Wrapping up 2014 - part 1

 Happy New Year! 
I have been so bad about blogging this year, but  I wanted to finish up posting quilts I completed in   2014.  I fell in love with the giant star quilt and decided to make one as a wall hanging.  We have those big walls created by high ceilings that are impossible to decorate and I needed something big but didn't want to break the bank.  I got out my stash of AMH and used some linen I had found cheap. 

This was supposed to be a 'tester' to see how it went before making a 'real' one. 
Well, I love this and it has been hung for about 6 months now.  I used the hanging method from Amy ala mode and am thrilled with how it looks, kinda floating.
In other needle news, I have knitted many a circular scarf.... K,K,K.  Part of my plan for the future is to deviate from the easy, so I decided to tackle crochet.  I have done it before, years ago, and as a child was taught by my grandmother. I picked a super easy pattern to refresh myself and now have a collection of crochet scarfs as well, but plan to move on to the Crafty class on Crochet, with the Sunday Shawl as my end of year goal.  Wish me luck!
