Lydia and I made a strip quilt for Nana and Papa Norton before we went to England. We brought it to them as a thank you gift for letting us stay at their house for three weeks.
Lydia and I enjoyed sewing the top together and also quilting it once it was pieced together with the back and batting. We love you Nana and Papa! We will never forget the wonderful time we had with you last June. Thank you again so much for all you did for us and with us. ________________________________________________________________ I made a princess dress, or renaissance dress, for my little friend Eden that I babysit. She turned 3 years old last month.
I knitted this blanket for a friend who just had a baby last month. It’s a small blanket, about 2 1/2 feet square.
I have never knitted a project like this before and I was fascinated with how the lambs were knit into the green blanket. Each lamb was worked with a separate “spool” of yarn held to the back of the blanket. In this picture I’m working the third row of lambs.
The yarn I used for the sheep was so fluffy that the stitches were almost indefinable. The black heads and feet I added after the blanket was completed using a simple satin stitch.
This past week my Mom visited this long distant friend of ours to see the new baby. He is so precious. I can’t wait to meet him.
