Relief spelled I-G-O-T-I-T-A-L-L-D-O-N-E-I-N-T-I-M-E.

This banner came together the night before the baby shower. I used wool felt, a cotton velvet ribbon, and Heather Bailey scraps from the quilt my mum made for the baby. The mother-of-pearl buttons are antiques my gram (who will be 90 this year) inherited from her mother and grandmother.

Mum's quilt:

My cousin looks like he's examining the finer points of the stitching, doesn't he? I've seen him look at x-rays of my teeth this way. Actually, he's reading the cool label my mother sewed into the corner of the quilt. She does this for all of her pieces.

Here is my bigger FO, the little cardigan I designed for Adeline. Those of you who wander the blogosphere will understand that I owe a big debt to Nona for inspiring this one:

I think they liked it.

Your sweater turned out fantastically! I love what you did with the colors and the asymmetrical design. Isn't it a fun stitch pattern :-)

Just saw your adorable sweater on Ravelry, and clicked on the link to read more about it on your blog. It's a great design (please publish!), and the color choice was inspired!
