I am starting a quilt, big blocks so I only have to make twelve total, but there are a lot of half square triangles and flying geese units.  It is in spring colors, but with my rate of getting sewing done, it will be fall before I get it finished.

I still have a cornucopia cross stitch in progress, as well as a Christmas bell pull.  Seems I am better at starting hand work projects than finishing them, LOL!

What are you planning to do, or have in progress?

I'm working on a mint colored crochet summer lace skirt that you can wear over leggings, or at the beach over your bathing suit.

I will be putting in my etsy shop as soon as it's done. My favorite past time is crocheting.  I can crochet anything. Been crocheting for over

40 years. If you would like to see some of my work just check www.etsy/shop/mzbellz

I am learning to knit (thanks to YouTube) and I am making the ruffle scarves. I also picked up some yarn to make dishcloths but haven't started them yet.

I have just finished a quilt top with International harvester fabric. Getting ready o back it and start quilting. This is my first quilting project using full sized quilting frames. Any helpful hints?

Lastly, I'm making a costume for my neighbor - the Emerald City guard from the Wizard of Oz. Gotta figure that hat out!

I'm working on a Prarie Star baby blanket in crochet for my new godson, which is my main project. I've also got a shawl in progress and a pair of shark earrings that I just worked up the pattern for.

Getting out my stamping stuff this weekend to get started on Easter cards.  There is so much inspiration out there, sometimes it is hard to decide on a design.

I've been making alot of baby dresses in different colors. I've made about 7 or 8 so far. I've gotten the pattern from Maggies Crochet.

I don't know what it is about the pattern itself that makes me feel as though I have to continually make it, but I love crocheting it.

I'm on Etsy under mzbellz if anyone would care to check out my store.

Thanks,  Mary Alice

I'm working on a blanket that will become a Christmas gift for my DDO's "in-laws".  I'm also trying to get done my
Pay It Forwards from the beginning of the year on Facebook.  (for those who don't play,  at the beginning of the last 2 years
or so, some people have offered to handmake something and send it to the first 5 people who post )  I've got 2 done and
mailed.  This week I'm going to make a third, then I want to make 3 sizes of crocheted crowns, mama, child and infant.  I have
no idea what the 5th will be.

Working on two charity quilts right now.  I finished up a bed quilt for summer, but noticed a section was quilted badly (thread nest on the back) so I picked that out and need to requilt it.  Will be posting the pics on my Pinterest page this weekend.

Hi All,

I'm making jewelry and trying to create enough stock to have a booth at a sale.  I've named my store on Facebook "Midwestern Musings Jewelry and Crafts"  that was my Etsy name way back when I had an Etsy store.

I'm also crocheting potholders and making soy candles whenever I get a chance.

Finished a set of three table toppers, each with the same design but different colors of quilting thread and different binding colors. 

See the three posts on the home page at From My Carolina Home - scroll past the book reviews on the food anthologies.

I'll see if I can find the website that has the pattern.  They have a much better picture than i could come up with.  I'm at the library now so I don't have access.
