No fabric here

Had do one that has no fabric in it. This is mom's visiting dignitary. He is going to be one spoiled rotten cat when he heads out next month to meet up with his family in Italy.

More fun ways to use fabric


I know you are wondering if I knit anymore. Well, I do, however all things are on needles.


These two items were birthday gifts for a friend. The top is a dog food mat and the next is a pillowcase.

Our 5th annual knitting retreat happened this weekend. It was a great success even with three feet of snow in Buena Vista.

We had lots of good food, and laughs and shopping at our favorite yarn shop in Chaffee County.


One of my knitters found herself a new obsession. Can't wait to see what she does with weaving.

And we found a little herd of expectant momma bisons about five miles from where we stayed. Look at all that spring snow.

Can't wait for next year, already make plans for swag and meals.

Strip Blocks continued


This will be a long process to build 110 of these blocks but I am doing them a few at a time.

The fabric will give me that memory piece as well.

Who says giraffes and zombies don't go together?

Fabric Travel Tray


Here is a fast gift item if you have family or friends that travel.

It is sandwiched around some medium interfacing and will lie flat for packing when unsnapped.

I hand sewed the snaps in using the Quilt lines as align.

Meet Miss Meep


Meep is this year's addition to the annual knitting retreat.

She has her own pjs and sleeping bag for the occasion.

The clothing patterns come from Shiny Happy World. The sleeping bag I had to design myself. The quilt is another from the postage stamp tutorial I found.

She will be a big hit with the ladies.
