New Project

I'm working on a Santa hat for Baby E, but can't post pictures. My computer has conked out, and while a friend of my sister's attempts to revive it, I'm completely pictureless. What a bummer.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can, but there is no telling when that will be.

Lovely Linen

I finished the linen brick stitch, and absolutely love it! It's new owner picked it up yesterday. It was custom made for her, and is approximately 60"x65". It is the perfect complement to the burgundy afghan I made her a couple years ago. Here it is.

I like this afghan so much, if I had the time, I'd make one for our bed! Right now, my big UFO (unfinished object) is the braided afghan for our bed. I need to just crack down and finish it. There are so many other projects that catch my eye, and attention though.
I found another UFO in my yarn stash, and it's the perfect afghan for a friend who is expecting a baby. I started the afghan just because I thought it would be cute, so I've been working on finishing that. I'll have pictures soon. I also will be making a lavender afghan for my husbands new niece. She's my new niece too, but I didn't want to cause any confusion, or possibly imply anything about my sister :) It's been a really long time since I've made a solid lavender (if ever?), so I'm really excited about making it.
I also am working on repairing my neighbor's spread for her bed. Her great-great grandmother (I think) made it, and over the years, some of the thread has torn. She has given me the honor of repairing it. It is absolutely beautiful, and I'm working on finding the perfect thread to repair it with. I'll post pictures next time.
I'll also be making Baby E a Santa hat in a week and a half. I have to wait until the 16th to start it. You'll see why soon. I also need to make her some mittens, so her little fingers stay warm.
It's a busy busy time!
