Show and Tell

It's been awhile since I posted anything crafty, so here are some of my latest projects.

A tea cozy that I made for my mom from this book.
The picture along side the pattern was so enticing that I just had to make it...but somehow it just didn't turn out quite as beautiful as I anticipated. In fact, it has also doubled as a silly toque in our house. Do you still want it, Mom?
I'm not sure if you remember this post, but finally, after all this time I got around to finishing the rocking chair. I'm on a bit of an embroidery streak these days.
On the go, I've got Simone's quilted pillow. I wanted to personalize it for her, along with some pretty flowers in pink, red and blue.
Hope you are all enjoying a lovely Monday morning. It's raining out here, but it hasn't affected my bright mood. Last night was the first time in 9 1/2 months that I didn't have to get out of my bed! Simone slept an entire 11 hours and only woke up once to kibitz for 15 minutes. After a few nights of painful sleep training, our little stinker is pulling the long shut eye. I'm so proud of her and I'm ecstatic to begin recovering from sleep deprivation. Hooray for sleep!

I love your tea cozy, great use of colours and so delicate (as beautiful as the one in the book). Your embroideries are great as always, so glad you are crafting again.

If Mom doesn't, I do!! (I've never been called shy...)

That green really adds to the rocking chair, and well done on the sleep training. Snoooooze away.

The tea cosy is great. I'll step in line behind Maureen if Mum is not keen.
