Merry Christmas from a new reindeer!

Behold my first needlepointed FO! I'm in love with it (even though it's not perfect). It was quick and required very little thinking. I already bought a larger canvas for a pillow. Too bad my local needlepoint shop is closing as of December 31st. So sad.

Here's a Christmas picture of me and Baby Starfish (no longer a baby...) for good measure!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Growing up....

There is evidence of my big kid growing up all the time but this one hit me where it hurts! He needed a new hat and I said I would knit him one. He has always worn adorable (if I do say so myself) hats - dinosaur heads, long stocking hats with even longer tassels on the ear flaps, etc. This time we went through Ravelry and he picked a straight-up ribbed beanie with one little conservative stripe.

No animal heads or crazy designs. He said he's "getting older" and wants something "more plain". Second grade. Is this when it starts? *sniff, sniff*

On a completely different note, I'm working on another baby quilt for a new mama. Her nursery is gray and green - a combo I have worked with before. Here's what I have so far:

I think this is going to be 12 blocks with no sashing but I'm not sure yet. Maybe a border?

2012 Year in Review

Here is a look at most of my projects from this year. It's kind of fun to see them all in one place! I'm looking ahead to several projects already started and plan to really finish up some things that are sitting in the UFO pile. A few may just be abandoned and that's okay, too. I hope to finish up even the things I don't love. My quilt guild donates to a local charity and that's always a good cause.

My plan for 2013 is to finish or abandon:

1. Constellation quilt
2. Children at Play quilt
3. Swoon quilt
4. Kid Starfish's hat (almost finished)
5. Downton Abbey mystery KAL
6. Terrain baby quilt
7. Gray and Green crosses (almost finished)
8. Rainbow Wheel quilt
9. Hand applique needlecase
10. Woodlands Sampler cross-stitch

Whew! I'm tired just looking at that list! What about everyone else? What's your crafty plan for 2013?
