4th of July sewing

   Here are a couple of dresses I'm sewing for 2 of my granddaughters. 4th of July is right around the corner! I'm almost finished with the Butterick just needs a little hand sewing on the lining (and a little pressing from the cat sleeping on it).
   The pillow case dress is for my 18 month old granddaughter who is a little peanut. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to use that jumbo ric rac since she's so small. I might change it to the large.

Here's a little sweater I knit for my daughter about 20 years ago. I'm really feeling the urge to pick up my needles a little more often, especially now that I have 2 more little grands on the way. A grandson will be here in October and a (?) in November. I can't wait!

I took a day off of work just to rest my shoulder up bit. I decided to catch up on my DVR'd programs while I finish up a scarf I started.  It's made out of specialty ribbon yarn and I hate working with it. lol The colors are gorgeous, although I don't think my phone shows it very well.
