Welder’s Cap

Side view

Before we left for our most recent trip to Las Vegas, my nephew-in-law asked if I could make a few of these caps for him.  I whipped up a batch.  The crown is made with four panels.  Each seam is reinforced with a zig-zag stitch.  The bill has batting and is quilted to create a sturdiness that is required..  The cap is lined to help with the shaping.  These were fun to make.  It took me between 50-55 minutes to complete one cap

New Tees–SRE

Since my last post on Silk Ribbon Embroidery, I completed seveal more t-shirts.  These refashioning projects were simply delightful.  I love working the texture and weight of the White Stag t-shirts.  They are excellent for this type of project

Pink Floral Splash

   Silk ribbon embroidery is an excellent way to relax while being productive.  These refashioned t-shirts make great gifts.

Traveling Bug Adventure


I took a semi respite from crafting to do some traveling with my hubby.  In the last couple of months we’ve taken three major trips.  Our adventure took us traveling throughout the SW (NV, UT, AZ, & NM).  Another trip afforded an opportunity to explore Northern and Central California and a third to Vegas.

Here are a few more pictures.          

To keep my hands busy, I took along my knitting.  It was on this trip that I finished the peach baby’s blanket (earlier post).  I also started another afghan.  I chose red worsted yarn for this project.  Hopefully, I will get it done before Christmas.  When I get an opportunity I will post a picture of it as a work in progress.
