Grand Staff Cardigan

It's about time for an update on the Grand Staff Cardigan.

 

I'm working on the back, from the bottom up.  I have finished the hem section and I have two stripe sections done.  Six more to go and then I think I start shaping the arm holes.

Granny's Quilt

I have been slowly quilting away on Granny's Quilt.  These quilt blocks were made for her in 1935 in Missouri.  I'm not quite sure who made them because I don't recognize any of the names and I thought she always lived in Idaho.

 

She gave this quilt top to me before she passed with the stipulation that I quilt it.  I chose a simple clamshell pattern because I didn't want to detract from the exquisite embroidery work.

 

My friend Mary had the perfect red for the borders and she gave it to me.  It is special in more ways than one.

Giraffe Minky Blanket

I made another minky blanket.  I used this wild dot and the minky fabric.

I found the giraffe fabric while I was in Boise visiting my sister.

Little Blue Eyes Grass

One of my favorite plants these days is Little Blue Eyes Grass.

 

It's not really a grass.  It just clumps like grass and the leaves look like grass.

 

I love the happy little faces on the flowers.  You can bet I will be planting more of them.
