These hats are all made from leftover yarn from previous projects. Most likely they will be given that our local children's hospital;s Knitting for Noggins program. The gray one on the top to the left was knitted using the pattern Regular Guy Beanie by Chuck Wright. The yarn worsted Red Heart I think. The top right one was knit using the Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted Multi yarn and pattern Palindrome Hat by Kristin Bellehumeur. The two bottom hats were knit using multiple different yarns and the pattern Scrap-happy Celebration Hat by Cosette Cornelius-Bates.

I've finished knitting the seascape stole. It took me about six weeks. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. The pattern is Seascape Stole by Kieran Foley. The yarn is Misty Mountain Farm Alpaca Lace. It feels very soft and delicate. It measures 16 in X 66 in.

I made this medallion quilt for someone I know who has metastatic lung cancer. The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. It measures 47 in X 64 in.
The inner square was a pre-marked piece. The fabric adjacent to it is a brown batik.
The next round was a strip of green fabric with yellow squares at the corners. Then I added strips of fabric given to me by a friend who spent many years as a missionary.. I think this fabric was from Australia or New Zealand as it has kangaroos, lizards, etc and in the original fabric had surrounded a scene of Aborigines people (I think). An additional strip of the brown batik was added.
The back is this lovely purple, blue, and brown fabric which was given to me by the same friend.

I pieced the quilt top for this quilt using dresses saved by my niece's mom/my kid sister from when my niece was a baby/toddler. I decided the Irish chain pattern would allow the fabrics to be shown off. The quilt is machine pieced by me and hand quilted by my sister. The quilt measures 94.5 in square.
This photo shows the fabrics a little clearer.
And this one just a bit of the nice quilting my sister (Madison’s mother) did.
The quilt label was made using a piece of the collar from one of the dresses.

I started this project so that I'd have something to work on during the plane trip to Arizona for my sister's wedding last month. In truth, I did very little knitting while gone from home. I am settling back into work on it. It's a lovely project which will take a while. The pattern is Seascape Stole by Kieran Foley. The yarn is Misty Mountain Farm Alpaca Lace.
