FO: Second scrappy trip

As I've already admitted, when I finished my first scrappy trip quilt, I wasn't keen on making another.

In fact, I used the word "never". Don't be like me.

I love the second versin more than the first, if that's possible.

There are so many favorites in this quilt. And I especially love the back. Ahhh. Yes.

I'm so glad I changed my mind.

Handmade Holidays

I wanted to share a little guest post over at Ellison Lane! I'd love for you to check it out, and you can enter a giveaway on this post. One of the prizes is a Christmas scrap pack from my recent drawstring bag and stocking projects.

I'm sharing a variety of handmade gift suggestions that I've made over the years.

FO: Mittens for Jeni

It's a little embarrassing when I think about how long these took me.

The actual knitting took place over just a few months.

But there was a.... year and a half hiatus before the second one was started. Yeah, something like that. Oh, well. They're done now, and living in a much more appropriate climate than Houston, Texas. The pattern is O.W.L. Mittens, from this magazine

I'm really proud of my colorwork progress.

This was the most complicated colorwork I've completed so far. I hope to try something even more challenging next year!
