I know that it has been a long time since I updated my blog. I'm really sorry for this.

I'm going to bring you up to date on a few things that I made. I'll post my fair entries later. I already feel like I have been at the computer forever.

I love this one.
First, this is one of my granddaughters, Samantha. She is a sweetheart and so cute! (can't tell I'm proud, can you?)

I made the dress. The top part is knitted with Bernat Cottontots in Strawberry. It's Summerlinn by Alice Schnebly and can be found on her web site here.
I sewed the material on the bottom. It took me a while to find just the right material.

I joined a Mystery Stole Knit Along. We get one clue each week for six weeks. This is the first clue all knitted up.

I'm using a cotton yarn and brown breads. It is prettier in person and is so soft.

This Modern Cabled Baby Bib by gibsongirl is a Ravelry pattern.

The only reason that I made it is because I like the pattern.
I thought that I would enter it is next years fair.

Sorry that the picture is bad.

This doily is Square Doily with Rose Center by American Thread Company. You can find the pattern here.

I have wanted to make this for a few years now and I finally just did it. I love it. I really love the older patterns. They have so much character.

This crocheted doily is Donna by Patricia Kristoffersen.

The pattern can be found in Leisure Arts #3818, Doilies with a Twist. It is made with Omega Beige thread. I was to use a size 6 hook but realized 3/4 of the way through that I grabbed a smaller size 9. I was not frogging it!

I am planning on entering it in the 2009 county fair. Just hope I don't misplace it.

Now I'm going to try to get you all caught up on some of the knitted dishcloths that I made.
(I really need to update my blog more often.)

This one is the July dishcloth for the Monthly-Dishcloth-Knit-Along.
I messed it up. I was watching Monk and not paying attention. After I got it off the needles, I realized that I missed some rows.

This is the August Monthly-Dishcloth-Knit-Along. It's a Rose Bud Leaf. I know the picture isn't very good and doesn't do the cloth justice at all.

It was made with Sugar and Cream Red on size 7 needles.

This cute little number is 'Two Piece Swim Suit'. It is so cute. I can remember the days that I wore one.

It is a Rachel van Schie pattern can be found on Ravelry here or on her Yahoo group here. She is very talented.

I used a size 6 needles. Really wish I would have used size 3 instead. I'm not sure on the yarn. It was in my left over stash.

This dishcloth is a Ravelry pattern called 'May You Find Peace In Your Heart'. You can find it here. I used size 6 needles.
I'm not sure what the yarn is. It was a left over in my stash.

Some of us are old enough to remember the Peace Sign. I love the pattern.

This School House is the September Monthly-Dishcloth-Knit-Along. It is so cute.

I'm going to give it to one of my granddaughters' to give to her teacher for Christmas. I'm going to make another dishcloth and a set of hotpad also.

This one is the August Mid-Month with Monthly-Dishcloth-Knit-Along. It's called Elvish Leaves. Kelly designed the pattern and did a great job.

The yarn is Sugar 'N Cream Violet Veil Ombree. It was some I had left over in my stash. I do love the colors. I used size 7 needles.

This pattern is called Diamonds and you can find the pattern on Ravelry here. I knitted it on size 8 needles. It is a real simple pattern.
I love this pattern and have been waiting for the right yarn to come along. The yarn is Peaches and Creme Sunrise. I got it in a Grab Bag that I ordered. I love the colors.
