2014 in a Nutshell

Another fun trip to Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Too many snow storms in one winter!  Pretty though...

Table runner (my design) two sets of napkins and a hotpad for my son and daughter-in-love.

This is a quilt top that my mom had made many years ago. I added boarders and quilted it for her. Lovers Knot - Quilt in a Day

Love those winter blue bird visits!

I tested a pattern for Around the Bobbin It was really fun to test a pattern for a designer - had never done that before.

Made two more chemo caps to donate to Delaware Head Huggers

My son and daughter-in-love requested a wallhanging in sunflower colors.

The happy couple.

A quilt for my first grandchild.  This was a pattern I had remembered from an early 2000's McCalls Quilting magazine.  Searched through years of magazines to find it!

Nathan arrived in mid August - That's Lucky - the proud pup.

Grandmother's pride and joy.

Here he is a few months later on a quilt I put together from a kit my mom bought many, many years before.

Crocheted the family polar bear hats!

Christmas wonder.

This has to be my all time favorite knitting pattern for a cowl. I used Caron soft yarn.  I love ribbing and this unique two direction ribbing really caught my eye.

Made mug rugs and coasters for a friend.

The reverse side.

At daddy's request - viking hat and beard for the baby.
 And of course, one for daddy.
This picture has had almost 3 Million views on the internet (Imgur, etc.)  Evidently there are a lot of lovers of viking hats!

2013 in Pictures

I thought it would be nice to share a little about 2013, 2014 and 2015 before I continue on in 2016 - are a few highlights from my 2013:

Sunset on the Banana River, Cocoa Beach, Florida

My mom loves to color Easter eggs!

Made traditional "Paska" Easter bread for mom.

Started my first knitted sweater.  Great pattern - top down.

Have a blessed day!

Happy New Year - It's 2016!

I've been inspired by a new quilty friend, who has a great blog, to start posting again.  It sure has been a long haul through the past few years - but so many good things have happened - that I just have to begin again.

The picture above is our sunroom in the new house we are living in.  We are closer to the coast now.  Just a quick 15 minutes to the Delaware Bay and beaches - not to mention all the stores, doctors, hospital etc.

So...if you are still out there... I'm back!

Have a wonderful, blessed day,


Pat & Tony
