More Jeans & T-Shirts ...

I'm quilting again ... It's a Jeans-and-Shirt Quilt this time. More details later, when I have more pictures, and a bit more time to blog.

Knitting again ...

So, several weeks ago, I finished that pair of socks that I was knitting for a year or so ... And, of course, I love them!

Therefore, it made perfect sense to start another pair!

I enjoy the fact that this sort of project is very portable!

I'm working on a Jeans Quilt

This one has been a lot of fun already! I'm hoping to have more pictures soon. But for now, here's my inspiration ... This Pin, a picture of somebody else's jeans quilt. I LOVE the style! Turns out, my rendition of this quilt requires somewhere past 700 of those little colored squares! That's s good thing, though: I'm finally starting to make a dent in my big box of shirt-plaids!

Recently made

I recently finished this baby quilt for a friend ... It's made of T-shirts, so it's super-soft. More pictures soon ... I'm testing out this post-from-phone thing.

I'm finally getting back to finishing this pair of socks ...

Seen at my local Thrift Store

I thought this was neat. Not neat enough to pay money for (since I've always got that that feeling of "Oh, I could make that so easily!"), but interesting nevertheless. 

It's a pillow, embellished with T-Shirt Yarn. What a great idea! Simple concept; striking result.

Nifty, and so simple to construct ... there's a line of stitching holding the T-Shirt Yarn embellishments in place. I like it.

So, I didn't make this, and didn't buy it, but wanted some pics for future reference ... I may try this idea sometime!

Another Progress Milestone

I recently arrived at another patchwork milestone ... 
All the "melon" pieces for my Double Wedding Ring Quilt are assembled.


My layout says I need 84 of these "melons" ... each one is made from two batik arches and two batik squares, and one navy-blue center piece.


So, it's been a lot of piecing ... I started this project about a year ago (see the first post about it here), and it has involved a lot of bits and pieces (see another post here).


I LOVE this fabric! The colors are great, and I think the bright colors look great against the navy blue.


So, now, the thing to do is to start assembling rows ... I'm excited about the progress!
