Here's the Bear Paw Pillow! I had some leftover pink & white yarn from a baby present, & saw this pattern as an afghan in an issue of Interweave Knits from sometime in 2005. It's been sitting in my design/creative room ever since Johnathan & I got married. Thought it was fitting to finally finish it on the weekend of our 1 year anniversary. Also, anyone having a baby girl that would like this, please let me know, as it will just sit in the closet for a long time.

This is Shaun's quilt. While Johnathan & I were in Hawaii, we (I should say Johnathan b/c all my choices were too "girly") picked up some very cool blue & white Hawaiian fabric with flowers & surfboards. I had just taken the "One Block Wonder" class at the Quilt Tree. As soon as we got home, I started on this. It was the end of January & Shaun's birthday is the middle of March. Amazingly enough I finished it in time for Fedex to overnight it to his house so he could open the day of his birthday, only to discover he was in Florida!! So a few days later when he got home, he was able to open his present & loves it! If you love wild, large prints & modern designs, I highly recommend this pattern. The book by Maxine Rosenthal is self explanatory & from all the finished tops I saw in my class, there's never a bad finished project!
Well, today is the beginning of the new blog. Had the 360 Yahoo one, but Blogger will give me more freedom without requiring me to learn anymore technology. That will give my brain more space to learn knitting & quilting techniques! Wohoo!
