Oh my, I guess O I haven't been around in a while.  I do need to stop by occasionally and let my faithful friends know what I am up to, I guess.  So here it is:

How much fun is this!  Won't a 5 year old just really love it?
I sure hope so!  It's for her January birthday.

These leggings are for her big sister who will be 17 in January.  Lots of January and February birthdays in our family!

I haven't started on the leggings yet, though.  Since I won't be with any of my children for Thanksgiving this year (We will see them all at Christmas, though-YIPPEE) , I thought the least I could do was send Gary the Gobbler to help them with the dishes.

I've also been having lots of fun with some embroidery.  Great to get back to a type of needle work that I've done so little of in the past several years.  I'll share more of that next time I stop by.

Time to take a break

OK, I've played around with quite a bit of leftover fabric from years' past Christmas pajamas.    This is the last of the baby quilts from that fabric.  And it MUST be the last bit of quilt sewing that I do for a while.  There are this year's jammies to be done, ya' know.


I did have some other fabric on hand that I used for a baby blanket for one of my very first on online friends who is having a baby in January.

So now there will be no more quilting until after this year's PJs are made, but I am still doing some knitting.

This was going to be a vest for my grandson, but we decided that the yarn was too feminine, so we were going to save it and give it to my granddaughter for her birthday in August.  But it would be WAY too big for her even then, so guess what?  I tried it on and it fits, so I  HAVE  A  NEW  VEST.    I've been wanting to knit something for myself and I finally have, even though it was unknowingly!  
Sorry it's sideways;  I'm still learning my new computer.  It seems that everytime I download photos they go to a different storage place, sometimes with the flip option and sometimes not.  ARGH!

But on to better things:   How FUN is this! This is the start of a vest for my granddaughter who will be 5 in January!

Well, I'd better go cut out some more fabric and get crackin' on the Christmas jammies.
