35th.Ave 2013 BOM

The last two days I have been working on putting all these blocks together and it was quite a big job!

NASA Star Blocks

Astronaut Karen Nyberg has faced down the challenge of sewing in weightlessness!

Teapot Cozy

Last week Heather over at Books and Quilts featured a very cute teapot cozy I want to make. It reminded me of the one I crocheted 40 years ago, this is it! You can probably tell it's vintage easily by the '70's colors, LOL……………...
