First, an update on my neighbor. He is HOME! He is bruised and swollen, but looks much better than I would have guessed and sounds like himself. Attending the funeral of his friend will be difficult, but he felt he had to be there today. After today he can recuperate at home, hopefully without set backs or side effects.
Back in April I
I tracked down an internet source and ordered enough yarn for both sleeves (in case color matching was an issue, I thought two slightly 'off' sleeves would be better than one) and finally, the never ending sweater is done!
The other finished project that I am happy to say is done is a baby quilt for a friend of my younger son. The baby shower is a few weeks away, but so much is going on this month I was hoping to get it off my mind before this long holiday weekend. I succeeded! It is bright. These are not the colors of her baby's nursery, but I figure one of the grandmas is probably taking care of that. Between car travels, nap times at other homes and floor play, babies can always use extra blankets and quilts. The baby's parents are dear to me and I think they will be happy with this exuberant quilt called Animal Party.
The back of the quilt is the same bright green with small dots of many colors as the binding. Some of the squares are cut from Animal Party, a printed panel from Robert Kaufman fabrics.
