County Fair

I entered three afghans in to the county fair this year. Thought it might be kind of fun. My starghan that you can see in below posts received a 2nd place red ribbon. The multi-colored one received a 1st place blue ribbon and the green and cream striped won a 1st place blue ribbon and actually won the special award of Best Afghan! I was so excited! My friend from work called me to tell me earlier in the week so I could not wait to get to the fair and take some pictures!
This was my first time entering and really did not know what to expect. The pictures are not that great, but the lighting in there was not the best.

Braven's Baptism

My newest nephew, Braven Mark, was baptised over Labor Day weekend. He's such a cutie! I made him this set when he was born, he's now 6 months old. I never thought it would actually fit him! There is a hat that has a baseball bill on it, booties, a sweater and an afghan. I was so hot in the church that day that he only wore it for pictures, but was really neat. Oh, the buttons are actually little fish. I thought they were cute. Yes, that is me in the picture with him. I was his god mother. I was about 20 weeks pregnant there and he is pretty heavy for me!

Melia's Sweater Poncho Hat and Afghan

My friend, Sherri is adopting a baby girl from China. She leaves next month to go and pick her up. I made Sherri the sweater poncho and hat for her birthday and I think it will look cute on Melia. I am sure I am not spelling her name correctly, but I think it is close, and then the baby afghan was for the baby shower. She will be about 8 months old when she gets to her new home. We can't wait to welcome her here.

Dot's Ditty Bag

I made one of these in Simply Soft, but did not get the picture taken of it yet. This one is out of Sugar and Cream and I added a flower. Will be a Christmas gift, but don't know who yet.
