well I have been having fun knitting golf club covers. Here is a picture of the red covers I made for the Holidays. They are a big hit at the golf courses and so soft and furry. They are made of fun fur and acrylic so they wash like a dream and get more furry the older they get. I have had several customers and they sell for $18.00 each plus shipping and tax. E-Mail me if you are interested in them and let me know what color you want. I made bright blue ones with varigated yarn on the bottom, red ones with white on the bottom, hot pink with black on the bottom, and lime green with white on the bottom or sock part.

Here are some pictures of my latest QOV, finished today. I chose the contemporary Baptist Fan because the quilting will not detract from the quilt. Blind veterans love to feel the waves of the Baptist Fan and it always looks on the patriotic quilts. The picture of the pink quilt on the top of my page is of a Memorial Quilt for a female veteran. I loved doing it and pray it gave comfort to her family.

There are some people who believe the war is over, however that is not true. The war in Afghanistan is escalating and this link will get you first hand information from an ICU nurse there. As an old ICU nurse, Critical Care Educator, and Nursing Leader I did find this very interesting and not at all bad for those who are squeamish. Enjoy

I spent most of today collecting all the items I had for the spiral surf quilt. I found most of it and now am reading the book “Simply amazing Spiral Quilts”, by RaNae Merrill. I am trying to figure out how I made the blocks in 2010 and as soon as I do, I can finish my quilt. this is from my stash and I am not sure how big I can make it. I will post my adventure with this quilt as I go. If you have any suggestions let me know because I really want to finish this one this year. Have a great weekend and let me know what you are working on.

I have several antique machines that I love to sew on. Some of them are treadles and others are handcranks. The handcranks are wonderful for my Granddaughter to use and she has been using them since she was 3 years old.
I have a goal of making a quilt on each of my machines that represent the year they were made and quilting the final designs on them using the same antique machine. I have seen videos of a lady quilting on her treadle. It totally fascinates me and I have got to try it sometime. You have to pedal fast and move the quilt as you go. I can see beautiful victorian feathers done this way but have not been successful in doing it.
Let me know if you use these machines in you quilting. It is so fun to exchange blocks with others who have antique machines. I have done this several times and would love to do it again.
Have a great week and God Bless you.
