Here is the Tapestry sweater. It's really slow going but a beautiful pattern. I am almost to the waist. It's a longer sweater.
That's it for knitting for now. Now for quilting projects. We (my applique group that I have been a member of for over 10 years) are working on "Welcome to the North Pole" another Piece'o'Cake pattern from way back when I joined the group. Then we moved on to other projects and most of us never finished this one. It's way cute and we are doing it 25% bigger than in the book. I will embellish the quilt after it's quilted. There will be all kinds of stuff on this quilt, sequins, beads, braid, buttons, and maybe glitter and fancy paints.
I have gotten some glitter onto this block already and had most of it done years ago.
This block is the next block that I finished. Way back then, when I had only ever done a small amount of applique, this project scared me to death. Lots of tiny, tiny pieces to be sewn. I don't use fusible webbing very often and try not to. So, I am learning and growing!
Is this not cute? I don't have the little signs on the different buildings yet, but this one is the Royal Toy Works, the Candy Cane Factory and the Hats & Mittens Shoppe.
The Reindeer Barn. Talk about tiny pieces. omg There is a little N on one of the front feet of the Reindeer on the weather vane. Finished size of that N is about 3/8" x 3/8"
This is the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. While reorganizing my fabric stash and UFO's I found a whole box of Christmas fabric. I love this plaid with the gold threads running through it. I love the pattern and it's wonky windows. So fun.
This is the Japanese/denim quilt that I finally was able to finish (thanks to friend Malinda the machine quilter). This was a wedding present for my Nephew and his new Wife. So, they have been married for 4 or 5 years now, but better late than never. The Japanese fabrics are really beautiful. Stamp printed with Indigo in wonderful organic prints. I couldn't resist naming the quilt "I'm Turning Japanese". Heh, heh. It's a big quilt and is meant to be that quilt that's used constantly for years and years and years.
I am thinking now of other stuff to show and tell. But, will take more pictures and so you need to check back later. :>)
