Sarah's Simple Tunic is Finished!

I am so happy to reveal my latest completed knitting project!

This lovely baby tunic pattern was shared by my friend
Una at Great Bags of Wool
and I thought I'd give it a try.

Well, my knitting expertise is limited, so I ended up making this little top three times,
ripping it out and trying again and again,
 until Una came to my rescue and I actually finished it!

As soon as it was blocked I took it to my daughter's house to see if it
would fit.

My little granddaughter is never thrilled to have her clothes changed.

I was just happy it fit over her head.

But she thought about it for a moment

and although reluctantly at first, decided maybe it was ok.

After everyone told her how pretty it looked on her

she was happy!

Now if I can figure out how to make it in the next size....

Until next time~

Thank you Blue Finch!

Don't you just love a surprise?

Even when you kind of think you know something may be coming.

Well I received a most lovely surprise this weekend from
my friend Rachel at Blue Finch.

I met Rachel at Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party and after seeing
her beautiful jewelry creations quickly became a follower.

Well....this VERY generous lady promised a gift to ALL her new followers!!

And this is it!!!

This lovely pair of earrings arrived in a gift box attached to
a blue finch card.  Now how awesome is that!

Thank you again, Rachel.
And if you haven't yet visited Blue Finch, please do.
You will be delighted!

Until next time ~
