Needlework Update - August 2014

Good morning,

The summer has flown as has the past month since my last Needlework Update.  Above is a custom order red sweater that is so bright and happy as is the lady who will be wearing it.
This gray sweater is my same original knit design with a turtleneck.  It is hand knit of a gorgeous wool blend yarn and is available in the shop. 
It is always fun to have some smaller projects between the large ones. Above is a candy basket that can be used for fancy soaps or anything else. 
I also made several more chemo caps to...
 ...restock the shop.

What are you making and doing this summer?  I just love seeing all of the beautiful items everyone is making, baking, growing!

All the very best,

Hand Crafted Original and Traditional Designs

I'm working on squares for the little baby's eye operation, so her mother can raffle a blanket. After that, I hope to finish a plain double crochet cardigan for 1st granddaughter, and embellish it with hearts and lolipops, etc. :)

I like that red sweater! Nice job there.
