Needlework Update - June, 2016

Good morning,

Here we are again with another month's worth of needlework projects that have been finished. 

This one is a new original design. The raspberry sherbet colored baby sweater and hat set features ice cream cone buttons and an ice cream cone crocheted toy.  This is in size 12 months.
Two more afghans were completed this month, too.  The one above is a flower garden of summer flower colors and...
...this one features lavender pink flowers.
This tote is just the right size for a small tablet.  This one sold immediately, but I plan to make more to restock the shop.
It was also a month of hats...
...and more hats!

Some of these have already gone to their new owners and others are in the shop.
This toilet tissue cover was a special order.  The image is a little dark, but that is a decorative kitty button in the center of the flower. 
And, I made several more.  

 Some are still available in the shop.
 This pin cushion is topped by a happy dragon...
...and here's one with a cute little frog. 
Here's another with a happy bumble bee.
Of course, this one is the standard bearer.  :)
Several turtles hatched this month.  The one above is a custom order for a flat turtle to fit into the side of a back pack.  The colors were also specified to match the back pack.
This larger, taller turtle version is great as a well behaved office or dorm room pet.
Of course, my turtles come in all colors.

I made several small mug rugs...
 ...that immediately found happy homes.
 I then made four sets of these larger versions that will accommodate a drink and a snack.  All four of the burgundy and pink sets sold immediately.
 So, I just made a few more of the large version with scalloped edges and put them in the shop.
 And, finally for this month, I knit this pair of finger-less gloves as a custom order for someone with sore hands.  I'm delighted they fit perfectly!

That's it for the needlework items that have flowed from the needles and hooks this month.  I'm finding these updates fun to review months later to see what I was making and when.  I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy seeing all the beautiful things you make, photograph, bake, and grow!

All the best,

Original and Traditional 
Hand Crafted Designs
