Wall Quilt

I made this in the colors and most of the fabrics that were leftover from making my bed quilt. The bed quilt I made several years ago. I made the blocks for this wall quilt about half the size the pattern called for. I added some round and heart buttons that my daughter made for me out of polymer clay when she was in high school.

Knit Sweater for my Husband

I knit this for my husband. It was the first sweater I have ever knit for him. It's all ribbed, so it stretches to fit his body. I did block it before putting it all together.

Child's Pants

I made these pocket pants for my grandson. I didn't quite have enough of the fabric to make the pockets (pockets go all the way to the ankles), so I trimmed one pocket with muslin and the other I made out of muslin and trimmed in the main fabric. Both pockets have white ribbing on top, as well as ribbing on the ankles. They came out cute and I can't wait to see him wear these. They are a bit too large, but kids grow like weeds, so it won't be long before they will fit him.
