My Hobo Pocketbook

When I was at one of the quilt shows I saw this Hobo Pocketbook pattern ... I fell in love with it and decided to make one for me... I made this pocketbook in November.... I was having computer issues so, I was not able to post this... Everyone stops me and tells me that love it and where I got it... When I went home for Thanksgiving my Aunt and her girls all wanted one... Now I have five more to make... I guess I will be busy for a while...Hugs :)


Jacob's Quilt

My grandson out grew his quilt I made him some time ago... So, I made this football quilt for him .... The pattern is called "Disappearing Nine Patch".... If you click you can get a better look... Jacob's colors for his team is gold and burgundy.... The green is the grass, light blue is the sky, the brown is the texture of the football and the gray is the color of his sweatshirt.... This quilt will fit his new bed that is full size... :)

I also made two pillow cases for him... He will have one at his Dad's house as well at his Mom's house... Jacob was so excited to get this quilt that he crawled under it right away.... Then he brought it up to his bedroom and put it on his bed .... A friend of mine (Lisa P.) quilted it for me because it was just to big to do on my machine... I will defiantly say Jacob was happy with his Christmas gift... Hugs :)

Christmas Eve

Jacob and his sister were decorating a Gingerbread House... Jacob is waiting his turn and he was pretending to take a bite out of it.... My Grandson was eating more icing than putting it on the house... :)

Jacob was pleased in how it came out... He had both thumbs up... He did more decorating on the tray before he was finished... :)

I have to share this picture of my son... He was cooking our dinner... While he was getting the ham together for Christmas dinner, He cut the netting off the outside of the ham and put it on his head... he said he did not want to get hair in the food... He is always doing some funny.. I just love him ... Hugs :)

WOW!!! I can not believe it has been so long since my last post... Here are a few finishes that I have done...

There is no pattern for this table topper... But, I wanted something to put on my coffee table for the month of Oct.... :)

This is a quilt (lap size) I embroidered than put together ... I had bought this quilt pattern when I was living in WI at a quilt shop called "Ye Ole Schoolhouse"... I enjoy doing the embroidery... It is a Halloween pattern... You may have to click on it to get a better look at it.... :)

I made this table runner at a retreat that I was at last month... It is called "Table Twist Too"... I made this for my grandson's mom so we can have something on the table for Thanksgiving... I am sure she will like it... :)

This is a table runner that I wanted for the summer... Since I live on Cape Cod it is a great theam... Again there was no pattern for this... I just fussy cut and put the borders on... :)
I have more things that I finished and I will post them later on... Hope you all enjoyed all these... Hugs :)
