    OMG, Sewbiz! There is so much detail in that doll! How do you do it?! You are like a wonder woman.

    Wow I agree Sewbiz, the doll is so intricate. You sew, knit and crochet, what other hidden talents do you have.

    Thank you everyone... *blush*. It's just knitting. Before my quilting obsession began, I was an obsessive knitter. Started when I was about 15... I wrote patterns, had them published, taught technique classes. Knitting was a huge part of my life. Now, not so much. I'd rather sew. I'm just glad I didn't forget how to knit by the time the grandbabies came along. Now it's fun again.

    Very awesome knitting Sewbiz. I crochet but never was able to learn knitting. Your daughter will love it.

    A multi-talented grandmother you are! The doll looks complicated to me, and will be treasured, I'm sure.

    I knit and crochet. I've never tackled any thing that small knitting. I usually stick with afghans. Here's the last afghan I crocheted. Sorry the lighting was dim in the room.

    Boomers are talented in other arts as well as you can see from the pix. Knitting, crocheting...me, it was (is) cross stitch and crochet. What else do you all do?

    I use to crochet all the time but to much repetive motion for my wrists, love to scrapbook, stamp, read and garden. Never could get the hang of knitting.

    QueenB very pretty crocheted Star

    Other than sewing, I crocheted too. I can knit, but I'm like a herd of turtles, I'm so slow at it. Since I'm getting arthritis in my thumbs it's hard to crochet for me now. I made afghans, along with some dolls, tissue covers, pull over sweaters, vests and even a jacket that I loved. I wore that thing completely out. All of my grandchildren have afghans that I made them.
    When woodwork was so popular, I cut and painted that. I had parties in homes where I showed samples and took personalized orders. Them was the good ole' days!

    Pretty star afghan, QueenB. I love to crochet afghans too. I do ripples straight across. I like your pattern tho!

    Kass, you are an awesome photographer.

    Remember we had someone who did metal work, a few booms ago?

    I knit and crochet some, every couple of years now, when the mood stricks. I taught myself how to knit at 9 yrs old, then my Aunt taught me to crochet at 12. I still use the set of crochet hooks she gave me. I knitted and crochet a lot before I found quilting at 17, but I never designed patterns! Far too complicated for me! I just follow patterns.

    I taught crochet to a class of seventh graders a few years ago. That was fun!

    I use to knit a lot but it started hurting the hands too much. Every now and then I crochet pot holders, love the double sided ones and they are great to put on the table with a hot pot of something in it.
    Hubby and son went to the hockey game in Tampa the other night and a day later Bill got a cold! He just had to share it with me so that's what I've had for the last 3 days. Finished all the Boom blocks so went through all the fabric and fat quarters, refolded all of it, sorted by color. Then I decided to take down the long arm table and make it smaller so I could rearrange the sewing room. 2 days later and I'm done, should have had my head examined but glad my main machine is back in front of a window. With these old eyes it's much easier to see.

    Jaba, hope you are feeling better soon. Sure wish my sewing machine was in front of a window instead of being in the basement

    Window view only in Florida terriamn, basement in Wyoming. There is a window there but those are the narrow ones. Not a lot of light but better than nothing. I really miss my space in Wyoming. If we decide to move here permanently I’ll be searching for a bigger house for sure, or at least one with a huge room for the sewing.

    I have a nice view from my upstairs sewing room - though right now all I can see is white - since we got another few inches yesterday. Sure was a nasty storm, and half of the state is still showing "no travel advised" as it's going to take a day for them to get the roads cleared and passable again. Work was called off (I think just about all the schools were closed yesterday), but since I telework that didn't really affect me.

    We had a lot of melting and a couple of inches of rain before it turned to snow - so many are dealing with flooding along with everything else. It stayed below freezing for well past when it normally starts to warm up, and now it's going to be in the 40's so we are going to be dealing with a lot of water in a short amount of time.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.
