Comforters in progress

I have been using up my scraps to make comforters.  I've not bought any new material--just trying to diminish my stash. Last year I made the blue comforter for Rosie and Caroline, my 6 year old granddaughters.  It seems that Rosie has taken it over, and Caroline wanted a comforter of her own.  Her favorite color is blue, so I wanted to make this comforter blue-ish.  I have put pictures printed on fabric sheets of the twins and their cousins on the comforters. As you can see from the pile of fabrics I am working with, I am the original messy Bessie.   I will back the new one with some blue fabric that I have, and tie it with blue yarn.

Christmas stockings

I've made Christmas stockings for all my grandchildren.  I already posted the picture of the newest one, made for Sean, now 4 months old.  The one made for Ellie, Sean's sister, features their two dogs.  Murphy, the black one, only has one eye.  Maggie, the fawn pug, has a tongue that would rival Gene Simmonds.  The other two stocking were made for Caroline and Rosie.  Caroline's has Snoopy on top of his doghouse, and Rosie's has the Grinch peering out from behind a Christmas tree. The stockings will be hung on the mantle, all ready for Santa to fill them. for Christmas.

Christmas hangings

 I went to Overland Park to help Rosie and Caroline make Christmas wall hangings (among other things).  They made houses and I sewed them on some starry night fabric.  You can see the houses and the girls holding them. We also made trees.  If you look closely you can see the Caroline's is a KU tree.  She's quite enamored with KU.  She even cut a KU for the tree star.

Christmas stocking and another goodie

I made a Christmas stocking for my grandson, Sean.  His dad requested putting ugly dolls with party hats on the stocking, so that explains the decoration.

the second picture is a small quilt I have made for my niece who is getting married.  Both Debbie and the groom have a great interest in Native American culture.
