Gideon is my newest grandchild. He is 5 1/2 weeks old. Here he is wearing a little outfit I knitted him. It is a warm, soft,cuddly, furry looking thing. Just nice for the cold weather we've had.
It took a bit to find the yarn for this. The blue is from Joann's and the white is from Hobby Lobby. Those aren't normally the places I find yarn, but I did want to see the texture, especially of the white chenille type thing.
This is Melanie wearing a romper I knitted her. Even though it's not summer. it goes great with tights.
I took a pattern I had and adjusted it for the dots.
This last one is one I made for Melanie when she was first born. She outgrew it quite quickly.
It is a quick knit only in newborn size. If your baby is born 9 lbs., don't knit it.

I just finished the quilt that I have been making for Melanie, my almost 4 month old granddaughter.
It's a copy of a picture I saw with a lot of changes to it.
These were all fabrics that I had hanging around in my stash. I'm really trying not to buy fabrics for a while so that I can use up the things that I have.
And of course I am showing Melanie really enjoying her new blanket. Isn't she a cutie?

I decided to try making these cute little animals that I found on pinterest for prizes for my daughter's sewing class students. I have been knitting and crocheting some, but this is a new idea that is rather fun.
I did a lot of machine sewing but then handsewed the front to the back.

This is the Magic Vine that I have been working on this winter. I realized I needed a better fall wall hanging and saw a picture of this design in a magazine and copied it. It's been pretty simple and rather fun. It is great to have something like this to do when watching Sunday football games or when we go away for a few days.
Now it's time for the real magic to start when I get it quilted.
