Before Knitting there was .....

Quilting! I was really into quilting at one time and that wasn't so long ago. Currently I am making a quilt for my sister's 25th wedding anniversary in May!! Will I get it done in time? Hopefully. If not I can just blame her! She's an avid knitter too and understands the addiction. Here are a couple quilts I won ribbons for in local shows. I think it was about 4 years ago. The first one is called, "Painting Africa" and the second, "Liberty". The Queen size idea came from or sort of as a tribute to friends of mine that had started an orphanage in Uganda. I also have an adopted son that's black and I wanted to do a quilt with the African patterns and colors. The award was for originality. The wall hanging is a dancer that I named "Liberty". You can't see it but she has beads on her ankle and wrist! Her award was second place for miniature's. Believe it or not I don't care for sewing! My sister's quilt is the same pattern as the "Painting Africa" all done in neutrals. Well, hope you don't mind that I was off topic!!!

Janney says your top photo looks like legos.

Nice blog Diane, I love the first photo - the green knitting. Janney asked if I knit it (she's not yet 3) Nope, I've never made anything THAT beautiful before.
