Knitting at tire store waiting for my snow tires. Scarf to go with girl’s mittens knitted for disadvantaged child.
A woman was intrigued and is going to join our knit and crochet for charity group in January, yay!
Hi, my name is Monty and I’m a guest blogger here on sanseilife.
One of my favorite topics is my Aunt Sandy’s quilting adventures.
Here mom didn’t think the pink squares were going to work but it was awesome. Mom took a horrible picture so you can’t really tell how awesome it was. Aunt Sandy is way more talented than Mom’s awful picture!
A very cute baby blanket don’t you think ?
I don’t know if you remember my earlier post, it was about these potholders my Aunt Sandy makes where you can place a bowl in the center and put them in the microwave. If your bowl bubbles over the potholder catches the goo.
Well one day my mom was using one of these and her bowl bubbled over and the potholder caught all the goo. When mom wasn’t looking I stole the potholder and ate it and it was delicious.
My Aunt Sandy made mom these replacement potholders, aren’t they lovely? I can hardly wait to steal another one I’m sure it’ll be delicious.
What else is my Auntie up to? Quilting!!
Her new plan is using variegated thread, she loves the outcome. I do too. Even though I’m a dog and color blind I can tell this is awesome!here is a square before and after quilting. And tada, all put together.
I recently was at Sandy’s house for ham sandwiches on home made bread, jalapeno deviled eggs made by her husband, beer and best of all, quilt viewing.
Sandy has tubs and tubs and boxes and boxes of quilting material.
Some she rescued from garage sales or estate sales.
Some she found too awesomely interesting to pass by. (Reading in between the lines, she just bought it because….)
She sometimes obtains fabric with a specific project in mind, but sometimes not. Sandy has a whole bin of purple fabric patterns. Yay Sandy!
A too cute baby quilt.
She has actually made my dogs, her dog nephews, each a doggie quilt and here is an example of a pet quilt. (I got a matching quilt to one of the doggie quilts but I suspect that the doggie quilts were the most fun as they got theirs first!)
Here is a beautiful quilt, how did she figure out the color scheme?
A sampler quilt.
And one of my favorites, a quilt made from left overs from other quilts!
