new projects.

the Gryffindor scarf

knitted handbag

Thursday, July 21, 2011


I made this for Tyler Flowers, he is a friend to my two oldest girls and came with us to the
midnight premire event for the last Harry Potter movie on the 15th of July. It was a wonderful
night and we all had a great time. When we saw someone with a knitted Gryffindor scarf and I
said I thought I could do that he asked me to make him one so I did and here is the end
results. I just have a dislike for the way the opposite color shows when you bring it up the side of
the work. but I love the scarf no matter what. it is more than 2 yards long.

This is my latest project. knitting a blanket for my daughter Sarai to take with her to collage. She turns 18 in just over two weeks and then graduates from High School and then she will be heading off to collage in the fall. So far it is about half way done. It makes me think of icecream.

fun to make and now I have a place for all my cords when
I travel. neat huh. I like it and the button hole works to

my new toys

I love this. I always use the pencils but they always brake. even if you buy the more spendy ones they still brake. So I decided to try this and yea it works. ya pushe the yellow button at the bottom and you can replace the chalk. I got this kit for I think around $12.00 but it was totally worth the money. I also got new sheers, titaium blades. yippie.

back cover photo. I'm not chosing this one.

This is from a serious of pictures my husband took last night so I can chose 3 to send to the publisher for promotion material and for the back of the book. I don't like the way I look in picture. not photogenic like my girls. Now to the other thing I wanted to tell you. I was sent a bunch of things telling me about the next step and one of the options for me is to sent the publisher a list of e-mails of friends and family to recieve an e-mail announcement about the release of my book. If you'd like to get the e-mail from my publisher send me your e-mail to mine. patdavila@juno.com
This is so exciting I am still beside my self. yea.

I'm getting published!

Ok so as I said before I was offered a contract to publish my book. I had a friend look it over he is a contract lawyer. He said it was a good contract and fair so I signed it this morning and sent it back to them. My book "A disappointing Homecoming" is about Luke James return from the middle East after being wounded in the war. His journey home takes many turns with faith building expirences along the way. I believe it is one of my best. I've written 10 books and about 10 children's books. But I have been working on getting published for about 2 1/2 years now. This has been the most amazing week I've ever had. So we will just wait now for production to start. Yea me.

This is not quilting but here goes.

The publishing company that I sent my manuscript to called me today and said they want to publish it. Yea me. My sister and her co-worker jumped up and down at work for me today. Yea them. I am beside myself today but trying to remember that it's not published yet. I still have to read the contract again and wait to hear from the lawyer I e-mailed it to before I agree to it. But either way a traditional company wants to publish my book and thinks it has a chance. yea.

And the winner is!

A couple of month back I asked for
donations for my girls to raise money
to go to girls camp this summer.
Well Ginny from
sent me her pink pokadot purse which
was baught for a little girl by her mom
to carry her scripture's in every week to
church. That was until she got a better
look at it. She kind of wants to keep it
for herself, but I think she will give it
to Quinn like she planned. Her purse sold
for about $20.00 So she wins this quilt.
Ginny e-mail me at patdavila@juno.com
and give my the address where to send
this. Thank you so much your donation
help so much it was a big hit with the little
girl who got it. she was carrying it around
empty very proud of her treasure.

It's te cats meow

So here's the top of this quilt.
I'm thinking fr a border that
I will try to find a striped fabric
with all these colors. When it's
put on the striped will radiate out to
the edges. Just the picture in my
head. share your thoughts for
a boardor.

Its the cats meow

The first block is done. I love it when I put them together I think
I might use another thin strip of the tan/yellow between the
blocks. Opinions are welcome as always.It was my sisters idea
to put a strip around the block to bring out the yellow in the cats.
I love the idea, i really like these blocks. I think it is one of my
favorites I've done in a while.

I finished this top this morning.
I went with purple for the boarder
because I find that I was leaning
toward the green again. I love green.
I wanted to go with something
