Babette Update #3

Babette is coming along very nicely here in the family room. Elizabeth is determined to have this crochet project completed before her first day of college which is September 2. She has the strip she is working on currently and one more strip to make before working the border and then being finished! What an accomplishment this will be for the summer.

Here's a look at her progress to date...

Babette Update #3
As she is working each section, Elizabeth is taking care not to have the same color touching on any two blocks. It's a good thing she chose so many different colors! She also has figured out which color will be the first round of the border. It will have to be one that she has not used on the outer round of any border block!

Whew! That's just too much thinking for me!

There will be quite a bit of leftover yarn from this project, of which I plan to use bits for an afghan I am planning. Something much more simple and old fashioned than this Babette though! As soon as I have a little bit more progress made on mine, I will share it. Right now, there's not too much to see!

And don't forget my 400th Post Summer Giveaway underway right now. There is still time to sign up!

Happy Stitching!

  • Wow Mary Grace!
    She's really coming along...I'm still working on mine...put it aside to start a new project for my little grand daughter! You would just love this...it's a little crocheted doll, called Girlie Girl, a pattern from Crochet World, June 2009. She's got braided hair, a hat and a purse. Then you put all kinds of hair accessories all over her...little pony tail rubber bands on her legs, hair clips all over her hair. I have her head, body, and legs done...now I am working on her arms. I still have to crochet her dress and purse! It's coming along!
    Have a great week!
    Merry :)

  • I was wondering how your DD was doing on her Babette quilt. It's gorgeous.
