1  It's a boy! Baby Milwaukee Brewer's Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by T-Sam on: July 28, 2006 02:21:55 PM
My old college roommate became a  1st time Father to a baby boy, I knew I had to make a baby Milwaukee Brewers Quilt for the little rascal.  His Dad is a crazed Brewer's and baseball fan and I know he can't wait to teach his new son to play the game.  The new  Milwaukee stadium rocks!  Still Brewer's fans have to be all heart  Wink

Anyway this was my first quilting attempt and was quite a challenge for me.  My blocks turned out less then perfect, but I am still very proud.  Dad and Mom seemed to really appreciate, which makes it well worth all the effort.  I embroidered the babies name in the lower left hand corner w/baseball patch.

Tumbling Block Quilt in Progress....

I am having trouble deciding on the colors for this quilt.  It is only my second quilt ever.  I feel like the colors are to diverse and am thinking about using the blocks to make two quilts instead of one.  One with lighter colors, whites, pastels etc. and one with very dark colors, navy, red, black etc.  Any ideas or suggestions.  I am thinking for the lighter one I may need to cut out a lot more white diamonds to really lighten it up a lot.

At first my idea was to lay it out in order to make them appear to be buildings and a city. 

I know the pic is very small it is the best I could do Undecided

4  Self-Stripping Handknit Socks for Mom! in Knitting: Completed Projects by T-Sam on: July 19, 2006 09:27:42 AM
Self-Stripping Socks for Mom!

Here they are my first completed handknit socks!  They were very fun to make.  I have made other socks but never a pair.  I always stop after the first sock!!!  LOL!!!  The stripping is a little off, varies from sock to sock, you can notice it especially in the heel area.   I didn't use a self-stripping pattern, just a regular pattern and that is probably the problem there.  They are merino wool and very warm.  I actually finished them 2 months ago, but just became a craftsters member so I had to post them.  Thanx for looking.

5  Christmas Wreaths in Winter Holidays by T-Sam on: July 19, 2006 09:07:56 AM
Christmas Wreath Plans in July.....hehe...

Pictures of the bittersweet wreath and cedar wreath I made last Dec. I also made some spruce wreaths totaling about 10 wreaths as X-mas gifts.  The Bittersweet wreaths dry out indoors and last forever!
My parents own a X-mas tree farm, and this year I want to try to sell some.  My parents have a serve yourself policy w/the trees 10 dollars each (very cheap) and put your money in the bucket. 
Sorry about the picture quality.  The cedar wreath has little blue berries that grow on the tree on it, but you can't see them.
I was going to do the same with the wreaths.  How much would you charge for each? 12$ or 15$ (That is more than the trees cost?) Any suggestions?

This is my very first post!!!  I hope it works!!! lol Smiley
