Beatrix Potter Cross Stitch

 A framed counted cross stitch picture of Beatrix Potter characters for the baby's room.
 The picture does not do it justice -- the mat is purple -- hard to tell here.

Lotta Jansdotter Quilt

 I just love LJ's fabrics -- modern & clean.  This quilt measures about 36"x45" -- just the right size for a baby.

Tippy's Table Runner

 Another friend is moving away from this area -- so I made her a table runner!  Hard to go wrong with blue, yellow & white -- it's a winning combo of colors.
 This is the first I've made pointy ends & I like it.  It's always fun to try something new.

 Simple, straight-line machine quilting to finish it off.

Star Blankie

This is something new for me to crochet -- a star-shaped blankie for a baby -- measures about 40" thru the middle.  It's for my first grandbaby girl!  Due early August.  I'm looking forward to meeting her!

I used extra thick, acrylic yarn -- the texture feels very soft; the colors match the baby's room -- light lilac, light gray/taupe & white.
