Today I will share a few projects I have completed recently. First up is a twin-sized quilt featuring Super Mario's outfit. Can you see it?
Our #2 grandson will be getting his room re-decorated for Christmas and they're using a Super Mario theme and a special request was made for Grandma to make him a twin-sized quilt. Of course, what's a Grandma to do but oblige? While I was at it, some of you might remember the pillowcase I made to go along with the quilt....
and, if all goes well, there might just be a throw pillow too.
I also just put the finishing stitches in another wee sweater for our expected grandbaby....
The colour here is definitely off (sorry, dull day...again)
but it's using the same yarn as the previous sweaters.
Pattern is the 'Room to Grow Baby Sweater' by Laura Marconi-Cox
and can be found HERE.
Over the past weekend things started ramping up in the kitchen of Resident Chef and one of the creations was a batch of 'Carrot Cake Jam' from THIS recipe (scroll down for the recipe). Oh boy....yummy stuff! I haven't done the labels yet, but here's what's going to a few people for Christmas this year...
And here is one of the lace cards I made that will be heading off to live in Australia with my cousin who just happens to own a really cute Scottie dog named Maggie...
And, finally, these three fabric postcards were created...
Very simple, keeping in mind the fact that
they should have been in the mail two weeks ago!
- There's a pretty stitch-a-long happening HERE. Check it out!
- Have a look through the gallery of THIS artist. Amazing work!!
