A Few Finishes!

Just a quick post to record the fact that sometimes my projects actually do get finished.  This one had a deadline, a baby shower at work.   A baby kimono jacket and matching socks from Dream in Color sock weight yarn in color "Happy":

A baby sampler for great-nephew born in Canyon, Texas earlier this year; design by Just Nan:
And finally got Olga in her frame; design by Plum Street Samplers (look like a cat we might know...hint hint she'd in the header):

My poor Susan Rambo sampler is languishing in the to-do basket while I am momentarily distracted by the siren's call of the yarn stash.  Happy Fall, Y'all!


  1. What great finishes! I love the baby things -- so cute and little! Love the baby sampler too. And Olga -- so adorable! I need to stitch that one for MIa! lol! She definitely looks more like one of yours though.

  2. Kris great finishes - glad I got to see those darling socks and stitched items in person. The frame for Olga is awesome. Enjoy the fall knitting frenzy - Mel

  3. I just love baby things!! They and your stitching are beautiful!!

  4. I am amazed at the patience and skill of folks who can make beautiful things like these. I love those socks!

  5. Olga is fab - what a wonderful frame! Based on the pics of your cats I can see why you fell in love with the design!

  6. what fabulous finishes!! it is so rewarding to give hand crafted gifts!!
