The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is my favorite children's book. 
I bought again it for one of my great-nieces, Skylar.

Over 30 years ago, I bought this pattern to make a toy doll for my daughter, Angie.  Since I've used the pattern to make the dog for a great-niece, Audrey.  I used it again to make a caterpillar to go with the book.

I found all the fabric I needed in my stash.

He was a fun project, hope Skylar enjoys him.

January in the Smoky Mountains

This is the view from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's home in North Carolina. 

This wall hanging I made for my sister-in-law Pam's birthday.
The quilting was done with invisible thread, but seems to show up in the photo. 
The thread painted trees were made with one strand to gray and one strand of
brown rayon thread.
