Knitting in July!

Since, my pictures want to land at the beginning of my blog, I'm starting with the last creation. I just finished this lovely doll for my three-year-old granddaughter. Since she is only three I didn't make her extra outfits or necklace. But she is very beautiful! 

             Here's what else I've been knitting this past month or so. Some of these things are my own patterns, so that makes it a bit more of a struggle. They turned out nice anyway.

I made Sarah this cool pillow! She just turned five! 

I had a fun time making this Perry the Platypus! I didn't have a pattern, so I made it up as I went along. He turned out okay, but it still has problems. I think he's pretty cool, even with all the problems. 

I embroidered this lovely rose for my sister on this bag. It was a nice simple and fast project, because I knitted the bag last year. I think it turned out pretty. 

These gloves were a nice portable knit. but they seamed to be endless and I was happy to be done with them. Ben likes them and they are a nice fit. 
I made this awesome bag with part of the leftover yarn from the nativity I made. The Quilt Barn will be putting it on display! 
This bag turned out great! I was worried about it while I was making it, but I really do like it !

     The past couple of month has been busy. My mom and dad both spent some time in the hospital. We had a family reunion and other family events. And a good friend of ours died. So, I am so very thankful for my knitting which helps me as I go through all the ups and downs of life. But more than that I'm thankful to my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ! That is what really gets me through the hard times.
