 Oh my, I haven't kept up to date with my blogging in a little while.
I did finish those two quilts from the same fabric.  The blocks in the pinwheel one are 12 inches, so it's a nice size "lap rug" or quilt for an young adolescent girl.

The other has smaller blocks -- about 7 inch blocks so it will be for a baby.

In the meantime, I've also been spending evenings knitting.  I just finished this sweater for my grandson's October birthday.

And just for fun, I decided to finally try some "tiny" knitting from a pattern book that my daughter sent me.
And my little hot dog is not nearly as tiny as the instructions call for.  I just don't have very many colors of fingering yarn.  So my hot dog is made with size 5 needles instead of size one.  I'm not sure I could have even done it on size ones -- I'm too clumsy!

It's not the kind of knitting I usually do or am "in to" but it is LOTS OF FUN !

OMG. Mom, I love that little hot dog! It's meat free too, so we can have it today! Hope you're having a good day, I love you. Going to put away 400$ worth of groceries....which doesn't take as long as it should.

I discovered your blog because you have the same first name as mine! I'm not kidding. You may check me out on, because I like to quilt too! I hope you continue to have a great day!
