I can't seem to find the motivation to begin a big quilt,
so the little things are keeping me busy.
My sister gave me some fingerling weight yarn that is 100% wool,
so I couldn't use it for socks.
Instead I made a little sweater for my granddaughter
who is coming soon!
Is it just me or has the button selection at Joann's really gone down hill?
I would not have chosen these buttons for a newborn sweater,
but beggars can't be choosers!
One of my traditions now, it seems,
is to make pillows from dishtowels.
I look for fun towels to use
and these go together in no time.
Last week I was visiting my daughter and son-in-law in
California to help with some last minute things before the baby comes
and took these to them.
I bought the pillow forms once I was out there and stuffed them.
The fun thing is my SIL is a C5 pilot for the Air Force.
Last year my daughter found this fabric on line with C5's on it.
It's kind of blah, but made cute pillow backings!
I also made him some masks out of the remaining fabric.
He was quite excited about those!
Hopefully soon I will have a quilt going in my hidey hole.
Until then, the little things will keep me busy.
