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

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.

My name is Yvonne. I have mostly been a homemaker for the last 25 years. With a husband and 5 kids (4 boys and 1 girl) my time has been a lot about food. 3 of the kids has moved out, the 2 youngest (18 and 20) still lives at home. We are swedish but have also lived in Brazil and USA. Almost every morning, year around, I go for a walk in the great outdoors, planning my day.
