I like to knit dishcloths between larger knitting projects. They are great to take on longer car rides and to work on at seminars. I have some friends who like plain white ones so they can put them in a hot, bleach load of laundry. I prefer the colors, but the color washes out pretty fast.
This is an anniversary card for Leslie and Anders who will celebrate 11 years of marriage in August. The chart is Spring Flower Cart from Janlynn.com. The fabric I mounted this on is one of the fabrics used on the tables at the wedding.

I purchased fabric for these pillowcase dresses quite some time ago, anticipating Sonja and Julia getting old enough to wear dresses (walking not crawling), so they will get them when they come later this month. The larger blue one is for Iris who is 8. It has a “design element” at the top ribbon casing, since I had miscalculated and cut the main fabric too short. It’s probably just as well, because I barely had enough of the blue to make the ruffle for the smaller dress. Imagine my thrill at being able to find ribbon with ladybugs on it!

Emelie and Matthias celebrate their third wedding anniversary this month. This is the anniversary card I just finished for them. The hydrangea is from Amanda Gregory. She offered it in two colorways (pink and mauve), but of course, I wanted green, because Emelie had a green hydrangea wedding bouquet. I think my change in colors was successful.
