    I knit wash cloths out of cotton yarn. All my friends love them, I don't make them fancy or anything. I buy the yarn on sale at Michael's and can get the wildest colors. So soft and are great to use.

    how cute! Love the different colors too. I deal with days / weeks when I just can't seem to get to my sewing room (fibro or orthopedic issues) so I'm learning to hand embroider. I have a machine embroidery unit but thought this would be a good alternative when I can't sit up straight in my sewing room.

    I am on week five with my broken finger in the splint. I have been busy going through magazines, blogging, trying to organize (but I think I have more of a mess). I did my first gentle sweeping today; one hand vacuum cleaning today. Dishes are washed. I have been to several LQS. Watched YouTubes. Walk two miles a day. I type for a living so I have been using six fingers and one thumb. Counting the days until I can use two hands again. And mainly trying to not rebreak this finger. Nothing creative though. I am so looking forward to quilting.

    You are a blessing to newborns, thier little heads seem to be quite cold, when I can't quilt, I do cut-work embrodiery, it is portable and it goes fast
    happy to have enough stash fabric at all time

    Thanks for the kind words. What is cut-work embroidery?

    M.D. Anderson visits with DH got me knitting. Saw another lady making dishcloths and thought that was perfect to keep me busy. Staying in small apt. Waiting to get in a house started me on jewelry. You can get into a lot of trouble when you can not quilt!

    I love the hats. About how long does it take to make one? I love all the color choices.

    I can make one in about an hour but I have been crocheting for about 65 years and people tell me that I crochet very fast. I would guess the average person could make one in about an hour and a half. Sent you a PM.

    Those hats are so cute. I knit hats, but mine are adult hats for me and my family. Here's a sample.

    If you could pm the pattern, that would be awesome! Mom loves to crochet, has been making throws for the nursing Home as well as baby blankets for project Linus, all crochet...but I bet she would love the skull cap idea!

    When I travel with DH, I have to stay busy so I have started to take my rug hooking projects. I have tried knitting and crocheting but it has not caught on...I have made several place mats and a small bedroom rug. The reason I have to have something to do is that otherwise I am telling my DH how to drive and or when to change lanes etc.... He does not like that....

    This is so funny....my DH has had to quit driving for health reasons, but he hasn't learned to quit making the decisions on when to change lanes, slow down, etc., while I am behind the wheel. I wish he would start doing rug hooking or something. LOL!
