Darrell refers to all of my crafting projects as basket weaving, however, let it be known that I don’t weave any baskets what-so-ever. There is a Pine Needle Basket Weaving class here at the Plantation and they produce some beautiful baskets, but I have not attended that class – yet!!!
Quilting is probably my biggest hobby. Last year I purchased a Janome 760 Digital Sewing Machine just for my quilting projects. My goal was to make a quilt for each grand child; this year I was able to achieve that goal. My next goal is to make a twin size quilt for each grandchild. Here are pictures of the quilts I have made for each of them.
I have also made a few other quilting projects as well.
Another hobby that I enjoy is beading. Here are a few of the items that I have made.
Here are some pillow cases that I made for Catia and Kalina for Christmas this year.
And a blanket that I made for Catia, Katie got into the act here. Katie and Alex both like to get involved in craft projects – especially anything involving yarn or thread.
I, also, enjoy crocheting; here is a blanket I crocheted for Rocco. As you can see, Alex got in on this project.
There are other crafts that take place at the clubhouse like making greeting cards, boxes, chair canning, etc.. Here are some little boxes that I made out of greeting cards and a rag bag that I made.
Another hobby that I enjoy doing, that is not pictured here, is digital scrapbooking. I have made photo albums of our grandchildren, a family vacation at LGE, and our summer trip with Briana.
Well, there you go. These are just a few of my “Basket Weaving Endeavors”. It has kept me busy, been lots of fun, and given me hours of enjoyment. Rainbow Plantation is a great place to winter for anyone wanting to learn some crafts. Hope to see you there.
