Who knew you could make socks on a sewing machine? These are the socks I made on the sew-along with Doreen this week. They are made out of an old t-shirt I got on a bicycle ride for Safe Harbor.

I watched the Scrappy Market Tote on Craftsy by Christina Cameli. She uses multi-sized leftover scraps to make an unconventional and at times , uneven pieced items. I did choose to make center pieces more conventional but I’m pleased with the scrappy look. Karla Milota

Our daughter, Gwyneth, is going to graduate from Winthrop University in May. She doesn’t know I have made her a memory quilt out of t-shirts from all the schools she attended wherever we lived.
