Happy Easter Giveaway!

Wishing all of you a very happy, blessed Easter.  I love going to the Easter morning mass at our church, love the music and seeing all the little children dressed up in their adorable outfits.  I miss those days!

I was lucky enough to receive two copies of The Giving Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini and some pins to share with you.  If you are interested in receiving a copy, just leave a comment.  I'll choose two winners in the next day or two and send them along.  I reviewed this book awhile ago, you can read about it here.  I enjoyed this story!  The Giving Quilt comes out in paperback on Tuesday.

On The Needles Friday

It's been a while since I posted for On the Needles Friday.  I've been working on this hat for awhile, it's a Ravelry pattern called the Temperance Hat.  The pattern is pretty easy, I just knit slowly!  I'd hoped to have it done to wear this winter, but that didn't happen, so now I'm planning for it to be done by the end of baseball season...some of those late season games get cold here!  What's on YOUR needles today?  Show us at Patchwork Times!

My Little Helper

Holly decided to give me a little help quilting today. This quilt is made from blocks that I exchanged in the Jo Morton Yahoo group a few years ago. I made the top and basted it on the machine for hand quilting. Well, you can see how far I got with that! So it's back on the machine and on its way to being finished at last. Sometimes you just want/need to get things done...

Time to stitch down the binding, I just love the polka dot flannel on the back!

To another finish! Should have this one quilted today, then the binding and I'll be done!

This was on my desk when I got to work this morning. Day made!

It seems I've caught the hexies bug too. But mine are just a bit different than the rest I've seen on other blogs, seeing as they're crochet, not quilting! I used the tutorial from the Lavender and Wild Rose blog but did the first two rounds from the same color so the blocks would sort of look like flowers. This is the start of a baby afghan for a little girl who will be arriving in late May!
