Needlework Updaate - July, 2014

Good morning,

It's time for the monthly Needlework Update once again.  I've worked on more sweaters this time so have fewer items.  Above is a Just Peachy sweater in my own design.  It has been sold and has gone to live in Texas.  
This is a wool blend yarn gray sweater that has gone to live in Ohio.  This is just gorgeous soft yarn. 
These are six tiny crocheted party favor baskets.  They are also perfect to hold fancy soaps in the bathroom.
Here's something a little different for the shop.  She is a Granny Doll that little girls can hug when grandma can't be with them.  So cute!
I also made a couple of...
...highly textured roll brim hats.  Warmth in color and style.  :)
This sweet little green turtle is now living in Ohio...
 ...these three octopus found homes in New York and Hawaii...
 ...and this little octopus went all the way to Malaysia.
I also restocked the shop with...
 ...a few more...
...cloche hats that may be used as chemo caps.  They are designed to fit snugly below the hairline or the brim may be folded up.  Warm and comfy!

What have you been doing during the month of July?  I so enjoy seeing your needlework and sewing projects, gardens, and digital images. 

All the very best,
Lois

Thank you, everyone, for your very kind comments. I have just listed a gray wool sweater in the shop. It is the same pattern stitch as the peach sweater in this post. We are headed back to Ohio as I type this!
