Pink Nesting Dolls

For some reason I've always been fascinated by Nesting Dolls and decided to make some of my own with a twist.  I plan to embellish these gals one day

Batman it is

It took a very LONG time to finish this Batman quilt, as well as finding enough different prints to combine.  I finally finished it for the ABSOLUTE Love of my life, and hope he enjoys it.
Once I ran out of fabric, I began making crazy blocks with the leftover scraps (recycle and resourceful...LOL)

1st Knitting Project - Fall Scarf

(And it's already on the way to a DEAR friend of mine)

This is a quilt I made for one of the old neighbor kids, whose now all grown up with her own child.  She also affectionately calls me "mom"...she's like one of my own daughters.


This was made for my son's teacher whose wife had a baby...they are both what prints would be more appropriate
