free pattern grandma’s a touch of south west afghan

This is one of three afghans that I received for my wedding many years ago.  This one is from my husbands grandmother on his mother's side.  This won her 1st place at the Lincoln County Fair in Nevada one year.

Make starting chain as long as you wish to make the afghan start with a tail and leave a tail at the end of every row when you cut the yarn at the end of every row.

Just a few hats

My daughter is trying to raise funds for a school field trip that happens in June of 2013.  The trip cost $3,000.00.  These are items we are making to try and sell to raise that money as the school will not be doing fund raisers the students have to figure out how to raise the money themselves.  So I am donating my time and supplies to her and she will make some ammigurumi too and add those to this page too.  Most items are one of a kind unless you do a special order which will take a little more time to make but happy to do it.

Day 4
dress with matching slip

I waited 1 day to post the last two items in the heirloom sewing becasue I was working on posting the free lace pattern yesterday.  This would have been a 7 day set but I decided to show the matching sets the dress with matching slips together instead of separate so this is the last post of heirloom baby dresses for  a while.
