Our Summer Garden

I am back from a wonderfully long and very relaxing vacation.  I was able to spend time with my entire family and have many memories that I will always treasure.

I returned home last Tuesday and am still finding my way back to where I left off four weeks ago.  Am getting there little by little…

I started “Our Summer Garden” for Patience and Amelia Thimble before I left, did some knitting while away, and was able to finish it up within this last week at home.

Just like my flower garden this sister set is in full bloom and oh, so colorful.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Patience’s sweater and Amelia Thimble’s soft and cuddly dress/hat are knit with lace weight mohair silk yarn.  The embroidery coordinates with the colors in the cotton print used for the dress.

I pulled out some of my vintage paper flowers which were the perfect color of blue and attached a pink silk ribbon bow for a sweet little bouquet.

While on vacation my sister let me raid her bead stash… so fun… Patience has a bracelet from my scavenging.  Thanks, sis!  You’re the best!
