Flowers and Doll Blanket

Here is my Red Peony in full bloom from my friend Sara.  She has passed but every time I see it I think of her.  It had 13 blooms this year.

My Yellow Iris and my 2 colored Purple Iris.

My latest doll blanket for the Giving Doll.

Doll Blankets and Flowers

Here are 2 more doll blankets for the Giving Doll.  This is the corner to corner pattern.

Close up of the stitches.

This is a Granny corner to corner.  Very interesting to do.

Our garden.

Red Peony from an old friend Sara.

This flower just showed up last year and I do not know what it is but I like it.

Does anyone know if this plant is a flower or a weed?  It just showed up this spring.

Doll Blanket and Cat

Here is my latest doll blanket for the Giving Doll.  It is a new pattern which is a corner to corner pattern.  This is made with thin baby yarn I was given by a friend.  I am loving this pattern for a change from the granny squares I have been making.  

Close up of the stitches.

This is one of the neighbor cats sitting in my birdbath and he is just looking around.  There is a rock in the center of the birdbath so the little birds can stand on it and get a drink. All of the cats jump up into my birdbath to get a drink, even though the neighbor who feeds them has water out for them.

3 more Doll Blankets

Here are the last 3 doll blankets for the Giving Doll.  A friend gave me a bag of baby yarn and this is what I did with some of it.  This is a mint green and cream blanket worked as a large Granny Square.

Close up of the color and stitches.  I like to put a row of singles aroud the edge of these blankets.

This one is made with 2 strands of very fine baby yarn worked at the same time.

This is a new Wobbly V-Stitch pattern I found.  I worked it in smaller squares and ladder stitched them together.  Then a row of doubles around the whole thing to make it big enough.  I love this one even if I hate to sew blocks together.  It is the same green and cream as the first one.

Just a close up of the stitches.
