Babette is Growing!

My goodness ... this is so quick! I know a few people are following progress on my Babette Blanket, so here is the latest. I can't believe how I can really see what I achieve in a short time - not like hand-quilting or applique.

I didn't get any sewing done yesterday, but had a lovely day relaxing with my crochet. The colours I have chosen are bright, but I don't think quite as bright as they are showing here. The wool, I could not be happier - so soft and the drape is beautiful.

Happy day everyone!

How lovely Lurline. It is nice to do something that gives that quick gratification, and I love all your colors. I'm just doing a dishcloth now from cotton yarn, and sometimes I just stop and scrunch it to feel the softness. Nothing fancy, just what I started when I was trying to teach my granddaughter.

I think it looks beautiful!!! Sometimes it is nice to have a change from quilting! I think everyone needs a few differnt hobbies, it keeps life interesting!
