Baby/Toddler blanket in progress

I'm making a baby/toddler blanket for a friend's grandchild for Yule/Christmas.  It's going to be red/green striped, and outlined in white.  It's just a simple double stitch.  I want to see if I can write "Happy Yule," on it, but we'll see how it turns out.  Here it is so far:

Half-Double Crochet Practice

Again, the top picture was horizontal and looked nice, but when I uploaded it, it somehow turned itself.  Sorry.

Scrapbooking fun!

I'm not sure why some of them turned on their side.  They were the correct way, and in the process of uploaded, flipped themselves.

I didn't get a picture right away, so it's a bit worn looking. I redecorated this to this:

Mini Togy

I finished this in December.  I had it sitting around forever half finished, when I finally said to heck with it, and finished it.  It was hanging on the fridge but it kept falling down and I didn't want it to get ruined so I put it in a drawer.  I got it because it looks like my baby Togy.

Completed Small Cross-stitch Christmas Gift

I completed this in late November for a Christmas gift.  I gave it to my friend Jo, who lives overseas.  It didn't take long to make and I liked the result.

Completed Project for Mother-in-Law

I completed my project for my MIL!  I also did another small cross-stitch piece but I forgot to take a picture of it before I wrapped it up for my friend for Christmas.  It's not mailed off and I have half a mind to open it and take a picture, then rewrap it.  That may be a lot of work for such a tiny piece, but it was a cute little piece!

I finished it up and it took it out of the hoop and put it in the frame.  This is me holding the finished product.

I put the frame down on the desk and stepped back to take another picture.

After that it was time to wrap the frame in layers of bubble wrap and then put it into a bubble wrap envelope. The birthday present is quite late.

As you can see, I have stars over the address of both my MIL and myself.  Before I could put this into the mail, my MIL became very ill and was hospitalized.  They didn't know if she would make it, so it was very important to me to take that to her when we went to the hospital.  I gave it to her and she loved it.  I think it meant a lot, I hope it did.  Now if only my fingers and wrists would quit acting up then I could get some more projects done...
