Felted Clogs

 

Here are the "before and after" of the felted clogs. They are so cute and of course DD wants a pair. Its the Fiber Trends Felted Clog Pattern , other wise know as the teach the knitter to swear pattern. The results are worth it and luckily its a small project. Once they are almost dry I will wear them and let them form to my feet.
Its supposed to rain then snow here , I lined up with the rest of greater Hull ( that's where the Ingles is located) and bought food this afternoon. I didn't have any bread or milk as well as a few other items. I hope the snow stays away so I can go to the Dragonfly quilt shop's sale tomorrow.

New Years Resolutions

You know how we are supposed to have resolutions? Well who says they have to be lofty? This quilt has been done for months but I was supposed to give Scarlett the fabric amounts and layout so she can make my quilt into a pattern. I blame the delay on a computer crash and Christmas.....

I heard of a couple who adopted 2 little brothers and challenged Kathy Jo to make one of the boys a quilt. ( The couple is friends with her DD)  She made 2 tops before I got mine done. Her's is next on the quilt frame. This fabric came from Joann's and features 3 Blind Mice.


Its been a very different week of weather . 60's and sunny after 17 is quite a dicotomy. I got to ride 2 times this week. Thankfully I only got an inch of rain this week but more is coming.
More resoultions have been marked off the list.  New quilting brouchures ( all due to the new computer ) are in the works. I hate figuring out new programs. Then figuring out in mid print for DD that the new printer ink I bought was the wrong one.  The best new year resolution is getting my house clean. Hopefully next week I will get the cleaning crew in to clean. They will come twice a month , so its an on going resolution.
Next ? TAXES

Cold Saturday

Here is my newest Log Cabin Table Runner. I hope to teach my method again at Dragonfly quilt shop in the spring. I cut my log cabin strips different from most.
This is another colorway of the Logcabin table runner.

It's a really cold day down south. I guess I should be glad its just cold. The tree is down and I have as clean a house as its going to get. Now I hope to load my new quilt on the machine and get some quilting done today.
Happy New Year!
