Making Things

Although I should be finishing up my 3rd WIP of the year I've actually only finished 1 1/2! (yes I'm still making coiled rope bowls)
The quilt top I finally finished is from 2011. I remember when I put it away it just wasn't coming out like I'd envisioned it. When I took it out to work on it last week I decided to just nix the solids I was going to use and make it a small table topper.

I also started a new table runner with one of my all time favorite color combinations, coral and khaki. These fabrics are from Riley Blake.

On the crochet front, I've finished Lady Rosamund and Give Into Fall. Both of these shawls just need to be blocked.

And of course here are the bowls!

After missing the sign up date last year for Hands 2 Help I was sure not to do the same thing this year. If you are interested click the icon on the right side of the page at the top.

Waiting for Spring

Although it really hasn't been a bad winter here in the north east, we are expecting a snow storm this evening. Actually the weather has been a bit strange. By next Wednesday it will be in the 70's! Gotta love that El Nino! So I've been doing my best to bring Spring to my sewing room with all of those gorgeous colors I love!

This week I'm finishing up a rainbow mini for my swap partner on IG.

I used this Laura Gunn Painter's Canvas fabric I won in an Instagram giveaway. It's paired with my favorite moda muslin that I buy by the bolt. It's taken me a while to come up with an idea for quilting this, but today is the day.
On the crochet front, I have 4 rows to go on my Lady Rosamund. Of course I already have a crochet along project ready and waiting when Rosamund is done.

And I couldn't end this post without showing the latest coiled rope bowls.

I'm not addicted to them or anything.........
