Tops and Bottoms

 Millie finished her tumbling blocks Dr Suess quilt top and I finished the quilting today-most of the fabrics are flannel and the back , too, so it will be a very comfy quilt!  (Yes, Nyki looks like she is inspecting the seams, doesn't she?!)
The raspberry socks are done-they look purple until I place them next to the other bfl socks I made and they the mulberry undertones are more pronounced.--The socks are so silky and cushiony-a very nice knit!

  1. I saw Dr Seuss fabric at the Big Box Store yesterday but I left it there! (Way too many things happening in my sewing world right now!)

    Lovely socks - they definitely look purple on my monitor.

  2. So, do you have a favorite sock pattern that you se mostly, or do you experiment around with different heels and toes?

Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

The Solstice Bloom!

 During the day I finished piecing some more flannel squares.  I was bored with the straight setting of the squares so put them on point!...
