proud of myself

If I was a better seamstress and, if my buttonholer on my sewing machine was working, this would've been a lot more fun.
It was an easy pattern, using charm squares.
I love the way it looks, now will be anxious to see if it fits Lila.

happy new niece, Anthony

Something to pass on

Rod's mother, Trudy, a superb sewer and quilter, made this vest for Katie many years ago.
It's still a little too big for Lila, but time to pass it on before I can't find it.

Some finished projects

For the Deinhammer Cousins, Jace and Reid

I found the fabric and hat at: totallythomas

It's a great toy store in Carmel Mountain Plaza.
The ultimate Thomas store, but loads of fun stuff for girls!
Lots of Calico Critter dollhouse accessories.

But, I really do think I could do without ugly dolls. How about you???

another hat

The first of many baby gifts that need completing.
A baby boom is a good thing!

The flowers in the background were a lovely Mother's Day surprise from Katie, Derek and Lila, kindly delivered by Michael.
Laurie sent me an Amazon certificate with which I promptly bought the cutest polka dot cake plate that came in the cutest polka dot hat box. Lovely decor for the 'room,' which has momentarily stalled out.

Back to crochet...

Way cuter on my live model!

Since the coffee cozies are easier to crochet than knit, I thought I'd better try crocheting a baby hat too.
Viola: one day's product...

A labor of love

This knitted shrug was made for Pam's dear friend to wear as she starts treatment for a debilitating disease.
We hope she feels wrapped in love.
Thank you, Pam. You make a lovely model.
