This is how Knitters do it

The Musical One bought a condo. This is her first house. The knitting ladies all got together to make a throw for her living room.  It still needs a good steam - but I ran out of time.  Each stripe in the throw was knit by someone different.  Just about everyone was from Washington but there were a few participants from the East Coast - you know because her sister lives over there and another friend who loves her and wanted to help.

It looks good with her furniture and paint and should keep her warm this winter when she turns the heat down.

Precious Little

Vogue 8788 from Vogue Patterns Website
There has been precious little sewing going on around gMarie that hasn't been crafty lately.  However, if you want to see how Nancy turned my Charming blocks into a stunning quilt - go look!  This is a project that is near and dear to my heart and I do hope that these quilts bring a small amount of comfort and some small knowledge that someone appreciates what those in the service are giving. 

Anyway - I got the new issue of Vogue Patterns and I'm really wanting to make Vogue 8788.  I see it in one of the Lisette Fabrics.  It's not a gathered skirt, so I think it will work and it resembles the super popular 'walk away dress'.

I have a few more 'crafty projects' hanging over my head that have a quick turn around and then it's garment sewing for me.  My closet needs some new blood as spring approaches.

Thankful Dogs

Combining a bit of Thankful Thursday with Dogs on Thursday -
I thought I'd let the dogs tell you what they are thankful for.

I'm thankful that Dad brings bones home and gives them to us! - Lucy
and for long walks on weekends.

I'm thankful that Mom let's me run in the yard when it's sunny - Abby

I'm thankful for the blueberries Mom adds to our kibble - they are yummy!
and for her just laughing when I climb on the furniture - I'm not suppose to - Beau

It's Really Too Bad

 that I've sworn off buying Aerosoles because of horrible service.  Because I just got a new catelog in the mail and there are some fabulous shoes!  I might break that. 

Black Cherry - love the red.

 Plush or Minus - love the purple.  and the stripe on the heel.

Teashop - tons of great colors, but the pink if my favorite.

Ticker Tape - I adore these and would want the pink.  Must add more pink to my wardrobe.

Winners Circle - this is a very interesting shoe and I can't decide if I love it or not. 

Oh - and right now through the end of April?  20% off any order and free shipping when you spend $75 - which isn't hard.  They have a ton of adorable ballet flats as well as fabulous wedges.
