MORE FINISHES BY MISTI

When recently talking to Misti (co-worker) I learned that her quilt was finished.  Naturally I had to see it and take a picture to show you.  Isn't it lovely!  Misti said it is a Christmas gift and I'm not telling who she is giving it to.

This closeup shows you the adorable kitten fabrics she used in the quilt.  As I recall, she said the quilt came as a kit.

But the kit did not include this beautiful Moda fabric that Misti used on the back of her quilt.  She actually has two quilts in one!

Misti also showed me this table topper, table runner, and mug rug that she recently completed.

This is a closeup of one of the blocks.  Misti said that the Primitive Gardens pattern was for a quilt.  However, during a recent move, the pattern was misplaced and Misti decided to make the blocks that she had finished into these other items instead.  Pretty clever, don't you think?

Thanks Misti for sharing your lovely work with us.

NOTICE:  If you are looking for the Witch's Feet pattern on the sidebar, please shoot me an email and I will send it to you.

IT'S PERSONAL


Today I want to show you the PJs I made for my great grandson.  I didn't have a pattern, so I took his clothes and traced a pattern.  Worked well on the shorts, but I had a little trouble with the top.  The point is, he picked out the fabric himself and told me what to make with each piece.  I love it when that happens.  Isn't he one handsome dude!

I wanted to show you this too.  It has been a wonderful growing season here in Michigan.  This Sweet Autumn Myrtle  Clematis is loaded with blooms.  I love how it's sweet fragrance drifts through my back yard.  I read recently that Autumn shows us that there is beauty in letting go.
