Stuff I have done the last week or so

This is Claudia's Prayer cloth. I made it in Tunisian with a shell border for her to take with her to her treatments so that she would know I was praying for her to get well.
This is the beginning of a Tunisian blanket that will include the race car number and the driver's name when finished. It is for one of our local Nascar Whelen Weekly Series Driver's here in Erie, Colorado at Colorado National Speedway. I will post more pictures when I get further along. This photo was taken the other day, I have more of the checkered flag done for the top panel now. I have to graph out the driver's name and his number and then work on that part. It will have the checkered flag at the bottom of the blanket too. This is a round ripple that is in progress. It is already kind of big, but I ran out of the yarn and Hobby Lobby hasn't gotten any more in stock yet. It is Bernat Camo Yarn in Purple and Green. So far I have used 6 skeins of this yarn.

This is a blanket that I had started and thought it was too skinny, it is shells and cables. In Pink and Purple. So, I gave it to Trixie for her bed to keep her warm. She likes to go under the covers. She is my Pookie Bear.
This is my lip balm holder, it is attached to my keys. I just made this with a scrap of Sugar and Cream cotton left over from some project.
This is the start of a baby blanket that I am making as an order for a friend. We are actually trading now, so no $$$ involved. Bummer for that. LOL. Actually I am getting something really cool out of the deal. The stitch is one that I kind of made up.
This is my version of Monica Zenberg's little boy blue round ripple. The link can be found here. I usedy own color scheme and also made it much larger than her version. I like my baby blankets to last a while for the children. There is my little doggie Trixie. She loves to hide in the blankets.

These are the dishcloths I made for Claudia. I did my own pattern for them, so she is the first to receive an original from me. It was a swap for this group. I also sent her a prayer cloth. She has that on her blog.

Hi y'all. I have to add some photos of some things I have been making for the last week or so. Some are WIP's but most are finished. Enjoy. I am also working on a baby blanket for a racer friend of mine. I wanted to have it done by this Saturday, but that is not going to happen. I still have alot to do on it.
