I have moved all the posts for my "Dear Jane" quilt to a separate Blog.

December 28th

The stuffed animals I gave a Christmas gifts seemed to be a big success.

The kids are busy playing with all the new goodies.

The cat decided the day after Christmas that we had to take down the tree right away. He knocked the tree over, breaking the stand, and splashing ornaments with the nearby cup of hot chocolate. I can say there were very few casualties to the ornaments. We will have to buy a new tree before next Christmas.

I hope a very Happy Holiday season was had by everyone.

Last minute finish.

My Little Pony, from vintage pattern. I made up the colors and hip symbol as I went along. I used ribbon for the hair and rainbow eyelashes from Halloween. The roses on her hip are iron on patches, sewn down to make more permanent.

It's a Shirt..It's a Dog

A dog made from a Recycled Shirt. He has a pocket to store a bone in. And the shirt collar forms his collar! The collar was just a tiny bit larger but I wiggled it into place.

Christmas is on its way

Myra's Christmas Dress. It is finally finished. It took so much longer than planned (I injured my foot)

This is my Christmas Tree. Everything is a snowman or a snowflake! And the Star is Both.

Fun Stuff

One Dinosaur Egg. IT was to be about 10 inches tall. unfortunately the directions were wrong and each square on the grid should have equaled a half inch. I think It would have stood up better at a smaller size. Wait until you see the Dinosaur, also twice the size it should have been.

Hello Kitty Waffles! Yummy! The little Bunny is my favorite.

A knitted Fish, Kitchen scrubby. Too cute to use! and My second finished knit project. I used size 3 needles and worsted weight yarn. I have no Idea what the pattern called for. It was written in Japanese. The best I could tell was it used a size 8 needle which would have been a size 11 in US needles. But what Yarn?
