Hearts and Socks

I've been able to get back into sewing a bit
and worked on a small project this week.
No pulling and pushing fabric around,
so my shoulder stayed quiet.

Thank you for all of your suggestions on chairs.
I'll be out shopping for a new one soon!

Can I just say...
I love making these hearts.
I made a couple a while ago as a challenge
and knew I would be making more at some point.

These are my Patriotic Hearts.

As I mentioned in prior posts,
I make my siblings and mom a Patriotic quilt
each time we have a family reunion.
 This will be the quilt given to them this summer.

I'll add a small border of white fabric,
then quilt and bind them.
(Wouldn't a bunch of these make a great quilt!?!?)

Four almost done,
two more to go.
My Accuquilt Go! cutter made quick work of cutting
the pieces for these little quilts.

Now onto knitting!

I finished the first sock of this pair for my daughter.
These will be for her tiny size 2 foot.

The yarn I am using is
With these socks, I am knitting the red and black yarn together
for thicker, warmer socks.
This yarn is soooo soft!
The Simply Sock Yarn Company provides great customer service
and has a nice selection of sock yarns.

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting today!

Happy Friday!

Those cute little socks are adorable. They do look tiny. I have bought some yarn from SSYC too as a mystery bag, and I was not disappointed with the 3 skeins they chose to send. The price was right, so I was game to take a chance., Helps build up the stash, lol. I really like your patriotic hearts too. What size squares did you start with?

I like these heart even better than the last. I need to make a VA quilt and your red, white, and blue hearts have inspired me.
