A few of the finishes in the last few months.
A Turtle Vest.
Flannel Geranium Dresses (and another in pink, and two more as a gift)
Milo VestLeather Shoes (multiple pairs because making them the right size is difficult. These were cute, but on the small side).
A Christmas Dress (based off the 5 & 10 Volume 1 Dress Patterns)
and a Corduroy Dress based off another variation of the pattern, made first as a test of the sizing.
A baby quilt for a college friend which turned out to just exactly the colors of her nursery.
And I finally finished hand quilting and binding the baby quilt for our little girl. She’s been posing on it for a photo each month and at least it will finally be finished for her photo at one-year old.
I finished a lap quilt made from up-cycled corduroy for our friends Sarah & Nathan who were married last weekend. It’s tied because that’s what life and time allows right now.
Sarah loves Jersey cows, so I found a fabric for the back with brown cows. Even better the binding fabric says “moo moo.”
We hope it will keep them warm and cozy in our New England winters.
I started harvesting my amaranth today. It’s an experimental crop this year. This photo dates to early August.

Spinach & Kale from the cold frame last week, and a few volunteer garlic shoots. Thank goodness for overwintered greens!
