Embroidery on the Road and 2 UFOs

Knitting on the road I can do, but embroidery I can't, so I usually bring those projects along on trips to work on in the evenings. First, I finished the July Noah's Art BOM; then, I worked on Kathy's CQ heart and half of my own. I won't post Kathy's heart for a bit though because I just dropped them both into the mail yesterday and want her to see hers first.
August Noah's Ark
I pieced this last spring and just embellished it before sending it on to Kathy so she can work her magic on it.
Half of My Heart
This week I've been on a real "finishing streak," attacking stuff that has been languishing for a bit, waiting oh so patiently for me to do the sewing together part. Here's a sweater for Sophia that will be part of her birthday package. I can't believe she'll be turning one in a couple of weeks!Velvet Touch Sweater
The other finished project is a pair of slippers for David from a pattern called "Bunny Hoppers" in Kathleen Taylor's book, Knit One, Felt Too. They, too, have awaited sewing together, my least favorite task and one that I'm very good at putting off....the born procrastinator, you know. Here's how they looked before felting. It actually took 3 tries to felt them properly.Before Felting
Finally Finished!
They've been waiting to be sewed since June, so I sure hope they still fit!

Hey Judy! Your elephants for Lynette's BOM look great!! And what cute little bunny slippers!!! I'd have to put them on a bear, though, as we don't have kids and the dog would get them dirty in no time flat! Tee! Hee! Hee! WOW! How rude that you're running the furnace in SUMMER!! I think it's rude enough that it's cold in WINTER here! Mind you, we kind of skipped our last summer, the weather just sort of drifted from spring to autumn while us summer types were waiting for our hot weather and accompanying burst of energy - didn't come!!! Hope you keep warm - some grown up size bunny slippers perhaps! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

What lovely things Judy - doesn't it feel good when you finish them off. I especially love the slippers, do you make them in size 7.5?
