Goodbye 2016! Happy 2017!

Goodbye 2016! Happy 2017!

As I look back at my posts for this year, it appears that I haven’t been very active!  Well, it’s quite the opposite!  I’ve been too busy to post what I’ve been up to!  One of the reasons would be this little sweetheart and I’m not complaining!  Photo credit goes to our amazing daughter, Stephanie Marie Photography!And wedding! Photo credit Lauren Konrad PhotographyAnd Family!We now have four generations living within a few miles of each other!  We are busy and blessed!

I did manage to stitch 51 customer quilts, 11 charity quilts and 10 personal quilts on my longarm this year.

Here’s a photo dump of some of my finished projects – quilting, sewing, knitting and crocheting!   Some of my favorites this year are the phone/tablet holders.  I’ve lost track of how many I made!  I made a few new and revised dish mats but no pics for those!  Sometimes I forget to take pictures!  Cloth books for babies were another favorite!  I couldn’t stop making them!  And then there is crocheting.  I’ve made several infinity scarves with Scarfie yarn which makes an ombre pattern when done!  I can’t stop buying the yarn!!Be Positive Wall Hanging for JaimeBe Positive Mini Quilt for Schneiter BabyBe Positive Mini quilt for Czech Schneiter baby Phone holder More Phone holders Ken's drumming phone holder Cloth books and dolly quilt for Skylar

Now, on to next year! If you’re curious about any of the projects I made this year, comment on my Facebook page and I’ll send you a link to the free pattern, if available.  Many of them are on my Pinterest page, too.   And if you need another place to connect, find me on Instagram!

That’s all for now, see you next year!

I found another beanie hat pattern on Ravelry!  I’m using 16″ circular needles for the body and will switch to double points to make the crown.  I’ll stop making beanies when I run out of yarn or spring gets here!

Check out Judy at Patchwork Times for other On the Needles projects!

Back to sewing quilts and LAQ!

Thanks for looking!  🙂 Linda

When I’m not sewing, I’m either knitting or reading (notice I didn’t say cleaning or cooking!).  Here’s the latest finish, another wool beanie.  I’ve made this pattern twice so I had two partial skeins left and just like quilting, I used the remnants to make this one!  Hopefully, the lucky Luther College student I’m sending it to will like this one, too.

I’m off to sew my quilting buddy today to work on my WIP’s!

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend.  🙂 Linda



Holiday Knitting

Sometimes, I get into the knitting mood when I find something easy and fun to make.  The seed stitch knitted cowl uses one skein and you can knit it in one night!  Here’s the link to the free pattern.  I have made 2 dozen, maybe more of these wonders!  And now, my daughter has started making them, too.  She made the cream colored one.

The striped cowl is easy, too!  Here’s the link for the free pattern.

The knitted beanie is a little more work using dpn’s but still easy and very cozy if you make it with wool yarn!  The pattern is free on Ravelry, here’s the link for that.

I’m linking up with A Stitch In Time for a December finish.  I didn’t finish a quilt this month but at least I finished something!
