My Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts all use fiber. Fabric, yarn, thread, some type of fiber. Quilting and crocheting are the crafts I do the most. I also knit, sew, and do counted crossstitch. I've done more knitting than normal in the last year. It started with a shrug for my best friend and continued with 3 Christmas gifts and my first original knitting design. I have an embroidery project (a tea towel) that I started 6 months ago. That's a story for later.

rail fence quilt

I finished this rail fence quilt for Project Linus last Sunday. It measures 40 by 46 inches. I quilted in the ditch next to the pink and blue zig-zags and quilted a wavy line down the middle of the border.
