Aiden's Mater hat. I loom knitted the hat and crocheted the applique's for the hat. I don't have a pattern, I looked at a photo.

Have a great weekend!

Hats Hats and More Hats

I wanted to make hats for charity. I was going to make them for babies but the area hospital only wants purple hats and a list of of other things the hats could not have. The list was so disheartening. I had made a few hats before I found the info out so I will just give them away to whoever needs them
I don't make very good tassels. Some Daddy will think the camo with the pink bow is perfect for his baby girl. I thought it was cute.

This is my favorite hat. Probably will fit an older baby.

Lacy is working with her church, a lady from the American Legion and the Dallas VA to help the homeless veterans in our area. I was shocked at the number of homeless veterans.  They will be having a food drive gathering cans of food that does not require a can opener and bottles of water, juice, etc. I wanted to do something to support this cause so I am making hats.

If you would like to help with this cause, please contact me at

Happy Easter!

January 2013

More hand embroidery. My machine died that had the needle up down and the speed control. I tried working on and finally took it to the shop. I'm not paying that to have it fixed. :( Yes, I can do some applique' on my older machine, it just can't be too complicated.

I made a test block to make sure my hex and embroidery would fit on the size block Linda and I worked out. I turned it into a pillow for Jon.

A mini quilt to hang beside the front door. Yes, that it is lots and lots of french knots.

This little bag is for Chelsi's Sunday school teacher.

I just love the design on this pillow. Makes me smile every time I look at it. This pillow is going to Lacy's.
Until next time.

December Embroidery

I wanted to learn some new embroidery stitches and the first one was a french knot. So for practice I made Lacy this little heart.

Then I couldn't stop.
That's a terrible picture maybe you can tell what I did.

December BOW

I'm still enjoying the BOW of the week that Rhonda is doing but tomorrow is the last one. :(
I still haven't decided on a border but I will before I finish the last block.

Happy stitching!
