Project Linus in the New Year!

I have 3 quilts I'm sending to Project Linus.  The wedding ring panel has another one just like it. The littlest one is a Yellow Brick Road.  Only 4 more to be quilted and the stack can start growing again!

Plastic canvas and quilting

 One more Project Linus quilt!
 A Rubik's Cube tissue box holder.  I made this for my hubby for the table by his chair.  I'm loving this plastic canvas needlepoint.  This pattern came from here.
 
 
 
Here are quilt stars for the QOV I am working on for my hubby, who served in Vietnam.  The pattern is in this month's Fons and Porter For the Love of Quilting magazine.   I bought their quilt kit.

Last Project Linus Quilts for 2014







Here are the last of the Project Linus quilts for 2014.  I didn't keep a running tab of the quilts this year, so don't know the total.

Also shown in first picture is a snowman tissue box cover I made with needlepoint on plastic canvas. This one was a kit from Mary Maxim catalog.   Want to make one for every month with patterns I have found on the internet.

Thanks for looking and blessings in the New Year 2015!

Table Topper and crocheting

 This was a kit from Connecting Threads.  It is only about 16" across, so quite small.   It was fun and easy to do!  I put it under my little green ceramic Christmas tree.
I'm working on crocheting an Aran afghan for us.  It is labor-intensive, but so pretty when done.  This is about 14 rows.  It's worked the long way.

Merry Christmas  to all my friends in blogland.  Also wishing you the best in the New Year!  Here's to wonderful quilting projects!!!!

Itty Bitty Quilt Squares


These are wool applique 2.5" quilt blocks.  Very fun to do.  I plan to frame them after mounting them on black wool background.

Hoping to get started on some new projects soon.  Have been waiting for M. to somewhat catch up on quilting the Project Linus quilt pile that I have.  Didn't want it to get too over-whelming!!!

 The link to there website is " here.  They give a pillowcase plus other items to the children.

A little of this, a little of that

Been working on several different things lately.  The first picture shows my first attempt at using
my Brother PE-150 embroidery machine.  What fun it is to watch the machine "build" the design!


This is a picture of my last Snowman in a series of snowmen for each month.  I did one each  month so didn't get tired of them.  Fun project!


This is a Buggy Barn pattern that a lady from my Tuesday Sit and Sew group had started and gave to me to finish for Project Linus. Silly old cows!!!!  She did 5 of them and I did four of them---so glad there weren't any more to do!!!!  Thanks so much JoAnn!!!!  I'm sure either a little boy or girl will like this one!!!
