The last couple of projects I have been finishing up have been all about warmth...
K hasn't taken off her rainbow socks since they came off the needles. She has requested that I knit her a rainbow poncho to wear them with and that I hurry up on C's matching rainbow socks. Oh to have the free time to finish all she desires!
Hmmmm.. where did C go?
Finished up our folksy flannel throw. It is so cozy and warm! I used organic cotton batting on the inside and found a flannel sheet to cut up and use as the backing.
I had to use some colorful embroidery floss for my ties.
Wrinkled quilt picture, no chance to iron. I had to wrestle it away from my girls who have been living under it.
I have had the chance to use it a couple of times so far, one of those times was to keep me warm while practicing my latest obsession... which I will post more about next week.
I had a lot of left over fabric of just one of the prints from the quilt (I had to order a half yard of one from another store because AMH was out of stock so I decided to make some quilted coasters with it.
I used one of the girls' tea cup saucers and traced it eight times on the fabric and four times on the batting to make four two-sided coasters. Fast, simple and easy.
Yes, they are not the prettiest things in the world, it's been so long since I've sewn curves and I really need more practice but they are practical. Flaws and all - we have been enjoying using them.
So here's to the warmth and coziness of flannel and wool on those cold winter days!
I apologize for my absence on Monday, I am still playing catch up on a lot of computer work.
