Just in time for this cold wind and snow I finished my first shawl. It is called Heidetuch and I saw it on one of the German knitting blogs.I added the ruffles along the neckline to hide where I changed the yarns. When I went shopping last week I found this awesome purple coat and it matches very nicely with my shawl , was on sale and got a discount because it had some threads pulled so I had to buy it.

I did It! I sold my first larger Artquilt yesterday. It is a wallhanging called" Sunrise Waves "and the new owner asked me to make her a companion piece for it. I could do the happy dance right now. I have started to design the 2nd quilt this morning and hope to put up a background this weekend.
