OFW and Double Ta Da!

Here are a couple of flowers that I made last week, and are on their way to Australia.  I didn’t have any fabrics like these in my stash, but a co-worker was happy to help me out.


And speaking of co-workers, I’ve finished the baby quilt!  IMG_0257

This was inspired from the theme that the mama has chosen to decorate her nursery.  I was approached and asked to make a ‘branded’ quilt.  Another co-worker provided me with a T-shirt to use for the logo.


The hst’s are actually siggy blocks, and we got some really cute ones.  There are drawings, quotes, and poems in addition to congratulatory comments.


Just showing the back to prove that it really is finished, because this is one of my OPAM’s for May!


The shower is next week, so I hope it gets a good reception.

I also finished the afghan that I have been working on for the past several months.  I love crocheting in the car, but this was getting too big to travel.


Now I get to start something new before we go away this weekend!

Yesterday, I received a lovely squishy from Irene.  It was my mug rug from my swap group.  I chose patriotic this cycle, and this is how Irene sees patriotic.


I think I’ll take it to work and hang it on my cube wall.  thanks Irene!



I think that’s enough for tonight.  On to a new project tomorrow.

Be kind, and keep the residents of Moore, OK in your prayers.

One of my friends lives in Moore, and they had damage to their home, but were okay.. the 9 yr old daughter of her good friend, however, perished in the storm.. please keep that family in particular in your prayers. :( I love your projects, Sunny, and I esp love the colors and pattern of the afghan! xo
