Off the Needles and a Bit More

I've just about wrapped up the baby knitting for a while.  There are lots of other big-people UFOs waiting for some attention!


I used the leftovers from Max's baseball sweater to make this matching hat, and



these booties are waiting to be sent off to a friend's newest grand daughter. The birth sampler is finished and ready to be framed.  No photos here because DD sometimes reads my blog. So, UFOs, here I come!



Meanwhile, Stella finally opened her eyes for Opa!  It's hard to believe she's already more than one week old.

Here's big brother concentrating on his favorite food
.

It was a big week in Chicago for this little lady.  Sophia (pink shirt) started school, had a birthday and was so thrilled to finally have a girl cousin. She looks happy, doesn't she?



And out in the garden, the black-eyed Susan vine is on its way to our upstairs bedroom!  That's all for now.  We're off to work in the church choir library before heading over to help DD. Bye! But, before you head off, stop by Patchwork Times and see what others have on their needles today!

Great photos of the kiddos.

I've never seen a Black-eyed Susan vine. Did you start it from a seedling or a seed?
