Sophie is officially too big for my ottoman...and almost too big for my twin sized bed!

It's looking great. It's always amazing watching yarn projects grow. If I could get my cross stitch to grow that fast, I'd embroider a whole wall. lol

Thanks!!! I totally agree...Sophie is starting to become the closest I have to an instant gratification project :P

(and after whipping through all of those blocks, I am having to remind myself that it's okay that I'm not getting anything done fast! seriously...I had to have that talk the other day)

Your Sophie looks great!! I am so jealous, I have been drooling over that one for a while. I even toyed with the idea for making it for my infant daughter but settled on a quicker blanket to make since I had so many projects in the air.

Beautiful blanket! Reminds me I need to finish the blanket I'm working on. Also adorable Adipose! Looks great for cuddling under said blanket.

I don't blame you for passing on that idea, AuntTink! Quick projects are always good, especially for that age and with so many other things going on! Hopefully you are able to stitch your own Sophie, too!

I am truly surprised at how quickly she's stitching up (probably helps that I'm blogging along the way so I'm working on it on a weekly basis :P)

And don't be surprised if Adipose and Fourth photobomb more!!! I think most of the wide shots are going to be taken on my couch...because Sophie is getting to be a nice size already...and I still have a ways to go!

Looking great. I need to make a few Adipose... or just lay off the soda.
