The Hawthorne socks in Laurelhurst are finished!  They were set aside to knit the kids snuggle dolls but now they are on my feet!  I love the color!

She gave me the 'look' when I took her picture!  "Sure, you have time for cameras but not for me!"

  3. Soo lovely! I love the colorway of the socks as well. But I'm really swooning over that purple quilt. That's a beauty! I love that your kitty came to you in the storm and then sort of just holed herself up with you to be near if she couldn't be held. But hey, a crafter has to craft ;)


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

 I used my circle template to draw in all the arcs I need to turn the border on this quilt  into a scalloped edge.   I put a piece of...
