Tom's niece had a baby girl a few weeks ago and I have been working on a baby quilt for awhile. I wanted something fresh, crisp and unbabylike in color so chose white and red. I also wanted to make very simple blocks and then at the end decided to make it just a little more complicated by embroidering some red work baby designs. I'm pleased with the outcome and hope the mom and baby will like it as much a I do.
Also, I have almost finished a patchwork embroidery quilt from Anita Goodesigns. Just need to add the binding and then I will hang it in my office. This was a lot of work and took a lot of time to do, but again, I am pleased with the final result.
I have been working like mad crocheting these new scarves. The purple/green/blue one is pom pom yarn as is the brown/beige white one. The yarn can be bought in Phoenix. But the two others are from yarn made in Turkey called Cocoon and I can only find these on the internet. They are so easy to make and a really different look.
