The weather looks more like December than March, good thing it is short lived and moving out soon.
A great day to prep a really cute table runner for my neighbor that hosts the monthly potluck.
And I am ready to put the binding on my Knitty Kitty quilt. So fun to have a finished product within 10 days of start. This will be my favorite chair throw for winter from now on.
Finishing things on a cold day is the best reward before a busy week of work~!

It is a new year with a new series of Charm School classes.
I am excited that we are starting with a bag. It is called Whatcha Got Bag and uses a piece of vinyl as the window section. Then you chop up a charm pack to make the little 2 1/2 squares to frame the window, with fun fabric inside to view through the window.
The bag sits up with a boxy bottom and a zippered top. I am making the large size first that looks like it will hold at least a single skein knitting project. What a fun way to combine two wonderful hobbies.
My homework is finished and I am ready for class. More to come.

This is the Skeppa Hat by Sarah Jo Burch, you can find it at Ravelry.
I am about a third of the way done. I am using a cotton blend yarn that I got last year at Serendipity for headbands and have now repurposed for this hat. I am calling it Melon because it reminds me of Cantaloupe and Honeydew colors.
Another fun knit with a useful purpose for spring wearing, at least we think spring is coming.
Happy knitting to all~!

It is all the fault of the flannel, I could not help myself. When I saw this in the quilt shop I knew that I had to design a chair quilt to go with it.
The flannel is called Knitty Kitty by Kanvas. It had lots of complementary pieces to go with it but I have so many leftovers of red, black, white and grey these days that I knew there would be enough to create charm squares to do the quilt top.
I did need a border to make it large enough. Currently I am quilting it on my home machine and will show you the final project when I get it done. It is so much fun to create something from just that kind of inspiration.
Wishing all wonderful projects to keep t
hem busy through this long winter~!
