New Knit Scarf LOOOVE IT

I have not been going to my knitting group for over a year. But they still send me newsletters. This pattern was in there. Very Simple. You can make it as wide as you want, as long as it is a odd number.
Co 11
Pattern : Knit2, *yarn over,knit 2 together* end with knit 1.
Keep doing Pattern till done. Very easy and mindless.
So I made 2. and I am working on #3.
Yarn was Plymouth Thick.
My first coaster. For Spring of coarse!!!!! I really like to use thick yarns.When my hands hurts it is easier to use thicker yarns.

The black one I used Lion Brand Thick.

Dollar store flowers for my milk glass. Pretty I think.
Have a Great Day.

My first ever quilt

One thing I always wanted to learn was to make a quilt. I finally got enough courage to make one. I have been hoarding Amy Butler's LOVE fabric and I didn't know what to do with it. My handicapped sister-in-law's birthday was Wednesday. So I gave her my first quilt.

I have made pocket in a quilt before but no real quilt. I even did binding. To me that was scary. But I just LOVE it.

I am so Happy with it. It is 10 inch squares. I quilted them in the ditch. I did not want to do anything to hard.

<<>This poor kitty. I have used this before. I just think it is soo cute. We have stray Cats around.3 black and white long hair. This winter has been sooooo bad cold, ice, and snow. We have been feeding them cat food. Plus please don't forget the chickens. we feed them too. I am amazed that they cross the street every day to for us to feed them. It's a shame that the owner does not feed them. We are getting hammered with snow again.. So far 6 inches. Plus ice.

Have A Great Day

Ripple Scarf and M & M's

One of my addictions is M & M's. I try to get every new season's.

I don't always put them in a tea cup though.

My Ripple Scarf I double it and make a loop. So comfy and warm. I got the pattern from Lion brand.

One heart I made. Not very pleased with it found the pattern through Theresa's site on my blog bar. She has wonderful tutorials. This one was on you tube

Can't wait for Valentine's Day. We always know Spring is not far away.

Cupcakes and Thrifting

I am a very big thrifty person. I believe that If we can reuse things than lets try to. So I was at my favorite shop and they had these cups and plates. I think they are form 40's and 50's or maybe 60's. I love the colors.

Don't ya love steamy hot chocolate muffins. I only made 5 cuz well my husband and I are trying to change the way we eat. I guess you could say diet. But I hate that word.
I have been crocheting. I made a scarf that I will post about next time.
Waiting for the next part of the winter storm today. Everything is closed due to ice and snow.
Don't the cups and plates remind you of spring????
