For the first bit of randomness, I want to thank those of you who left very informative comments on my last post about my knitting dilemma. I took a fellow knitter's advice and then looked at a few videos and voila
behold my very poor photo of a knitted pillow. It looks tiny in this photo but it is almost 13 inches square. I sewed some deep red ultra-suede to the back which has a lapped opening to put the pillow form in. It is so soft and cuddly, I think I may eventually make a gargantuan pillow like this.....
We are heading up to Montana at Christmas to see family so I just got started last night with some presents to give while we are there. I found this really fabulous Laura Ashley 100% cotton fabric and had to make some tea towels out of it.
I sewed some cotton tape on the back of one corner to allow for hanging
I really like how these turned out and may be listing some of them in my etsy shop. The red is so Christmas-y and I love the pattern.
In other news, my secret Santa blanket from this post was well received, and appreciated!
