A Bunch of Finishes for Amanda

I made Amanda some PJs:


And she asked me for a "sparkly grocery bag holder in patriotic colors":


And I knitted her a beanie:


And the grocery bag holder was so easy to make that I Whipped up a Grinch Halloween one for me!


- got out all my Halloween decorations too!







Then I cut a bunch of tumblers from my scraps:













And I got a picture of this little pumpkin!

Finishes

Finally have my "peacock quilt" to the flimsie stage! Turned out much better than I thought! I had the fabric "hoarded" for years because I wanted to find the perfect pattern to show off the fabric! I was very disappointed with the results at the time, and put it away after the majority was done....so sad....THEN...I ordered the matching gold to frame it, and cut a BIG border full of flowers and peacocks....and Much Better:









- Also got a request from hubby to make his gigantic head a knit cap, so:






And Amanda received to cap I made for her boyfriend...he is deployed so she is modeling it:






And timed myself making this next block..."WILD AND GOOSEY" from Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville:



15 minutes...not too bad...except that I need 480 blocks for a decent sized Quilt of Valor....hmm...but I LOVE PAPER PIECING,so this may just be a slow going quilt (one I gift to a veteran family member).
Also made one more block towards my "ANNIVERSARY QUILT"



Block 26 ....only 8 more to go....then the appliquéd border!
I will definitely be entering this quilt into the OC fair! At least that's the goal...we will see how the hand appliqué goes!

And for some crazy reason, I had a hankering to make socks! Seemed like a good airplane project, and we will be traveling to Virginia to spoil Kali next week, so I am prepared! Pics to follow!

Leaving you with another PERFECT finish:
