A New Year

OK. 2013 is THE year to get those UFO's done. I mean done. Yes, I mean it. This year. Yes.

I have been working on a number of new patterns, both crochet and sewing that I plan to share with you this year! Two new scarf patterns, a few pillows and a new clutch!  

The end of last year just swished by. Not sure how the last two months got away from me as it did, but here we are!

Here is a sneak peek at one of my scarf patterns... The Caleye Cowl!

Look out 2013!

Rainbows and Flags Quilt Finished!

I started this project over 8 months ago. Never thought it would actually take that long, but I like starting projects before finishing other ones. Anyone else out there like that??? :)

This is the Bundles of Joy quilt pattern by Ryan Walsh. When I first saw this pattern, it instantly reminded me of Swedish flags and I knew this would be the perfect gift for my Swedish sister-in-law and her expecting little boy.

My daughter helped me pick all of the fabrics. She wanted rainbow colors. We couldn't find a red we really liked for the blocks, so we added the red binding. Loved how that turned out. My son arranged the entire top and helped keep them in order.  I was really so happy that my kids wanted to help out so much. I think it makes the quilt that much more special of a gift for their new little cousin!

I added the project to my Threadbias page. Go and check it out!

Chunky Green Circle Scarf

Another lovely scarf for fall. Although the weather here in California is not co-operating!  In the 90's here today... ugh.

Another gift for a special friend. This time made with a superwash wool. Hope it does not prove to be too warm for her!

Details on making your own from this lovely pattern by Lindsi at People Webs can be found on my ravelry page.

Orange bright triangle cowl

Just in time for fall!  The weather here is finally starting to cool down.

I just love the color! I selected a soft baby yarn, since it's receipient lives here in California where our winters are very mild.  The drape is very light and because of the generous length of the cowl, it is easy to wrap twice!

Wonderful pattern, I plan to make one for myself too!

All the details can be found on my ravelry page.
