Finished Projects


 

Well this must be the time of year for me to finish all my unfinished projects! LOL.. first I finished my basket weave afghan and posted about that last week. On Sunday afternoon I finally pulled out my sewing machine and finished two more projects. 

 

The first was a blue jean quilt that I started last year for my grandson, Caden. I got so busy with other things that I was not able to finish it. Yesterday I finished it!  It was supposed to be last years Christmas present (I sent something else instead).. now it will be this years.. hope my daughter Carolyn is not reading this post! LOL..  Here is a picture of it:

For the denim squares I used a denim jumper that was too big for me to wear. And the red fabric is flannel that I purchased off eBay. This quilt is very soft and comfy feeling.

 

 

The second project was an apron. I bought a fun and unique apron pattern on line called The Four Corners Apron from this company:   http://www.vanillahousedesigns.com/p132-four-corners-apron/   It used 2 coordinating pieces of fabric. It was VERY easy to make and now Leanne wants to get fabric to make another one. I may consider making a few of these for Christmas gifts this year. It was hard to take a picture of it but I laid it out and took one pic and then Emily volunteered to model it so you can see what it looks like on (excuse the mess next to her.. it was her book and papers from studying for her upcoming English literature CLEP test today).

Now that I have these unfinished projects done it is time to think about more projects for this years Christmas gift list.

  6. Hi Crystal,

    I'm ready to try my hand at making bread. I have a question for you-can I use my dough cycle on my new bread machine for your ww bread recipe? The one for 2 loaves? I've heard that baking bread in the oven tastes better than in a machine, but I'm not ready to try it by hand yet.

    If I can do this, are there any pointers I should know about?

    Thanks for your help-I can't wait to get started. :)

  9. Love both the quilt and the apron! I saw that apron pattern a couple of days ago and wondered how it would work up. I was wondering about your quilt - is it machine quilted? And if so, what size is it? I machine quilt my crib quilts, but that one looks bigger and I have trouble with those. You've inspired me to get busy on Christmas now!!
