Friday Start and Finish

As some of you know,
I make Christmas Tree Skirts to give as
Wedding Gifts when appropriate.

The past two years I have had to keep my
Christmas Tree Skirt production line open.
This year I have completed one
and have this one ready to quilt.

I have to confess.....
This isn't the design I started out making,
but after all of the pieces were sewn,
this is the result.

 Connie at Freemotion at the River
that I have made before and loved it.

You sew two little pieces in the wrong direction
and the whole look changes!

Thankfully, I like the new look.
Now to get this quilted, bound and wrapped!


Today I have a knitting finish!

A few months ago Judy at Patchwork Times made this shawl 
and I knew I wanted to make one.
I am a slow knitter,
but I finished it last night!
All it needs is to be blocked.

I love the cable down the middle of this shawl
and coming from a rookie cable knitter,
it was pretty easy to knit!

Hopefully I'll get it blocked this weekend
and will be able to wear it soon.



I'm linking to Patchwork Times today.
Please visit to see what others are knitting.

Happy Friday!

It's a lovely thought to give Christmas tree skirts as wedding gifts, you chose a lovely combination of fabrics. Lovely kitting.

That shawl is GORGEOUS!!! I love the colors.

I like the newest tree skirt design too. The design looks so different and makes such a nice arrangement.

Your shawl is beautiful. I see these patterns but since I would never wear a shawl I just can't make one. I just have to settle for seeing all the beautiful ones you all make.

Ramona--the tree skirt is so pretty. Isn't it amazing when you "discover" a new pattern? Your shawl is simply gorgeous. That cable design looks so difficult but really sets it off. So pretty---you'll look great wearing it! Thank you for sharing your eye candy...at least there are no calories in those!
