SEW AND TELL
The beautiful things being created at the Deming Library and in our homes every week are so amazing. Helen has finished her cabled scarf knitted with a super wash wool. It is soft, warm and washable.
Variety is the spice of life and Lorraine is spicing it up with some of her unique quilts. She also stitched up that cheery, bright carry-all bag beside her.
This is a stuffed toy lizard modified from a pattern by Brenda Franklin. Lorraine knitted the top as instructed in the pattern then she cut fabric for the underside and stitched them together. This has become the most shared pattern in our group. Some of us use it to make the pattern's intended pelt scarves but, as shown here it serves well as reptilian amusement.
