Rainy weather, and new applique

Hello to all!! I have not posted because, really been busy and just a little down. It is raining soooo much around here! News: I finished a house warming gift for my mother to give to a coworker. i did not take pictures as i finished it at her house, but i do have a few work in progress pictures: Total items: 2 knitted dishcloths, 4 knitted coasters, 1 butterfly, 1 heart, 2 voltive candles. Placed in a small wicker basket.
I tested this square: Veronica Rose by Melissa Green
Also tested this square: High Tech Square by Melissa Green
I made these while teaching my SIL to crochet  and my son took them over as coasters and a table mat: Little Star Dishcloth
And finally, another applique pattern i created: A little elephant! :) Still a work in progress, need to add a few things, this was a quick picture to show a few friends and the person the pattern was intended for. I am making a baby blanket and will be applying this baby blue elephant and a baby pink elephant i have made to it. Hope to…
