Froggie For Caleb

We went to Hanford (about a couple hours away from where we live ) last weekend and, on the way home, it was nighttime and we could hear the frogs croaking.  After we got home, my son, Caleb, was still curious about the frogs and wondered what they were doing.  Even the next day, he was still thinking about the frogs.  So, of course, being a knitter, I had to knit him a frog and this frog pattern has been in my favorites on ravelry for a long time.  So here's the froggie for Caleb.  Just finished it today.
As you can see, Caleb loves his new froggie!  He can't wait to go back to Hanford and catch a frog like his daddy promised him they would do!

As a side note, there's a Strawberry Fields by Moda charm pack giveaway over at stash resolution.  Go enter it for a chance to win it!

Another Quilt-Along

After seeing this quilt-along, I couldn't resist joining it.  I'm doing the mini quilt size, which is 20" x 20".  These are the fabrics I'm using.  16 cool color prints and 16 warm color prints.
I had to buy some fabric for this project since my stash is so scarce, but my local quilt shop has a bucket full of fat quarters for only $1 each! 

And these are my 64 squares total, 3.5 inches, ready to be pieced together.

 So exciting! I can't wait to see it all come together!

A Sight For Sore Eyes

Enough Said.

One-Hour Project

I saw the ladies from The DIY Dish video podcast make this pin cushion on their latest episode and it is super easy.  I just had to make one.  It took me just under an hour!  It's the first pin cushion I've ever made. 

                                                                       Here's one side

Here's the other side, with pins.

Now I just need some sewing friends to make some for so I have an excuse to make more! ;)

My First Quilt-Along!

I've decided to join a quilt-along!  I've never done triangles before. So this will be a learning experience for me. I can't wait to get started!
