WIPocalypse #4 ~ baby sampler & Octopus!

It seems like I just did a WIPocalypse post, but I think that's because I was so LATE last time. :p  I've been cruising right along on my projects, and for once I'm sticking to my goals for the month.  We'll see how long that lasts!

First up, I finished the baby sampler for my nephew!  There's text too, but I didn't take a picture to keep things a little bit private. :)  This is a really cute pattern called Oh Baby by Lizzie Kate.  It includes about 15 different motifs and an alphabet, and you just mix and match them to make a customized sampler.  I love having lots of options, and I was able to pick out four of the more boy-like motifs for the sampler.

And I finished part two of Octopus Treasure Cave!  I still have to bead three corners for part one, but I think I'll save that for later and go back to Spring Knotgarden for a bit.

I took some pictures outside, but the camera was being stupid and didn't show a preview on the screen for some reason, so this one came out weird.  The fabric looks good so I'm posting it anyway. :p

And here's a view of everything so far.  Even though I didn't use a flash, it's still kind of washed out.  It was bright outside today!

And finally, this is all of part two.  The jellyfish on the right is still my favorite!

Hope everyone else made some good progress in the last month too! :)
