With Needles

I so enjoyed reading your comments on yesterday's post.  I got another quilt cut out and started these gloves as a Christmas present for my daughter.  Lori suggested that I do some applique.  Awhile back I won her giveaway and since she's the Queen of applique in my book, I decided to spend some time today studying her methods and trying a small applique quilt pattern that I have.  Di's comment about her husband borrowing her machine to make a Halloween costume had me laughing.  She has a recipe on her blog today for Pumpkin Fudge.  Yum, yum and yum!  Time to make some coffee and get to work.  Have a blessed day!



  1. I would go crazy without my machine. Those are going to turn out so cute...I love the yarn you picked, she's going to love them. I know I would.

  2. Well when your machine get there you will definatly have plenty of things to test it out with. Have a great day.

  3. Oh how fun Renee!! :o) I really like your alternative to sewing. :o)
    I'm with Kathy, at this stage in the game, I think I would become a stalker! :o) Tap tap tap on the window sort of stalker. :o)
    Have a great day friend. :o)
    Sincerely - Tricia
    ps. It is suppose to be 80 today. Isn't that just nuts? I want some fall cold crisp weather like you are having! :o)

  4. This post makes me want to pick up my tiny knitting needles again. But, the question is- How long before I decide they are too tiny and set them down again?...

  5. Those gloves are cute! I love the yarn you chose.


  6. I am so sorry your machine is still sick and away from you! You are welcome to come and use mine anytime. :) I can not wait to see your Christmas quilt!!! You are one talented lady! Knitting as well? WOW! The yarn is beautiful! :)

  7. Me again!! I got the sweetest note in the mail yesterday. And, I see a little angel sitting on your table in your last post. Isn't she darling? :) Have a wonderful day!

  8. Awesome gloves! Your daughter is going to LOVE them.


  9. Hi Renee...
    I hope reading about my method made some sense to you!
    My daughter Kassidy saw your fingerless gloves you are knitting and wants me to make her some. They are soooo adorable and your yarn choice is fabulous!
    Will you share the name of the book that you are working out of?
    Thanks a bunch!

  10. I am in absolute, complete, and total love with your yarn! The variegation is such a lovely mix of rich colors and the thread looks like such a soft weight.
