Faking it for Lily

I'm self taught.

By "self taught" I mean I have no one teacher but rather I read multiple sources OR I look at a picture and try to figure it out (faking it). I've been faking quilts for a while now and my lovely sister just had a lovely baby so I'm going to fake her a quilt.

These little dolls will be sewn on white patchwork squares; I will "fake" embroider. Since I'm perpetually low on time, I hope to finish the quilt by her 12th birthday.

Just off the needles

I have two projects just finished this week. The first is a lace scarf (pattern here) made with the softest alpaca (a gift from my good friend Heather on her trip to France)

The second is actually off the hook--

... get it? OFF THE HOOK!
