fall goodies for little ones

detail of a monogram hat in wool-ease chunky: bluebell. the trim is a cocoa-color, and though you can't tell in the photo, it is a zig-zag type picot edging.

the full hat. miss h refused to model.

she refused to model this as well:

candy-stripe poncho in assorted yarns with a scallop edging and pom-pom cord trim.

detail from the poncho.

the cutest boot and sweater set:
detail of the double-button detail on the sweater. crocheted in bernat cotton tots: strawberry and trimmed in lion suede: taupe.
another view
and the set together. i hope baby d loves it!

and finally....i have made carseat blankets for a few people and finally one of them sent in a photo. here is a detail of the boy's version, showing the braid trim.

same shot for the girlie version.

and the blankets in action! too bad the cute twins aren't featured in the shot!

pink dream

i needed a fun project for myself this week, so i whipped up this pink felted clutch. it is worked in the round, so there are no seams anywhere! i guess, technically, it's worked "in the oval" since i wanted it to stay slim, but still have some width to it. the yarn is patons classic merino wool in "That's Pink!". i love that color name! :)

Fat Quarters for Fat Tuesday!

i know, i know, it's friday, but it was a perfect heading. anyway, i mailed mine out on tuesday as part of a FQ swap with some gals from mormonchic. participants swapped 2 fat quarters and chocolate. isn't the chocolate just the perfect touch? i don't quilt, but i DO use FQs as purse linings for crocheted purses, and i have a feeling sewing is in my future.

here are the fabrics and goodies i received: (she was nice enough to include some suckers for the kiddies -- thanks, dawn!)

first of all, i LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabrics! i confess, i saw the polka dots at my local quilt shop and fell in love with it. really it's uncanny how well she got into my head! the browns, aqua, and tangerine colors are really jiving with me right now, i LOVE them, and actually sent fabrics in the same colors off to my partner! did i mention i LOVE them? Thank-you! i think the brown fabric calls for an aqua bag with tangerine ribbon or maybe even a silk blossom....the dots will be beautiful lining a brown bag. i'm wanting to branch out in my crochet endeavors also, so maybe i can come up with another fun way to utilize fabric in my work...appliques? maybe. but i need to think on it and perhaps surf for inspiration.

here is some of what i have been working on this week:

this is the "lymon" sweater for a friend...she's unsure whether it's a boy or girl, hence the 2 button sets! yeah, it's customizable AND interactive. i'm so hip on the new technology.

here are the baby uggs! i LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

uggs with hat -- the cutest hat ever! the earflaps can tie up on the top with the strings...
