Needlework Update - July, 2016

Good morning,

The days go by so very quickly and suddenly a month has passed and it's time for another Needlework Update. 

I have finished two sweaters this time, both for children and both with special designs.  Above is a Toy Shelf sweater that is just loaded with decorative toy buttons.  How fun!
This aqua sweater features a truck that is also a pocket. Both of these sweaters are in child size 4 to 5 and are available in our shop.
 This lavender pink lap or baby blanket is also in the shop.
 I made two of these aqua and cream baby blankets...
 with matching turtle toys.  One was a custom order, the other is in the shop.
  These two ladies and...
 ...this fellow were also custom orders.
 Of course, a turtle hatched this month and...
 ...this happy little star also appeared.
 These are brightly colored luggage identifiers that are so very handy to find your luggage in an airport or cruise terminal.  They make a great bon voyage gift or door prize.
 I developed this newsboy cap design this month, too.  It's a ribbed crochet that you can form to wear however you wish for comfort and style.  It also can be used as a chemo cap.
 It was time to restock the shop for more cloche/chemo caps, too.
 This is a special order hat for, yep, Henry!
  Charlie is Henry's brother and wanted a hat, too!
  I had so much fun making those that I made this one and...
 ...this one for the shop.  If you're not Bob or Cathy, you can order a hat with your name or initials (up to eight letters) in any color you wish by writing to me to place your order.
 I made a number of hats in a variety of sizes for the shop.

 

 This "big hair" hat is in the shop, too.
 Pin cushions!  I made a few more to restock the shop.
 This one should be easy to find in your sewing room!
 I also made a few more toilet tissue toppers to restock the shop for those that were recently sold.



 And, finally, another set of mug rugs/snack mats.

Wow, it was a busy month again!

You have been so productive! All of it is nice, but I loved the toy shelf sweater! What a brilliant idea.
