A celebratory cup of tea ...

... and a cookie, of course!





























After the giant cats of last week, these are a dainty change of pace.

The un-named baby blanket is complete. It measures 30 inches x 40 inches. Cascade 220 Superwash purchased online from Wool-tyme in Ottawa. (Great service!)  4.5 mm needles. I started this project in late March with a pretty vague idea of where I wanted to end up. I am unusually happy with the end result.


And for anyone who might be curious, here's what the back of those blocks looks like. Those embroidery stitches get swallowed up in the worsted weight wool, and it is surprisingly neat back there.



It is time to move on to a new project, and it's going to be fun!!
