Okay, here are the Christmas quilts that I could not blog about until after they were given.
This is the one I made for Grace, my son's girlfriend.
I love this one. The pinks and brown had me from the very beginning. It is so perfectly girlie! It was so fun to make and I love the flower squares.
My Christmas list was small this year. I asked for these.
The Pursuit of God by Tozer
God's Pursuit of Man by Tozer
The Attributes of God Book 1 by Tozer
The Attributes of God Book 2 by Tozer
Any of these books, mostly the last two.
Handmaiden Sea Silk, I love this yarn. It is probably the yarn I lust after most. I like tone-on-tone colors, like Berry, Blue Lagoon, Moonstone, Salt Spray, Silver, Waterfall, Topaz, and Smoke.
I want a thumb drive plug for the Mica Bug Miata and a cup holder tray for between the seats.
Michael got me these. I love Tozer books!
Ben got me the Sea Silk. I bought me the other yarn. You gotta love a son that gets you Sea Silk!
Here it is being used!
It goes with the one he did for behind the door.
Country Corner Quilt Shop in Harrison. Last year, we did the same trip in the Miata and I bought one of their batik cracker jack packs. This is the quilt that I finished using it. I took it with me to show them.
My friend, Kathie, had the leaf border fabric and was getting rid of it. I am so glad she thought of me. I have had it about 2 or more years. I knew that it would show me what it wanted to be. I love it.
Notice that I overlapped the leaves along the border and blanket stitched them down. My Michael did a lovely job of helping me pick out the burgandy that I used betwwen the batik log cabin squares.
This cracker jack pack came home with me. It will grow up to be a baby quilt for our Pastor's new baby that is due in the spring.
Then we took Hwy 7 over through Jasper. We stopped by Ozark Cafe and had the BEST coconut cream pie that I have EVER had!
We stopped for a photo opportunity at the Arkansas Grand Canyon.
Then we continued down Hwy 7 to Russellville and visited my favorite yarn store, Knit 2 Together. It really is a great yarn store and the store owner, Stephanie, is a gem.
Since it is now 2012, my Knitmeter has reset itself.My yarn usage total for 2011 was 44,759 yards of yarn. That is only 25.43 miles of yarn or 134,277 ft of yarn.
I completed 118 knitted and crocheted projects. 33 Of those were shawls. I did not include any quilts, weaving or sewing projects in that total.
This was my last project of the year. I finished these at about 11:30 on New Year's Eve.
I cut this one out on Monday and it went together very easily. If you will notice, it is just like my leaf one above. I plan on doing this one in a full sized version for myself.
Do you recognize my hydrangea fabric? It was waiting for the perfect pattern, too.
New year's resolutions: Didn't make any, but I do want to grow in my walk with God. I want my life to honor and glorify Him. That will keep me busy right there. Take the time to go here and listen to the sermon our Student Pastor George Lawson gave this last Sunday. It will really help you rethink 2012. Thank you Pastor George.
