Caravan Hug Quilt

Over the past several years, our Caravan Quilt group has made hug quilts for our friends in time of need. This past November, we made two quilts for Shirley and Barb. Shirley's quilt was finished and presented to her in February. What a great job everyone did.

Knit bag

Even though I love to quilt, I can't sew while sitting in a car. Motion and light in the car won't let me do it. But I can knit. So I keep simple knit projects for those times when sewing isn't possible. Last summer I purchased a unique ball of yarn. After three attempts, I finally arrived at a size and combination that I liked. The result was this knit bag. I love it, but have issues with it stretching. So I plan to line it with fabric, hopefully limiting the size of it.

Next knit project? Maybe a jacket. I will need something for our next road trip.

Baby Roo's quilt

My niece is having a baby later this winter. I love making quilts for each one. I used a jelly roll of bright prints that was perfect. She loved the quilt. I can't wait until the little one arrives!

Pinewood Derby

Lucas joined Cub Scouts this year. Many of his friends are in his den. Making a pinewood derby car was a new experience for him. Next year he wants his car to go faster. We will see.
Lego Racer did a great job, and finished all it's races.
