It was getting dark but how often do you see a full rainbow. We certainly don't see them in Southern California where it almost never rains.

Hot with a touch of humidity and the barest of rain outside.

WIP Wednesday

Wednesday right now means quilt class. I think we learn about bindings, borders, backing, and batting. It's a "B" day!!

Kevin requested a green pig for his friend for her birthday. I am not a good pig maker so I had to come up with something quickly. She got a green alien. The blue one is a friend for my manicurist's daughter.

I am quite pleased as to how this baby sweater turned out. It's a surprise shower gift for a friend.

Panache Shawl

I love this shawl and I'm looking forward to Fall so I can wear it. It's so light and looks thin but it's surprisingly cozy. The pattern can be found here.

WIP Wednesday

The shawl is finished. It needs to be blocked and then I can cross another Christmas gift off my list.


I've wanted to learn to make quilts for a long time. Last week was my first class. My homework was to cut all my squares. Tonight we learn to sew them together.

This penguin is getting ready for winter. He's got his red scarf and he's hoping it's coming soon.

WIP Wednesday

I've always enjoyed seeing "Wordless Wednesday's" but have never contributed to it. I came across "WIP Wednesday's" this morning and loved the idea. Here's my first entry:

It's the beginning of a shawl that's going to be a Christmas present for someone who doesn't read my blog (thankfully).
