Knit Nook Cozy

My son gave me his Nook, and I wanted to protect it, so I knit a cozy for it. I used this pattern for knitting a sleeve for a Kindle from Haramis Knits. It worked for my Nook. She also has an iPad version too.
I used a variegated wool yarn.

It's Raining Fabric Bowls...

I've been busy making lots of fabric bowls lately. I used up Christmas fabrics for some and batiks for others and even some ribbon yarn too. These have been selling well. Lots of photos because these are hard to photograph. It's hard to show the inside and the front and the outside all at once, so I took a few photos of each.
This one is made using ribbon yarn. 
Here is the outside and I added buttons to the side that you can see in the photo below...
...Buttons added; one on each side.
This one is made using a batik fabric.

Another bowl in a batik fabric. This fabric was leftovers from a bag I had made for my daughter.

A scrappy batik fabric bowl. 
I love to use scraps and see how they turn out.

I had a scrap of fabric that contained purple, orange, yellow and brown and tan colors, so I added some more fabrics that I had in my scraps in those colors too to create this bowl. Very autumn colors. I made a simple fabric flower for this one too.
Looking into the bowl.

I used black prints and some fabric were Christmas fabrics, but you can't even tell. I added a gingham fabric flower to this one.

Black bowl #2 without a fabric flower.
This one is all Christmas fabrics and mostly using checkered fabrics too.
I added a stacked button.
More Christmas fabric bowls using primarily red prints.

I mixed red and green Christmas fabric prints for this bowl.

The bowl on the left is primarily green Christmas fabric prints and the bowl on the right had more equal red and green prints.

Christmas bowls all stacked up.

Rotaries in Bloom Quilt Blocks

I am making quilt blocks for the block-of-the-month row-by-row mystery/swap, called a Quilter's Garden. Deana from DOD Mystery Blog is designing these blocks. September's blocks were called Good Vibrations and they were cute sewing machine blocks. October's blocks are called Rotaries in Bloom, which are Dresden Plates with a rotary cutter in the center and are just darling! You can purchase Deana's patterns as they come out each month at Craftsy or Etsy. If you join the Mystery Swap like I have, then you get the patterns for free, but you have to swap at least one block and post your finished blocks to her blog each month. If you join now, you will need to purchase the September pattern. You can go to Deana's blog to read all about it, if you want to join in.

I finished my Rotaries in Bloom Blocks right away, but wasn't sure what I was going to do for the "rotary blade". Deana suggests using a metal washer and sewing a black button on top. I was going to to do that, but then I decided to fuse silver lame' on as the blade. Since I know this quilt will be a wall quilt and not be washed, I thought that using lame' would be fine. I just need to stitch the blades in place on my blocks. I photographed these with the lame' and button just sitting on top and not stitched down yet. The block I am trading will not have the blade because I do not know who will be receiving my block yet and whether or not they will be washing their quilt, so I will let the recipient add their own blade to this block. I made 5 blocks and will swap one block.



The block above is the block I will be swapping.
