THiS WeeK

I finished a purple cardi for my GD. This one has a lovely collar & a fancy "rib" & is a nice easy pattern to knit. When stretched it shows off the "lace" feature of this ribbed design. The jacket  is called "Apple" & it's also in the book "Roses and Posies" I showed earlier here & here.
I used 3 cute cat buttons I had in my "button" stash.
My gorgeous GD looks very pretty in it too!...  said by a very proud grandma...lol

Remember the bib I stitched at FNSI... well I added the animal last Sunday.
Hope you can see what it is?
Yep... a WHaLe...

Been working away on a little hand embroidery at night.
These will turn into a Christmas gift... or perhaps two?
Two wonderful designs by my friend Michelle Ridgway. Visit Michelle's blog HERE.

Today I'm off to a "BiGGesT MorNinG TeA" 
fund raiser with lots of lovely friends.
I hope you enjoy your day too.
