Hurray, I finished the quilts. Two rather small quilts for two little girls. One for Jadon and one for Ella. Quilters please do not take a close look. Because I pretty much made my own rules when I made these quilts. My Mother will see them tomorrow (my mother the Quilter)! She will not be too proud of her daughter.

Not everything goes as I would like. I knitted three...three..Hats for our youngest granddaughter. None of them fit. I actually followed the pattern when I knitted the first one. Tried it on her...didn't fit. Knitted another one. Added stiches...well you get the idea. They match the afghan I knitted for her. Thank goodness afghans don't have to fit. Just mainly cover the child. Oh, this is a picture of the medium size one. Cute but too small.

My dear, darling husband said this looks like the tin man...Only green. And I think he is right. Not exactly what I was aiming for. The head is from a press mold. I used embossing powder on the head and domino. The legs and arms are turquoise stones. And....I think it needs some kind of hair. Maybe then it wouldn't look quite so much like the tin man.
