Needlework Update - April, 2015

Good morning,

It has been a very busy month creating with knitting needles and crochet hooks!

Above is a large afghan blanket in my original raised circle design that was a custom order and has been delivered...
 This similar red, white, and blue blanket with a red border will be in the shop...
...as will be this one in peach and turquoise.  
 This tunic sweater was also a special order.  The yarn is incredibly soft and cuddly!
These little detergent or hand sanitizer bottle covers were also special orders...
...and I made two more in black and white and...
...raspberry and cream for the shop.
This was also a month of making more hats and caps to restock the shop and for special orders.

So pretty for Spring!
One little baby "painted" turtle also hatched this month.

So, that is what has flowed from the knitting needles and crochet hooks since the last Needlework Update.  It is such great fun to design and create new things and I hope you enjoy seeing what is new each month.  If you are interested in reserving items before they appear in the shop in early May, please let me know and I'll reserve them for you before they are available to the public.

As always, I love seeing what other bloggers are designing and creating, too!  What a talented group of needlework, photo, garden, culinary, and other artists we have out here in cyberspace!  I have links to many of their blogs in my right side-bar.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the best,

Original and Traditional Hand Crafted Designs

If we're voting, I vote for the last blanket/throw, it's so restful to the eyes. :)

I love your afghans! I bet you really used a lot of yarn for those! You've designed such a nice cheery pattern!
