Catching up with pictures

Here are some of the things I have been up to. These first two pictures are of the fabric crowns I made. My #2 daughter had a canned food drive at her school and she promised that I would make a crown for the winner. I had to make a practice crown since I didn't know what I was doing and my youngest son wanted that one for himself. This one is the crown for the winning teacher. I heard he wore it proudly all day long. It is held together in the back with elastic and a button so it would fit any size head. I'm pretty aware that there are many different head sizes since I have a ginormous head and 99.9% of hats will not fit me. I wanted to make sure it would fit anyone, so I added the elastic in the back. This is the practice crown I made at first. Turned out pretty cute for not having a pattern. It was a little too small, so I just added several strips of elastic in the back and it fits perfectly.

Here is one of the quilts I made for the Veterans Day dinner raffle. It is about 48 x 60.

Here is the 2nd quilt. This is the upside down one. You can see the writing in the top right corner of the quilt. What you can't see is the back, which when I am holding it is upside down for me. Of course, you can't see both the back and the front at the same time, so unless I tell you that the back is upside down, you never could tell. But, I know. And it is driving me nuts.

And finally, these are the dozen quilts that are going to the Friends of the Pine Ridge Reservation. There are 10 of the dark baby quilts, one that has bears and green squares and then one bigger quilt on the left end. It feels so good to get them out of the house and into hands of people who can use them. Click on the picture to enlarge it and see the quilts bigger. They really are cute, just strange for baby quilts if you ask me.
