Great news i finished my Granny Stripe Blanket, I started it last October and had been working on it off an on in-between other project.  Thanks to the pattern i got from Attic24, my blanket is big enough for my queen size bed.  Also these are all the other stuff i have been working. Thanks to all the blogs i follow and their great ideas and free patterns starting with, and please go by and see all these web-sites they have a lot to offer.  These items were all given as gifts for Christmas except for the clutch purse and the large granny stripe blanket those were for me.

This is a dress i made.

I made one for Vickie also.
This dress i made from a pattern from Sis Boom called the Jamie Dress.
This is a summer top.
This is my first try at making a clutch purse, not so hot but i like it.
This  is another dress from the pattern from See & Sew  # B5734.
 This one is from the same pattern, just a different bodice.
 And this one is the same as the orange ones i made for Vickie and me, it's from New Look # 0113.
Hope to be making soon.  I an planning to make some baby blankets for some up coming babies in September and December.

Refashioned Dresses

I have also been on a sewing kick. First off  I have refashioned this yellow Mexican style mumu dress, which was way to big for me.  And the white one which was nice but i wanted something a bit cooler, Houston is way to hot to wear anything to heavy in the summer time, my Vickie liked it.  As you can see i cut off the sleeves and the top half so i plan on using these pieces for a clutch purse.  
This is what I have been doing lately, the yellow ones I made for my niece Ashley while i was visiting in AZ. The others I've made since getting back home. I got this idea from .   The purple and red pair are from a tutorial at  please go check them out for more ideas.

This is what i'm working on now. I have seen some very nice ceramic jars on the internet for your yarn, to keep it clean for one and keep it from unraveling. Also to keep the pets paws and hair off of it. As you can see we drink a lot of tea here, so i came up with this idea of recycling this can for my yarn. I thought of covering it with some pretty paper mod podge style but i decided to us my scrapes of yarn instead. I started with a base and then went up like you would when making a basket. As for the top i will be cutting a hole in the lid for the yarn to thru but i don't know yet how i will do it. Since the lid is plastic i'm thinking of using the hot glue gun to melt it and hope that this will keep from catching or snagging the yarn as it passes thru. Any ideas would be would be greatly appreciated.
