My new toy

I love curved cross hatching so I bought a set of rulers. They are the fine line continuous curve ruler set from Accents in Design. I love them because I can hold onto them and they don’t move. Here is a picture of my first attempt in using them.

my knitting project

I need to concentrate on just 1 art form but I love so many. Here is what I made for my Granddaughter and her American Girl Doll. This was made on my knitting machine and was so much fun to do. She loved it and so did her doll.  The buttons are lady bugs so match the red and navy blue sweater.  The pattern came from http://www.junebugsplace.com/.
