2015 - Busy Year, Saying Goodbye and a New Beginning

This is the January block of Natures Scenery Block of the Month that I chose to start.
I really enjoyed making this hat. I love cables - I need to make another one in a solid yarn so that the cables will stand out though!  Gingerbread Hat
This hat is both crochet and knit.  I donated it to Delaware Head Huggers to be used by a cancer patient. Its called the Dana Cable Brim Slouchy Hat
Knitted my first baby sweater for my grandson :) 
It fits!!!
His mama wanted a giraffe hat for him - too cute.

A commission project - placemats with matching napkins and table runner - for a bed and breakfast.

Sewed 3 tote bags as belated Christmas gifts.
Tested this tote bag pattern for Around the Bobbin

Celebrated Grandbaby's 1st Birthday!

Wallhanging quilt for grandbaby's room - a utilitarian piece to cover up a small panel on the wall and to keep the cold breeze out.

The back of wallhanging. Practiced my wavy quilting with a walking foot.
Since we were planning to put our house up for sale in the fall, I planted some colorful plants in the side yard.
And they grew, and grew and grew!

And they grew to over 3 feet tall!  
Four generations!!

I love the sunlight coming through my windows.

Another visit to Cape May, New Jersey - Sunset Cove - that's the lighthouse guiding the way.

Lewes, Delaware in the springtime.  They are known for their tulips.

Hit a big milestone on this earth in 2015!

This is a cotton yarn design - can be used as a washcloth or doily.  Many mistakes but I learn a few things about double point knitting needles. The quilt behind it was made back in the 90's when I was madly in love with dusty pink and colonial blue.

This is the Painted Desert shawl pattern using Painted Desert yarn.

Cotton yarn shopping bag
House is ready to be shown!
The monster coleus in the window!

One last look around before we leave this pretty place. I was so happy that the plants dressed up the outdoor space for perspective buyers and that they lasted clear into fall.

Our new view from our new living space a little closer to the ocean. We were blessed with a very quick sale of our home - the first couple in the door bought it! They are a very sweet couple and they are enjoying the birds and solitude.

Well - I'm all caught up and can continue on with my blog!  Phew!  Hope you enjoyed the whirlwind visit through the last few years with me.
