nobis opus splendeat: we need more glitter

The next and possibly the last category of  xmas-making-of-things.  I suppose the tablet cozy could have fallen into this catagory, had it not already been in the last one.  First, let’s start with something for me!

I saw this yarn around new years and had to have it.  Then I started working with it and figured out that I was gonna need more.   Then I had to find a third store to finish filling my need.

I just love the colors and I used a ‘Q’ sized hook (which was comically large) and 18 balls of yarn.  The blanket is enormous, I think it would fit on a queen sized bed.

Second entry: a tea cozy for Nana

I had the measurements of the teapot, but that’s all I had.  I used this Emily Taylor’s Domestic Diva for Riley Blake in red for the outside and in brown for the inside.

All the quilting was freehanded along the damask  pattern on the outside. Binding around the edges and a little loop on top for pulling!

 

Finally, more warm for me: flannel for pyjamas.  I’m going to do a separate post on all of my pyjama pants, by here is the fabric:

oh yeah, gotta love the monkeys 😀
