Late IHSW report

I apologize profusely for the lateness of my IHSW progress. I at least took the pictures on Sunday but couldn't find the time to upload until today :(

So….First-I finished the first baby blanket for the set of twins that we will be blessing my next store neighbors in December.

The mom chose Cranberry and Beige for the little girl. The little boy will have Blue and Chocolate for his colors. I am tossing around the idea of using the same pattern for both kids but to be frank…I wasn't a huge fan of this pattern so I am on the fence deciding on the pattern. After I finished this one…I cast on for a blanket for my brother. Ever since I made blankets for the births of his children he has been begging for one. The only problem is he wants one in a specific color scheme that is large enough for him ---He's 6'2" tall. I decided that I am going to do it in spurts as I value my sanity.

I also finished the Ink Circles Christmas ornament from the 2013 ornament issue of Just Cross Stitch.

16ct AIDA
Random DMC floss in colors of my choosing
It was a relatively quick stitch and I love Her designs at Ink Circles. This love translated into my starting the Summer Mandala which is shown below:
Summer Mandala - Ink Circles
Started 10/20/2013
18 ct. AIDA and recommended DMC Floss
I also finished a few receiving blankets for any future children that enter my world either my own or those that bless my friends.
I apologize for the darkness of the picture as it was a rather gloomy day here in Cincinnati on Sunday. 

Goals for the upcoming week are to finish the black outline on the Summer Mandala and hopefully finish another ornament. Happy Stitching Everyone!
