Starting a few projects as weather cools.

The weather is cooling here in Arizona and tennis is slowing down over Christmas so I would like to get some projects started and some finished.

I am knitting a cowl... simple and close to being finished.  Would like it done while the weather is cool here.  We are looking after a Jack Russell terrier and early morning and evening walks are chilly.

I made some tea towels.  Well... I added some decorative fabric to some tea towels!  Finished.

Sadi, the Jack Russell we are looking after.  Sweet dog.

I made some more hidden wells or majestic mountain blocks.  I think another two sets and then it will be a good size for Quilts of Valour?
I taught a quick demo at the quilt group on Monday on how to do fusible applique so need to finish this up and will have a cute wallhanging.

Am in the midst of quilting this!  Need to just get it finished and bound!!

Some blocks that I started in the summer using some fat quarters that I have had for years.  The blocks are made, now I need to turn them into a quilt top and another good quilt for Quilts of Valour.

And there you have it.  Hopefully, the next post will show a finished quilt?


  1. Whew! alot going on in your house! and you don't need tennis when there is a dog to walk! Maybe I should get a little dog cause our border collie is too strong for me! Then we would have more animals than people and definately more fabric than people!

  2. ha ha... I have way more fabric than people here! This dog is a good size dog for walking and well trained. She doesn't tug though if she decides she doesn't want to go in a certain direction, you can't make her! But she never gets her leash tangled around posts or poles. If you say 'this way' she backs up and is right beside you.
    With a little less tennis over Christmas, it is good to be getting some long walks 3 times a day.
