Nearly a finish!

I didn't realise it's been so long since I posted anything. I've almost finished the birth sampler for Faith. All I have left is her date of birth and add some beads. I changed the pattern a little in this. Originally it was supposed to be silver metallic swirls but I didn't think they stood out much so I left one or two and replaced the others with 2 different shades of DMC Satin instead.

While I've been waiting to find out her date of birth I started stitching on a UFO. I don't have a pic yet though. This one is Feathers & Friends by Butternut Road. There's a long story behind it but to cut it short - it belongs to my mother and I'm stitching it for her.

I've also been making progress on my knitting. Here's a pic of my first four squares.

I've also finished one other square since and I've nearly finished the 6th. So far they've been relatively straight forward with just knit and purl. The worst one was the white with the blue diamond which I had to have help with joining in a new colour. Going good though :)
