As Promised - A Pair of Violettes!

This past weekend, I finished up a pair of Violettes, the circular needle "book" that I created some months ago for knitters. At the time of the show, one of my new friends from Sock Summit ordered one, and a regular cat show customer (one of several who also knit) ordered another. The second gal asked me to coordinate with her Mavis bag and Rose straight needle case, and that was something of a miracle to pull off - but I still had enough of the fabrics to do it! (I really wasn't sure, at the cat show, if I'd be able to or not...had to come home and check the stash, doncha know?)

So without further ado:

Two Violettes!

The first, for my new Sock Summit pal is a neat retro-dots fabric:

I loved the orange and aqua dots on the brown fabric the second I saw it...making this one was a challenge - as those colors can be tough to match, but it was also one of the most fun projects I've had to date. I LOVE the way this one turned out!

Then, the cat show gal's African-inspired print:

Still a bit of a challenge, as I didn't have a lot of this fabric and coordinates left, but it turned out very nicely.

I hope both gals will be delighted with their new Nana Sadie Rose creations...let me know if I can whip up something equally wonderful for you, okay?

E does love it, totally! (Not that this doesn't keep her from craving the other one, too!)

Gorgeous indeed! You do such beautiful work Sallee.

I am also noting that decrease in pounds at the top of the page, you goooooo girl!

Mr. Cheddar says the soup may match but he's still not a veggie guy. LOL

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
