OK, I am crazy proud...

I actually finished an honest to goodness quilt for Emily yesterday. This the real thing; simple in design yes, but a real life quilt! And it turned out very well. Sure, there are a few areas where my stitches could have been a bit more even and the corners are not perfectly aligned, but it really looks good if I do say so myself. I didn't even use a pattern, just my good old sense of style. Yeah, I'm that good.
I also am about 1 hours worth of work close to finishing my own afghan made of wonderful Lion Brand Homespun.

What is next, you ask? Well, let me tell you...Joe has asked me to make him a cardigan. I am pretty nervous about it as he is a picky person and I have never actually made a garment that has to fit someone, very different than a blanket in which there is no "fit", but I will give it a shot anyway. I will post more on that as I decide what pattern and yarn I will use.
