Lately I've been obsessed with knitting. As a result knitting needles have been found from my "old stash" and accumulated and acquired recently. To that end I had put the short and small stuff in my old "notions box" and the long needles in an old freezer wrap box. Obviously I needed a knitting/crochet needle case. This is what I came up with - I still need a closure (thinking ribbon and beads like I do with my folios). I'm gonna work with it for a while, then make a gift or two once I tweak what I did. The fabric is some upholsery samples I was given - I think it might be a little heavy for all the layers - may not use it for the pockets in future ones. The possibilities are endless - that's for sure!

Elden's Quilt

Elden wanted a SpongeBob Squarepants quilt for xmas. I couldn't find focus fabric locally so I ordered some blocks on Ebay. They were ok, but not fussy cut like I would have done. He didn't seem to mind though. I forgot to take a pic of the back. it's Navy flannel, with cars and street signs - very cool and he has two sides for variety.

Melissa and Dave's Quilt

This was xmas gift for Melissa and Dave. They have a quilt that I made for them years ago which is in dire need of repair so this is a replacement. I used some of almost all the batiks I have in my stash for the four patches, then alternated them with blending blocks. They have a combination of cream and robin's egg blue walls - so it goes quite well.
