Kitting Liberty Tree

Doing an Olympic challenge with one of my yahoo groups (2muchXS).  The aim is to start project at the opening of the Olympics and try your best to finish it before they end.  I have decided to do designs that sort of go with the Olympic theme.  I have chosen America and Dream, both are word trees by M Designs.  I was leafing through some cross stitch magazines and found yet another word tree called Liberty (also by M Designs).  I just kitted it up.  I have decided to use 28 ct Jobelan in Babbling Brook by Welcome Stitchery Inc and Fugue Blue (2245) silk floss by Vikki Clayton.  What do you think?

Finished Morning Wizard

This is Coffee is Magic by Dragon Dreams.  I only have Night Wizard left of the set of 4.  I used white fuzzy stuff for the beard and bunny slippers.

Crochet finishes

As everyone knows I'm a huge Eagles fan.  I work with a couple of other Eagles fans also.  One is a friend of mine and his wife had a daughter a couple of years ago.  I made her a baby blanket and his daughter loves it.  Well fast forward to this year and he tells me I have to make another blanket.  OK, he says hopefully he is having a boy because he wants Eagles colors.  Two weeks later he tells me I have to make 2 blankets!  TWINS!  Well, as luck has it, they were boys and I decided to make them in Eagles colors but just slightly different.  So one has green white and black, the other is green white and grey.  I had left over yarn and made hats to match :)
