Judah's heart

Monday I added Judah's heart to my log cabin quilt. This is the 13th heart so far. Sometimes when I look at this quilt I have to wonder how long it will be before it's covered in red hearts.

My first Stash-buster complete

I have completed my first Stash-buster project. I knit this simple hat using a skein of Cascade 220 that was in my yarn stash for few years. The pattern is Station Hat from Malabrigo. I was able to finish it in a weekend and it's already home with Kylie.

Amanda sent me a link to this challenge. I have been telling my family and friends I want to use things in my stash in 2013. I have a lot of projects both knitting and stitching that I really want to do and I hope  this challenge will be encourage me to continue to do just that. You can learn more about it here. Tonight I am going to start my first stash-buster knitting project.

Merry Valentine's Day

I made this wreath after seeing one on Pinterest. I used left-over burlap and ribbon from my stash. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. It is my first Valentine decoration this year.
