Baby blanket finished

I finally finished the round baby blanket I was working on. I really like the pattern, except for the rippling just before the border. If I make this again, I will change the number of stitches so it lies flat. This is for a baby at church who is due to arrive in September. She will have 2 brothers, so we know she will be a princess!!
This is a purchased pattern from this eBay store

Bible study squares

I am doing an online Bible study with a wonderful group of women. We are studying "Women of the Bible." We have crocheted squares to go with each woman we study. I am going to assemble mine into a prayer shawl. I chose the color peach since Eve is the first woman and she ate the forbidden fruit. We don't know what the fruit was, but many believe it was an apple. But I am going to think it was a peach! Here are the first 3 Eve squares I made.

The ends are not tucked in yet. The square at the top is called butterfly garden. The 2 on the bottom are (l to r) seed stitch and rib stitch. I think these 3 squares say a lot about Eve. I will post next week's squares when I finish them. This Bible study is wonderful!

More sewing

I made this dress for E. who will start kindergarten next month. I made shorts for her to wear under the dress since she loves to be on the monkey bars! I have more things to make for her. It is such fun to sew clothes for "back to school."
I also made some more pillow cases, but have to get the pictures uploaded.

Finished another prayer shawl

I finished this prayer shawl for Linda who has some health issues. It's amazing what the different lighting will do to the colors. The first picture is a more accurate one of the color. I used Lion Brand Homespun and a size L hook.
