A Few Finishes

2 scarves I made for my sister's birthday, last month. Her present arrived this week (took almost 3 weeks!), so I can finally show them here. I was suppose to make her a pair of socks with this yarn, but for some reason the yarn caused me nothing but trouble, so I crocheted these scarves instead. Pattern was found on ravelry, here. For one, I used a whole skein, the other I made shorter and added some fringe.

Close-up. Quick scarf. I made these two in an evening and a day. Will definitely use this pattern again.

I also made her this knitted basket.

The scarves are in the grey bag and I filled up the rest of the basket with fabric. Happy Birthday Sarah!

This week, I crocheted a quick sweater for my niece. This will be for her 3rd birthday, this July. Still deciding whether I am going to buy a dress or knit one, since I still have 3 skeins of the yarn left. You can find the pattern for the cardigan, here.

I finished quilting and got the binding on this quilt last night. Just needs a wash and then it will be ready for the etsy shop.

I stitched-in-the-ditch along the rows and then added free-motioned flowers over the whole quilt. 

Next up... a post about some projects I want to begin. Maybe one of them will be my Friday Night Sew-In project, this Friday. Have you signed up yet? No? Then you should go here and join in the fun tomorrow night. There's already over 160 signed up.
