I finished my Inner Child Doll, and have plans to make more -- now that I know the basics!
I pulled out my knitting spools & used up some crewl yarn left overs. More on spools HERE
Before I'm asked, no, I don't knit with real needles - or crochet. My Mother-in-Law gave me a container of crochet hooks & I use them once in awhile for needlework

This Crib Quilt was made by our friend Juanita H.
My Mom bought it from her & gave it to DH & I for Christmas
I told my Mom that I would save it in the cedar chest until one of our children marries & starts a family of their own.
It looks like a stamped design - Juanita did the cross stitch & then quilted the border. She added binding and a beautiful cotton back. Juanita is probably my Mom's age (in her 80's) and our families spent a lot of time together while I lived at home.
