A few small but fun projects

I am trying to catch up posting some of the things that I have been working on.

My local guild was donating place mats to  a local organization and although I couldn't go to the sewing day, I wanted to contribute, so I made this first one from a Simply Color mini charm pack and 1 Fat quarter of fabric for the border and binding.

This one used up some scraps from another project and I used it to test drive a new thread.  I used Superior's new Micro Quilter, that is 100 wt.  I went fast and wanted to see if it would break.  Nope!  it is a fine but strong thread and I can see it will come in handy for certain applications where I don't want heavy thread build up or just want the thread to disappear.

This is a little fleece throw that I quilted for Sandra.  This is a new panto called Monkey Jungle and I think it turned out really cute.  Sandra took this one to give away on her recent trip to China and had asked if I had a monkey panto to coincide with the Year of the Monkey.

You can tell I am behind in posting photos as the ground is now white not leaf covered!

Now I saved the best for last.  I don't really knit, but when I saw the pattern for this hat I couldn't stop thinking about it.  Sandra is a talented knitter and we traded skills and she made me the most awesome hat ever!  Could there me a most perfect had for me??


  1. That definitely is the perfect hat for you. Lovely placemats.

  2. What, no picture of you modeling the hat? So sweet! Now you just need it to get cold enough for you to be able to wear it!
