Fall of 2018 had good and bad! I went on a cruise in October with my sister Helen and had a great time. It was a cruise to New England and Canada. We had stops in Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor, Halifax and we were supposed to stop at St John Bay of Fundy but the weather was too stormy. Pics of the ship and a few stops.

The kids took turns taking care of Rob while I was gone and things went smoothly. I’m sad to say my little Red Bone became ill and crossed the rainbow bridge.

About a week before Thanksgiving I fell and broke my left arm! Great finish for the year! Fortunately it wasn’t put in a cast and it has improved slowly but pretty much put an end to plans for crafting for Christmas. We finished the year with a quiet New Year at home. Here are some of the things I created in 2018.

Hi all, Hoping everyone is having a great weekend! Mines pretty good so far. I managed to get a few things done yesterday. The sewing room got cleaned, I hemmed 2 pair of pants for Samantha and I sewed 2 QAYG blocks.

I was going to finish the edges of the pants with the serger but it was uncooperative and the thread kept breaking so I ended up just using an overcast stitch on the sewing machine and they turned out fine.

I’ve been using the Kenmore 1030 for the QAYG blocks and went to wind a bobbin and the clutch was so tight I couldn’t loosen it. I called son Nicholas and he came over and loosened it.

Current WIPS

QAYG I following a YouTube video from the Quilt as you go made Modern book. I have 13 blocks completed. I’m going to put joining strips between the blocks

Next up is my Cruise Shawl that I am knitting with a knook. This is a knook https://www.amazon.com/Knook-Expanded-Beginner-Leisure-Arts/dp/1464704066/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1536504731&sr=8-2&keywords=

I’m using this pattern Terribly Simple the yarn is Yarn Bee Dee-Lisa Boutique in the colorway Love & Licorice.

I’m writing a loom knit sock pattern and this is it with completed toe and 25 rounds on the foot. The yarn is Kroy Socks in the color Marl Rose Brown.

Last I started a Nativity set a few years ago and just started working on Mary. This is the Ravelry project page for the completed ones Christmas Nativity

I need to add Mary’s hair and finish the head scarf.

I also have a loom knit hat in progress that I didn’t take a picture of.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Wow! It has been 5 years since I’ve posted here. A lot of changes have happened in my life over the years. The major changes are My husband Rob was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about a year and a half ago and that brought big changes. He is no longer able to work. I now stay home and care for him. We sold our home and moved into a retirement community. Grandchildren have increased by two, our youngest now has two sons and we care for them 3 days a week.

I still loom knit, crochet and sew. I’ve also been quilting I made this quilt for my sister Helen

I sent it out to be quilted but I did all the piecing and hand stitched the binding.

This one for my granddaughter Amber

I did diagonal lines of walking foot quilting on it.

This one for grandson Tanner

I just tied Tanners instead of quilting it.

and this one for grandson Adrik

I also tied Adrik’s. The dinosaurs are all machine embroidered blocks.

I’ve also learned how to do pin loom weaving and Knooking.

Hi all, I got some unexpected time at home this afternoon. Did I spend my time doing dishes, laundry or cleaning? Of course not!!! I spent the time with a knitting loom, an old movie and Weezer cuddled in the chair with me. The project I worked on is the KaylinnClutch
