Newton's Nook Designs Post ~ Newton SPINS over YARN!

Hello.  Today it is my turn to be featured on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog.  When I first saw Newton kitty on the BIG ball of yarn from the newly released 'Newton Unwinds' set, I immediately pictured it on a spinner card - so that is what I made for you today:

I created the background of yarn balls in all the colors of the rainbow using images from Newton Unwinds and the previously released 'Newton's Antics' set.  I colored Newton's HUGE yarn ball to match this pretty variegated yarn I purchased at Michaels (Loops & Threads Charisma Baby yarn, in the color 'Toy Train', you can kind of see it to the right of the card in the picture) that I am going to use for a prayer blanket for my Ty Baby (he is having a lump removed on Friday, we are praying that is all that will need to be done and he can heal afterwards without further treatment; any prayers or positive thoughts you can offer on his behalf are appreciated more than you know!).  Since it common in crochet to finish things off with a scalloped shell stitched border, I used my shell shaped Martha Stewart edger punch to highlight the sentiment at the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thank you for any prayers offered up on our Ty Baby's behalf.
