Sweater shawl

This has been an ongoing project for a couple of years now.  Melissa gave me the yarn with pattern that I had admired and I started it but it ended up being put away.  Decided to finish it and it was blocked on Tuesday of this week!    I think this will be nice and warm, used lambs pride wool in heather grey.   The pattern is on purl soho site.

Disappearing Four Patch

This is done!  Loved it but am glad to be moving on to other projects.  Really trying hard to not create more ufo's and finish or dispatch the ones that exist.

Little Twister Wallhanging ...

Finally finished this gem.  Enjoyed every minute of it and even took a foray into some machine quilting.

This is a close shot of the quilting.  It was a lot of fun!

Lil twister

Got this nifty template to make a sort of tessellated pinwheel thing.  Made a wall hanging.

This is how it started.  5" squares to make the four-patch then bordered with 3" strips.

This is them individually cut up ...

Sewn together ...

Decided on a wall hanging.  Just have to build, quilt and bind.  Then decide where it will be hung.

Valentine runner ... A little late but done!

I intended to have this on the table for Valentine's Day but never got there.  It is done now and being enjoyed.
