I'd love to have you among my "followers". You don't have to read my ramblings.... just follow.

The pillow is finished. This time the cables are hard to see, but it sure looks nice on my wildly flowered sofa. The picture on the right shows the "envelope" style closing in the back making it easy to slip on and off for washing. Another time, I will probably add buttons to the back for a more professional look. This was quite easy, and I am anxious to do one that I can put in my store. I have designed (in my spare time) one with a leaf design, and another that will be all different bright colors in a geometric. I love the fact that most of it is mindless knitting, so I can take it with me to Dr.'s offices, watch a good movie or hold a reasonable conversation and still knit. Not too much of the "count every stitch" that doesn't lend itself well to other activities when one is of advanced age.
Now, I am off to finish the little flower for the lacey baby hat. Then, on to the next project. Or, maybe I should finish one that remains in my knitting basket as a UFO. We'll see.....

I have finished the pillow cover, and it is on the pillow. If I do say so myself, it looks pretty nice. I have finished a child's hat (lacy, crocheted, and very sweet), and tomorrow I will do the little flower that goes on it. I started a layette, but didn't like the yarn I was doing it with, so I rippppped and rippppped. The layette will be for my neighbor who is expecting a grand daughter in October. I ordered different yarn.
I made a scarf for "Dress for Success" as a donation, then added one of my purses with a tea tote (filled) in the purse. This is a wonderful cause, and I am delighted to be able to help someone get ahead.
In between all this I made a little gift for my brother-in-law for when he and my sister visit next month. He is so patient with us two sisters, and I love him dearly. It's just a little something - doesn't amount to much, but it says "I love you, and Thank You"
Soon as the sun shines again in this part of the woods I will be taking some pictures. Seems like we may never see the sun again. It is always dark a dreary these days.
Many blessings to everyone.... stay happy
