A Little Quilting and a Lot of Crafting

Things here in the new house are settling down to almost normal.  Well as normal as breaking in a very nervous dog to a new environment can be.  She isn't big on boxes or sudden movements or dropping things, you get the picture.  On the plus side she is a sweetheart and very well behaved.

In between emptying the boxes and walking the dog I have set up my quilting room and have made great progress on my piece for the  Tree Bird hop, my day is March 20. You will have to wait for those pictures.

We live in an area where there are lots of activities available through out the week.  This week I signed up for a session on Card Making.

For a small fee the leader of the class/group brings all of the parts so that you can make 4 cards.  It was a nice evening and I brought these home with me.

Great way to meet people with like interests.

Yesterday I went to a meeting of a group called Angel Snugs. It is a knitting and looming group who meet weekly to make hats for 38 pediatric oncology hospitals throughout the US.  I had never tried looming, Well that is not entirely correct, as a child I remember having a wooden spool with 4 or 5 nails hammered into the top that I used to make long knitted chains ....  I have no idea for what purpose,

Anyway I made the small hat as my sample during the session, maybe 2 - 2 1/2 hours.

I made the larger hat after stopping to get my own  looms.   Needed an excuse to get a new toy  :-}

Again, another group of lovely ladies to chat with and learn about the area and things to be done as well as places to go.  It was amazing how many of them also quilt.

I think I can be very productive here.


  1. What beautiful cards! It is so nice to hear that you are finding such lovely groups and people to fit into your new surroundings.

  2. How great to jump right into your new surroundings creative world. Beautiful cards and caps!

  3. How exciting to find new friends with like interests so quickly. You are really settling in to the new place.

    The cards are so pretty. I've never made cards but have received some that a friend has made. They are so special.

    The loom is interesting. I can't picture getting those adorable caps from the ring. Maybe I'll look it up on YouTube.

    Enjoy your week!

  5. We made doll rugs from the knitting spools. I still have mine...might be a genuine antique now! Anyway, I love that you joined with groups that had your interests. A great way to meet new friends and find out the comings and goings of your new hometown. How lucky you are!
