It’s Summer!

I’m going to be taking some random days off this summer while business is slow to do some exploring and re-acquainting myself with the area. Tomorrow is one such day ~ still trying to decide just where I’m going, but my daughter is visiting and we’re planning a girls’ day out. I’ll try to keep my wanderings to the slowest days at the shop which are currently Tuesdays & Thursdays.

Baby Blankets Finished

Big sigh of relief I’ve finally finished the two baby blankets I’ve been working on for what seems far too long. A young lady who was in the shop today was impressed with the Blue Hearts blankie but said she really liked the more simple blue blankie with purple trim made from Beverly A. Qualheim’s 5-Day Newborn Blankie pattern. I used Peaches & Creme cotton for both, Baby Blue and Delft Blue for the hearts one and Light Blue with Deep Purple trim for the other.

And, ta-da (drum roll, please) here they are!

My new project {shhhh! we won’t talk about all those other WIPs right now} is a Hairpin Lace sampler. It is destined to eventually be a placemat, maybe even a placemat pattern, but for right now it is a “teaching tool” for my Introduction to Hairpin Lace class.
