Saved !

Whew!  They finally made it.  I wish they could talk and tell me about their journey but  am so glad they arrived so I can finish my project.  This photo also shows their true color a bit better; there's a definite green in amongst the blue.  I've also learned that alpaca, at least this yarn, doesn't have the best stitch definition, but it sure is nice and soft.

Here's a teaser from block five.  Chooks, I guess that's what they're called in Australia? You'll have to wait a bit to see this one finished at the end of the month along with block four.

When I was looking in my stash for a specific color of DMC thread, which I never did find, I discovered these little shoes sans the hearts.  They are size 3-6 mos. and it dawned on me that it was now or never for Stella.  Thanks to Kathyb"s perfect timing with her heart post, I whipped these off.  Haven't heard whether they fit or not though.

Max and I enjoyed a story together until he got distracted by his sister.

They are great friends.....for now.  I had fun feeding Stella her first cereal.  But now we're back home and it's time to get those needles busy.

Stella's little shoes are adorable! I made two pair of those when our church choir director had twins. Their's had the rainbow for Noah's Ark.

Hearts are so perfect for little Miss Stella.

The blue alpaca yarn is very pretty. And I know how soft it it's one of my favorite yarns too!
