Holiday Projects


I just finished these adult socks. I had knit child socks for a friend's daughter and decided to make a pair for my friend. They'll have matching mother-daughter socks. I think this will make a nice Christmas gift for them. I still have to wash and block them but they're done as far as I'm concerned!


I also started quilting this today. I thought it was so cute! It was on sale at my local quilt shop. I think it will be a cute decoration for my house. I'm about halfway done quilting it. I'm just quilting an all over stipple/meander. So fun!

I've been quilting Arcadia Avenue but decided to rip out one area. I just didn't like it. Of course, my eye kept focusing on the quilting I didn't like. After much thought, I decided to rip it out and quilt something else. I'm ready to start quilting the third block but I had to fix this first. I hate having Quilt OCD!!

Here's the vintage quilt with the binding all attached! I can't believe this quilt is finished. It felt like a privilege to me ...
