I can't believe I didn't see this post until now.  Keelin and I love the blanket, it's very snuggly.

Thanks Laura

Superstitch, I love those fabrics!!  That quilt will be gorgeous.

Here are pics of mine in progress.

The part that's actually put together is just the middle panels with the 2 borders.  I laid the rest out so you could kind of get an idea of what it will look like.  I'll also be hand appliqueing bamboo leaves on the dark blue part.

And here are the rough diagrams of what the finished quilt will look like.

I actually started a little bit of piecing this afternoon, but then my sewing machine started acting up.  Hopefully I can get it to behave tonight after the kids go to bed and I can cuss at it freely.

I haven't posted on here yet, but I've have looking and learning from all of you.  I got my dreads about a month and a half ago and I'm really excited to post my pics.  My sister and sister-in-law put them in for me (thanks, Jezebel!!!).  I have really thick hair and ended up with over a hundred dreads.  I'm loving the way they look and the wonderful personality they all have.  My husband calls me a dirty hippy a lot and isn't quite sure if he likes them, but he'll get used to them (cause I'm not getting rid of them!).  Here's some during pics:

And here's them now about 1 1/2 months old:

I've got the tips banded with rubber bands, but I'm going to try to get those switched over to thread soon.  I would love to be part of a swap if someone would like to organize one, new accessories are always nice.

I did finish a blanket in September.  It was my first knitting project so the blocks are a little bit different sizes.  It was all in garter stitch (which got really boring).  

I also made a few simple flannel receiving blankets since I couldn't find anything in the stores I liked that was affordable.  No pictures of these, but they're just cute flannel with rolled edges.  I'm going to make some more that are double layered sometime soon.  Everyone's blankets are beautiful.  And the baby's too.

Well I still haven't had a chance to post pictures of my completed projects yet, but I have had my baby, yeah!!  His name is Orson James and he also weighed 9 lbs, 5 ounces. He was born on the Sept. 20th.  Here's some pictures I hope you don't mind.  
Orson and I just after the birth, tired but very happy.

Our first family picture with hubby and 2 year old son.

And just the baby not a good picture of it, but I did make the hat he's wearing.

Sorry I just had to show him off.

I'm not sure what it is, it's really fluffy and a very nice expensive yarn.  Here's a couple pictures

I hope this helps.

7  scarflets and fingerless gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by shannon1981 on: August 13, 2005 10:33:33 PM
I made these for my sisters birthdays.  I know it's summer, but they live in Alaska and will be able to use them soon.  These patterns were really easy and a lot of fun.  The pattern for the scarf I found here on craftster.

And I can't find the pattern for the fingerless gloves but it was free somewhere on the net.

I am only a beginning knitter so any feedback is wonderful.  I don't know if it's just the yarn I used, but is mattress stitching usually this hard?

8  sewn journal, late graduation gift in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by shannon1981 on: August 13, 2005 06:45:18 PM
Hi, everyone.  This craft is exclusively inspired by other craftsters.  I made a journal for my sister who graduated in June (I just finished it tonight).  I'm really please with how it turned out.  I used the tutorial here to make it:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10347.0

I added a few details including:  bookmark of ribbon and beads, pen holder, and tie to keep it shut.

I had a lot of fun making this, comments welcome.

9  frog quilt with pattern in Quilting: Completed Projects by shannon1981 on: July 15, 2005 08:09:44 PM
This is a quilt I made for my sister-in-law for her birthday.  I kept seeing one my grandma made at her house and finally asked her for the pattern.  She gave me all her scraps from the one she made to help out too.  This is the first quilt I've made since I was about 14, I had a lot of fun.  I was very intimidated by the hand applique of the frog, but once I got started it wasn't so bad.  The pattern is called "Frog Cabin", not sure why since the block is courthouse steps and not log cabin.   My mom did the machine quilting with her long arm machine.  Let me know what you think.

10  woven treasure bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shannon1981 on: July 13, 2005 07:15:21 PM
I thought these were a great fun project and perfect for using up yarn left over from other projects.  The bag I took a class on and the eyeglass holders were mother's day presents.  I've got another little purse in the making now that's about 3 times the size of the first(it's really small only about 4 inches tall).
