The baby blankets are sweet, but I know from personal experience how much your aunt will appreciate the prayer shawl. I was always cold when I was going through chemo. Having a prayer shawl will not only bless her but will also help her stay warm. You might also consider some fingerless gloves and a warm hat if you're looking for gifts for her. And if food becomes hard for her to tolerate, I suggest trying hominy grits. The lye which is used to make hominy is a strong base and helps to balance the caustic acids in some treatments. Have added your aunt to my prayer list.

I love your color combos in the baby afghans!  I think ripple afghans always turn out nicely!

Also, how wonderful to make an afghan for your aunt from you grandma's stash..it will add more positive vibes for your aunt to be strong through this difficult time!

Good suggestions, kbrison...also, I did not know that about hominy...

Cooking is crafty so I'm not going too far off topic when I ask "what the heck are grits?" Is it like cornmeal/polenta?

I'm working on a ripple baby blanket at the moment,my neighbours due a little girl this weekend so I need to stop slacking and get hooking!

mmmm...sort of, made from corn....It is eaten quite a bit in our Southern states; cream of wheat is eaten more in the Northeast but it is NOT the same...ick...I love grits...we cook it with loads of butter, then fry it in bacon grease, and spoon gravy on top...not exactly the healthiest dish, but so yummy! Grin

Cheese grits are my favorite...the above PLUS cheese..Grin

There have been some really productive people recently.  I'm impressed with all the crochet!  That must be pretty hot for summer crafting, but they all look great.

A couple of my own to share - apologies since it's more doll clothes.  I'm not going to say I'm in a rut, but I'm certainly getting repetitive.

A quick muslin to test a pattern:

The same pattern adjusted and tested with an old sheet

I NEVER get tired of seeing your doll clothes!  The little plaid dress is so adorable!  The belt really gives it a bit of pop!

Loving all the color combos on the yarn goodies (even the sports teams...not a sports person). It is always so hard for me to pair colors together on my own. I have been knitting away, well knitting a bit anyways on a sweater. Love the history of the yarn for the prayer scarf.

And yum to some cheese grits! I like plain butter and salt too but cheese is where it's at. I am originally from Ohio but have been in the south going on 9 years and have become accustomed to being able to order and/or buy grits. The past few years I have traveled quite a bit for work and whenever I venture from the south I want some grits and at times it's been hard to find them.

So here are some of the patches I made.

I really like sewing by hand so this kind of work is very meditative for me and I enjoy doing it. Also my stash of clothes that need mending and repairs is smaller now Smiley
