High Fiber––Careful Ventures

Quilters, I'm down to another corner.

High Fiber––Warm Hands, Hot Tea and Clean Dishes

The tea cozy is done. This one seems to keep the tea hotter than the old one. Maybe it's the deep ribs.



I altered the pattern a bit, because my teapot is smaller, really a one-person teapot. Here is the Ravelry project page with information on my…

Winter weather has arrived

Boy am I glad today is my day off work.  It's been snowing here in the northwest for the last few hours.  Sense I didn't have anything else to do I just finished shopping on Connecting Threads.  

I do have to confess I just took apart one of my quilts.  I was having a really difficult time trying to quilt it by hand.  I've replaced the premium Muslim backing with flannel and finally started quilting again.  It's much easier to work the hand quilting now.   The premium Muslim wasn't…

Birthday gift for granddaughter

Since I don't go out anywhere right now, you all know why, I used a pattern that I had and flannel from my stash to make granddaughter Addie a nightgown. Then I ordered an 18" doll dress pattern and had just enough flannel for a matching nightgown. First time making a doll dress!…
