For newborn babies in my community, I knit newborn hats, sew burp cloths and bibs.  These are a sample of some of the bibs that I've made recently.  You can find several free patterns online that are very simple to make.

I use velcro for the fastenings.

A couple of grandchildren are posing with the bibs.

This is a good way to use up some of my stash.

Some Special Hats

June's mom asked me to knit this hat for her.  Such a cute pixie one.

Other granddaughters saw the hat and they wanted one also. Then I really started knitting.  I let each one pick out their color.

That same day I was going to Hobby Lobby  and the girls went with me.  These girls picked out yarn with all those lovely colors.

 Last but not least, Eloise decided she wanted a hat also.  Here is hers.

Manor House Quilt Center

Here I have the center of the manor quilt all put together.  This is a stashbuster quilt as I did not purchase any of the fabrics.  It did not make much of a dent in my stash though.

Manor Quilt Progress

I've been slowly moving along on my Manor quilt.  Sometimes that's the way things work.  Moving along means getting done, even if it's slow.
Since there are so many kinds of blocks, doing one set at a time makes it easier.

I've actually finished all the blocks for the center even though I don't have pics of all of them.  Maybe this week I can get the center put together.

Carol's Quilt

If you like kimonos, here are a few with oriental fabrics.

I did cherry blossoms on this quilt.

More Baby Knits

Asher needed a new hat. And here it is.

You can really pull on the ties on this one.

And Melanie is modeling a sweater and hat I knit for a new friend of hers.

I do like pixie bonnets.

 And then there's the sweater with the shawl collar.

 Her friend will have to grow into this one.
