Whooo can't stop embroidering towels?

I just finished another owl towel, this one in the nick of time to give to a special teacher at tomorrow's kindergarten graduation. (Owls are the school mascot.)

Tree of Life

My mother made me this "Tree of Life" afghan for Easter. The photos don't adequately show the color; it's a lovely, soft tone of yellow (my favorite color). I'm amazed by the intricacy and the fact that Mom knitted this challenging pattern in about a month.

Happy Mothers Day, Mom, and thank you for teaching me how to create beautiful things.

A dress for O

I took this photo at the end of the schoolday, and I'm afraid my little diva isn't as enthralled with Mama's creations as she used to be. After I made this dress, she said, "I actually don't need any more clothes, Mom." But it was fun to work with the darling fabric--a Japanese interpretation of the Wizard of Oz, featuring a blonde Dorothy.
