Thank you Judith. I am kinda hooked now even though I love other crafts. I next want to make a mug rug but can't seem to find a pattern I like. My auntie tatted with a shuttle and made lace for our pillow cases when I was a youngin'. I never got the rhythm and knack of the shuttle. The needle is so much easier. If you start use size 3, 5 or 10 thread. It is a little thicker and easier to work with. I bought a set of 4 needles and use the fattest one with size 3 thread. I use the next fattest one for size 10 thread.

Judith,

I love it too - i'm using it as the backing of the baby quilt and i love the way it matches the green in the main fabric. That's my favorite part of quilting - finding fabrics that really compliment each other. I did see the blue and there may be a pink as well.

Have a blessed day:-)

Will do, Judith! I worked on them last night so I am closer. I'm hoping to finish them in the next two days!

Well, friends...I finally have a pic to share of the newest member of the tribe: August Michael, born 1/27/17. This pic was taken yesterday:.
I'm a little under the weather again and have to run errands tomorrow; but, Thursday, I will start working to finish last February's Valentine quilt. Wish me luck as tasks seem to be easily reordered.

Thank you, Judy! He is the sweetest, goodnatured child. I'm trying to take better care of myself. Didn't realize i'm not 55 anymore.

I finally finished my monster pants. I'm happy with how they turned out. Just a little long on his legs.

Krista,
Those are adorable! And don't worry, those little legs will grow into the pants! LOL
Here's a little trivia, If you measure him when he turns two and double his height, that's how tall he will be as an adult. This worked with all 5 of my husband's brother and sisters and all 3 of our girls.

Thanks Dena, Judy, and Judith!

Judy, I will have to remember that! I am really curious how tall he will be since I am short and my husband is super tall! Do I measure right when he turns two? Or later in the year?

I have now started working on some more crochet projects that need to get finished. I am working on some more slippers that a friend has asked me to make. I finished the right foot last night and will start the left today.

Dustin, my supervisor (a young, unmarried man), ordered me to make those pants for his future son.

boyfriend found me a cute table and hutch combo online, we picked it up and I've set it up all cute in my sewing room. This forced me to trash, donate, or organize three tubs' worth of random sewing stuff- my room is getting better all the time!

Thanks Kiersten.

Marie, that is so funny! I want to see your when they are done.

Thank you, Judy. I will make myself a reminder in my calendar.

Rachel, your hutch looks way nice. Super cute and organized!

I am currently working on a quilt for myself finally after making several for other people. This is my first one with triangles and I'm nervous about making it all match up nicely. Perfection is not my goal just as long as there's a pattern to the madness.

Krista love the pants. Wish I had found that pattern when my girls were little.

Rachel love the hutch. I wish I could find a thread holder like that. I have a plastic bin for my thread at the moment. I will show my husband this picture and see if he can make me one.

A thread holder like that can be found on many craft company websites such as Herrschners.
