Deployment projects

When My hubby is away I spend most nights celebrating that the kids are in bed by curling up on the couch with a project while I watch my way through a TV series on DVD. Here are some of the projects I did over the past year while Sam was gone.

A counted cross stitch Tinker Bell blanket that I gave to a lady I visit teach for her new baby.

A stamped quilt top. I LOVE this one so much that I am keeping it in hopes that Sam and I finally have that boy we've been wanting some day.

And pillow cases. One of these I did while he was away, the other I did with my Sister in-law the last time I was home visiting the family.

Right now I have 2 projects going that I hope to finish soon. A baby blanket done with some quilt blocks my sister gave me a few years ago for my birthday that I have finally put together into a blanket. And another set of quilt blocks from my other sister.

Oh, and for those of you who love to watch TV series like I do, here is a list of some of the shows I have devoured over the last year on my lonely night at home and LOVED.

  • Lois and Clark, The New Adventures of Superman

  • Robin Hood- BBC series

  • The Office

  • Outsourced

  • Sherlock- BBC series


  1. The Tinkerbell blanket is so cute!! And the boy blanket is finally done!! And it looks great!! I absolutely love your pillow cases!! I may have to do some for us... :) And thanks for the recommendations for shows...sometimes it's nice to not think while working on projects!
