More Fall handiwork

Wasabi Girl has joined the knitting club at school.  They have taught her to knit - something I wasn't successful at.  I think it's a lot more fun to do with friends.  Here is her first finished piece, a baby blanket that she is donating to charity.  All of the kids in the club are making these small blankets.  Very sweet.  She actually got it done pretty fast.  I'm so proud of her.  She's already started on another one.

Time for some new seasonal coasters.  I found this pattern on pinterest.  You can find the instructions here.

Wasabi Girl thought it was outrageous that I didn't have an appropriate tea towel for the Thanksgiving season so I made this one:

I had the trim left over from a Halloween project last year.

This cute little guy is available as a free pattern from Bird Brain Designs. 

Finally, I finished up the top for my "Finally Fall" quilt.

It's pretty big.  Wasabi Girl is holding out her arms as far as she can.  I'm hoping to get this one quilted up before Fall is over.  Sorry about the bad lighting in the picture.  I'll get better pictures when it's daylight again.

I'm still stubbornly refusing to let Christmas sneak into the house, although I do have some Amaryllis bulbs in plain pots that are sprouting.

I get to cook Thanksgiving this year.  One of my favorite things to do.  So glad it's my turn again.  Are you cooking or traveling this year?

Awesome projects! I'm so impressed with the quilt - and with your daughter for learning to knit. I've been trying to learn for 30 years now - not making much progress, but I still pick it up and try occasionally.

I am both traveling AND cooking this year. Son is on call at his job over the holiday, so Mom to the rescue. This will be the third year that we've loaded up the turkey and all the trimmings and taken it to him. We also feed any other young men from his fraternity that have to stay in town. It's a hassle - but the fun makes up for it.
