Woodland Bloom Quilt

Finally made this quilt out of the Woodland Bloom line of fabric by Lila Tueller:
A shot of the quilting
I absolutely love the pink damask fabric on the border and backing.
Glad it's finally done since I got the fabric before Jocelyn was born and now she's 3. :)

Kids slipcovered chair

Last year, I bought this Pottery Barn Kids rocking chair at a garage sale for $1.  You can see why it was only $1.

I made a slipcover for it, but never got around to putting the skirt on until this morning.  But I am so happy it's finally done.

Hairpin Lace Afghan

I'm in love with Hairpin lace now. On Ravelry I saw a few things that looked so cool and I had never heard of it before, so I did some research, got me a loom (mine was $5 at a craft store) and started off.
There are lots of ways to make your own loom too but I was lazy. Someday Tyson is going to make me an AWESOME one out of wood with some designs in it...someday.

This is the first and only thing I have made so far. It's a baby blanket for my SIL's new baby girl.

I would do a tutorial but there are much better ones out there than I could do Like the one here I used.

I really messed upon the first blanket. I read the directions to connect them wrong and so it ended being completely diagonal. So I started over. Luckily these are easy to do and they work up quickly

The end result with fringes. I could have crocheted a border but I decided this was easier.

I really loved doing this and I can't wait to do more. I want to do some bookmarks too. Those are really pretty.
