Knitting, knitting, knitting

Knitting, knitting, knitting...what fun! Okay, Santa's workshop is in high gear...and laughing all the way! Ho HO Ho.

This is for a wonderful new little girl, a mere 6 weeks old at the moment. This will keep her warm and stylish! It was a quick knit and it feels soooo soft. Love the yarn. I added the little crochet flower on the hat and the icord to hold the mittens. I know my child had a habit of taking things like mittens and socks off. Can't risk loosing these!

Next up...more in-progress works...

This is a hat for my son. He has strick instructions, it must be soft, red, and washable. is his hat about half done. It is in a cotton / acrylic mix and he loves the color. I just hope it fits and is stretchy enough.

And finally, an update on the sock progress. I am almost done with the first and have started about 2" on the second sock. I love the feel and look. It shouldn't take me much to finish these, just been a little pre-occupied. :)

Before I forget, I just want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for my friends, family, for the country we live in, the opportunities we have and most importantly our freedom. May God Bless Each and Every One of you!

Many Blessings,

Adding A Little Colour

Hello there...I have done a little adding a little colour to my bedroom. I bought about 3 yards of this lovely blue home decor fabric. I made 6" strips and folded them in half and sewed them onto the bottom of this ready made cream bedskirt at the hem sem so it looks tiered down. Then with the remaining fabric I made two pillow shams. I added a little velveteen pillow and hung up on the wall my grandmothers wedding ring quilt. It is only a twin size and in rather poor condition, but I still enjoy looking at it from a distance. If you look closely on the left you will see me in all my youth (yep, my baby picture). Have a wonderful weekend! ~Paula
