Jump On In!

Cups and saucers,
Plates and dishes,
Your old man wears dirty britches!

Remember those funny jump rope rhymes from childhood? Now they are captured in a quilt square!

Coy Creamer

I love her expression! Another hand-embroidered square of the redwork quilt.

Happy Snacks

I hand embroidered all these squares for the redwork quilt using patterns I got from a company called Aunt Effie's Heirlooms. I used two different sets: KP Krew and Full Service. According to the info that came with the pattern, the original pattern came from Modern Priscilla patterns in the early 1920s.

Outside My Window

Here's a fun wallhanging I made for a friend. It's a faux window with a view!

Shelby's Sweater

Last spring, I knitted this sweater for my grand-niece. Unfortunately, the little budding photographer dropped my sister's camera, so the full-length view is looks like a TV with poor reception...

...but you can see how cute it is! And look at her examining it!
