BBD inspired design and husband knit his first hat!

the title of the post covers it
have been remiss on posting
summertime has me still knitting on previous posts sweater

but completed a BBD inspired design
got the idea from the joyuex noel pattern book
just a mix of ideas to come up with a birth sampler
also took some patterns i.e. the bunnies from a prairie schooler pattern


















it was accurately and beautifully fabric framed by my friend Sandie alias quilter extraordinaire
my sewing skills are not exact----Sandie makes things perfect and even!

Hubby has knitted his first hat all i can say is "wow when are you making me one?  :-)


he is already working on hat #2
til next time happy stitches and brilliant creations

  4. Hi Corinna,
    I really like the new look on your blog. I love that BBD stitch sewn into a quilted piece. A little jealous of your husband's knitting. I wish I could knit. Take care.

  11. Wow, you're a crafty pair! Love your sampler and the way it's finished off, and love the hat your husband made and is working on. I''d be afraid to knit something like that!

  12. What? Your hubby knitted those hats? OMG AWESOME. I've been trying to get my husband to knit for years but no luck. (It may have something to do with the fact that I want him to knit for me, like a work mule or something. Just think about it - I could get TWICE AS MUCH done if I had an extra pair of hands. lolol)

  19. That's your hubby's first hat??? Not some garter stitch item with a seam down the back, ha, ha. You are one talented couple! Your cross stitch is always pretty, but the fabric "frame" makes it even prettier. I need a friend like yours!
