Here’s the rag quilted baby blanket that I made for my great-grandson. His birthday is Thursday. It is made entirely of fabrics that I had in my stash, so some are repeated and some are used only once. I tried to use colors that had about the same value.
Here’s another project that I got out of the closet on Sunday. I’ve made one set of these rag knitted place mats for a wedding gift, then started this set, but didn’t finish. It is made by knitting with thin strips of fabric instead of yarn. Colors and/or more “yarn” is added by tying on another strip. This one is all muslin, flannel, and homespuns.
I found some pictures of five point stars yesterday that made my start thinking. I’m intrigued by this idea, but I’m not sure where to go with it. The “points” are each made from a folded square. I think I’m going to try to pull them in closer together and see what happens.
I made a roasted chicken tonight for dinner with stuffing and broccoli. It really tasted good. Some days I can’t taste my food at all, but today was different. Even the grilled cheese I made for lunch tasted good. And I made two more loaves of whole wheat bread. It still doesn’t look pretty, but it sure tastes good. We are about to finish off the Texas sheet cake that I made on Sunday.
I got a dentist appointment for tomorrow morning. If I take Advil and keep my mouth shut, it doesn’t hurt too much. My tooth doesn’t hurt at all, but so much of the filling has fallen out that there is nothing left but sharp edges. Hope they will still be able to put a crown on it.
I’m trying to make a quilted scarf with denim and homespun. I’m pretty happy with the way it is turning out. I should be able to finish it tomorrow afternoon.
We got a little sprinkle of rain this evening. Hope it was just the warm-up act for the main show!
