For some reason I am having trouble with MQP and posting pictures through my tablet.  Let's see if this works.

Here is my Chatelaine.  The finished measurements are 53" overall, width at bottom 5" tapering to 2-1/4" at the neck.  At the 15" mark from bottom is where my taper started as I curved down to 4".  

There are a lot of ideas on Pinterest.  My Featherweight group had a great time making these and each of us wears them for handwork.  I carry mine with me when I monitor in the sewing room as we are not supposed to work while monitoring, but I can manage handwork as I can still see people coming/going.

Nice idea except for the warm weather sisters.

What a great idea as an alternative.  Am like, Linda.  Living in Nevada, only have a few really cold days of winter, and I have plenty to wear.

Have a quilt top that would be perfect for two of them...I have been needing a shawl to read in bed in the winter.

Great altefnative, Kathy! Thanks for mentioning the scource. I've watched , and have made a Pinterest board for adding project ideas to :-))

Kathy, I have been a fan of that project for a couple years. I belong to their facebook page. Been wanting to make one ever since I saw the video, just other things got in the way. I don't need sweatshirts living here in Tucson as I have plenty after living in Ohio. This is a wonderful idea. And if the person who receives one doesn't need it, it can be given to a shut-in or someone in the hospital. Perfect!

Ladies, I have a proposition.  For those of you who are not interested in the Sweatshirt mission. (Giving or receiving)  How would you feel about an alternate challenge of doing a Quilted Hug?  If you go on Facebook and search "Quilted Hug Project" it will take you to their site, where a free pattern is available.  Let me know.  Thanks.

Beautiful calico cat Kathy!

This is ElliMae, she is a brat. Only time she will sit in my lap is when I'm hand sewing in the recliner.

Beth, did you feel the shaking in your neck of the woods this morning?  My brother lives in Woodinville and he said it woke them up.  We were in NC when the 2 hit in CA.  Some in our area felt both and others felt nothing.  It was close enough to Death Valley that I would expect some to feel them.  So many aftershocks.
