A Couple Recent Projects

 Here are a few projects that have been finished in the last couple of months.

A baby blanket for our newest niece.  The colors are showing up dark on my monitor. But it was really more of a mellow salmon pink with a sage green stripe, the ruffle was a creamy vanilla.

This is what you do when you need to cover a logo..... Needlefelt a new one!

And another baby blanket for our dear friend and karate sensei's new baby boy. The rainbow stripes are in order of Central Illinois Shotokan Karate Association's belts. Another friend found a karate bear at the local Build a Bear Workshop and we paired them together for a Karate themed gift.

Happy Creating!!!

SAY, It has been really quiet around here lately. What's been going on??

  Summer! Grass is growing, ever needing mowing, weeds need pulling, children swimming, running, and jumping, and some getting sewn up. Special anniversaries. Llamas dustbathing then snoozing in the sun. Birthdays and fiber washing. Lambs are growing, some going off to their new homes. Board games and days off for special projects. And the "Kernal" (above), all the while wandering to and from her little swimming pool, calling to her grazing, scratching flock of chickens warning of unseen dangers. Ahh, Summer!

Happy 60th Mom and Dad!!! You're awesome!!
