FRIDAY HAPPENINGS

oh it is friday, one of my husbands favorite day !
mine too, i get to see him, have him all to myself for 2 days...yiippee. i have finished up some "hand work" that has been nagging me to block.


these are baby receiving blankets that 45 x 45 inches wide, hemmed stitched then a beautiful crochet edge put around the entire blanket. i like to give a blanket and burp rag with each blanket.



seems odd to call these  "burp rags" they are beautiful crochet 
baby items. will have to come up with a better name.
perhaps baby burp towel.


anyways, i love doing them, they are fairly mindless once the pattern is imbedded in the ole brain.
i picked up several more of these blankets and burp rags/towels
in rigby last august.
you can read all about the town of rigby here
from camille


i also blocked this shawl.


quince pattern
tosh yarn
easy easy pattern
i have made 2 of these this past summer.


edging is a wonder lacy leaf pattern.
think i will be making another in a plum color.

well it has finally cooled off here in northern colorado.
cool and cloudy today,
i'm in heaven.
will be working on finishing a quilt that has to travel to Pennsylvania with me at the end of the month.
what are your plans?
i would love to read all about them.
 i may even go get a pumpkin latte this afternoon.....heehee.

How about a shoulder cloth Eileen. They are lovely. What a great gift. Can't wait to see your quilt and hear about your trip to Pennsylvania. I haven't been to Lancaster Penn. in years.

Oh, your shawl is absolutely beautiful. I love it. The yarn is gorgeous.

I laugh at the phrase, "burp rags". Today's young mommy's probably won't call them that. Your shawl is beautiful. Glad you got a few things done.
