Randoms .... sewing

These are a few pillows I made for Tori's chinchillas.   I also made some pads for their condo.  Probably 9-10 pads.   A challenge!!!

This is a quilt which I saw on display at the Honeywell Center.

Six origami bags for the IOLI Convention raffle table.  I took them down to Lafayette in May.

Randoms .... crochet

 This is my take away from the Irish Crochet Motifs class
held at Sheep's Clothing.
With the multiple mistakes and empty flower center,
I put my pin inside!

The class was instructed by Laura Ricketts (Laura Ricketts Designs).     I remember the Jul/Aug 2014 PieceWork magazine cover with Irish Crochet cuffs.  Laura based this class/pattern on her article (photo from magazine).

My Class piece -- I didn't get to the leaf, or rose center.   The facebook page has more photos.  
Link here.    Laura Ricketts brought some of her projects with her & it was fun to have them in hand.  I noticed she has several classes listed on her web site.

 It is wonderful to have practice pieces for crochet stitches; however, it was great to put the stitches learned from crochet class into motion,   and, i have a good start on flowers!!!

Randoms ... knitting

 Two lace trim practice pieces.   Left from Workbasket (Feb 1956) DMC Cebelia size 30.  Right from Piecework magazine, with corrected pattern on web site and ravelry.    size 0 needle, HDT by Yarnplayer, 50/50 wool/silk, color Peace.
 Laura Ricketts, (Laura Ricketts Designs), based this trim (from article Nov/Dec 2014 Piecework issue) on the needle lace found in vault of Lengberg castle, Austria.
 This is on size 3 needles; Red Heart yarn, Heart&Sole.

 GF Beth's knitted swiffer cover (+sponge).   I used the ladder stitch, based on pattern, Zoom, Erica Brembos.  hint: measure the swiffer before knitting!
