Elaine's Quilt

Elaine had me quilt this quilt for her in which she did some lovely embroidery work.

It was quite fun to quilt just to check out all the different birds.

Hawaiian Flowers

This is a small Hawaiian quilt that I started earlier this summer.  It is one of those that I took with me on small trips.   It is an easy applique.  I also  take it outside here at home when the weather is wonderful for sitting outside visiting with friends and watching the children play.
It came from an idea I found on pinterest. It's so easy to copy things that way.  I am still working on applique borders to go around the whole thing.  It will be wall hanging size when completed.

Dear Jane Continuued

These are the last 4 blocks of the rows A,B, and C.  So now I have one long section completed.  

These are very fun to do.  Since they are small, they don't take too much time.  Most of them are paper pieced, which is not my forte but I like it for the small pieces that are involved.

Yes, some are a little wonky but I don't mind.  This quilt is not meant for a show.

Filet Crochet Doily

This doily was made from a pin I found on pinterest.  It had instructions in Spanish? and a chart.  I followed the chart.  It did call for a different stitch for the flower which I never did figure out.
I look on the internet for other filet crochet stitches and this stitch doesn't seem to be used in English speaking countries.  Oh well...
It is a lovely doily though.

I used a cotton crochet thread that I had hanging around and it seems I had just enough.  Whew!!!

My Ravelry link.  Here you can find the chart of the original.
