Granddaughter Taylor attended the Over the Mountain July Guild Meeting where she worked on creating a patchwork Christmas stocking for herself. Afterwards, I made Grandson Zachary his own Christmas stocking. He didn't stay in one place very long (as one should expect from a six year old), so here you see him at the Albuquerque Natural History Museum.
On a recent and quick turn-around trip to San Diego, I knitted most of my first 'to be felted purse' using Lion Wool. Once home, I finished the purse. Then, I realized that the pattern (a Berroco free pattern, "Jasperuvia") made no mention of purse straps and so I improvised. I knitted three 4-stitch i-cords and braided them prior to washing, leaving tails at each end to facilitate a creative attachment. Pictures of the final product to be forthcoming.

Well, okay, it's not so little :-) I love this bag, made with pet screen mesh and all cotton quilt fabric. I've already toted (intentional pun) it to San Diego on our quickie road trip to pick up the grandkids (Taylor 13 and Zachary 6). It carried my knitting. My current project is a felted purse--my first felting project.
