An all over stipple was great for this one.

A customer came to me with some jeans and shirts and asked me to make a quilt for her. Here it is so far.
The fabric behind the quilt is the fleece she gave me for the backing. I will roll it over to be binding also.
Two of the shirts had this embroidery embellishments that add a nice touch to the quilt.
This quilt took 2 pairs of jeans and 3 shirts to put together. I will not use any batting as the quilt is heavy enough as it is.

A friend asked me to knit a hat for a lady that she sees regularly when she goes to her chemo appointments.
The chemo hats that are given away are rather plain and mostly too large for this lady. She likes nice yarns and nice fancier hats. So I knitted this one. My friend who is giving the hat is modeling it for me.
As I've said before, I love doing lace work and this hat was no exception. I may do more of this pattern.
I did the flower from a couple of different patterns. The first flower I knitted was too small. I knitted a larger one and used the smaller one as the center of the flower.

It got too big for me to handle when I was laid up with my foot, so in August I put it away. But now it's out and I added the borders. With all the trapunto, it's rather like some hilly places. It makes me wonder how it's going to lay on my frame.
I think I'm going to have to do some machine basting or stabilizing before I get into really quilting this.
But I have quilted trapunto quilts before and had no problem. I don't know why these mountains bother me.
Come back for more.
