Babies are great! This fun mitered blankie and fuzzy burpies were fast and easy gifts for our newest friend.

Another pair of socks. These have no wool and can be worn in summer easily. The yarn is called Diversity- so springy feeling and fun knitting.

 These little handy needle books are perfect! I actually try to sort my needles this way- the smalls for when I'm using just 1-3 strands of floss, the just right for when I'm using 4-6 or the BIG for when the kids are embroidering. This project was so fast and easy our five year old proudly made them!

The felt watermelon banner didn't work out so well. I found this great watermelon fabric at the local Joann's! I am much happier with this one.

Instead of ribbon to hold the thread spool, I used elastic for this one. I like the look of the elastic better.

Hand embroidery seems to be easier for me to pick up lately. With a new baby, larger projects don't seem feasible. This great project was so fun to make and now I love using it every day! It holds everything I need for the hand embroidery projects I've been working on. The one pictured is a circle from the WildOlive 50 states stitching club. I'm doing circles instead of stars- the stars seemed to challenging for me right now.

This is one of my all time favorite sock knitting bags. I had just a few scraps of these fabrics left, so I pieced them together. I make mine from approximately 18" x 11" instead of her measurements- this works out best for my socks.
