I have been busy this last week. In fact I have been so busy that I haven't been posting much or commenting on other posts. I hope you will forgive me. I have caught a few moments here and there to read what everyone else has been up too. Sometime soon I plan on commenting on everyone's lovely work.
I have made a monster. He is a wonky little guy, but lovable. I plan on making a few more of these soft fleece hugable monsters.
I have fused fabric for a book I'm making. The hand dyed fabric is going into a canvas learning book for my little guy. I will post more pictures when I get it made.
I have been crocheting a bit. This is going to be a scarf after I get it finished. I love these colors and the slubby yarn.
I also want to show a bit of the card I made for my niece. I shimmers a lot more than the pictures show. She liked the card and the money I included even more.
I will try to post more soon and show my progress on some projects and some other things that I have been up to.
Jodi Ohl was talking about making letters on her blog so I thought that I would give it a try. http://sweetrepeats.blogspot.com
I made a couple of letters last night for two of my boys. I was just playing while watching a movie. Here are my results:
Making these letters is fun and I am really looking forward to making some more.
Today is my son's eleventh birthday. He is growing into a young man. It seems like such a short time ago that we brought him home from the hospital. I have been busy getting ready for Christmas and Birthdays all week. I finished my last choir dress on Monday afternoon. That was a massive chore that took a lot of time the last month, but now I get to concentrate on making Christmas presents. I have three different projects going each one for multiple children. I can't wait until I can show them off. Now I am off to celebrate a birthday and enjoy time with my family.
I thought that I would write a quick post. I have been keeping busy hemming, crocheting, and making birthday cards. I can't share pictures of what I have been working on yet though. I will share pictures of the cards that I am making after the recipients get them. For some reason my family has been blessed with many December birthdays. My niece turned 11 yesterday, my daughter turns 18 on Sunday, and my son and another niece have birthdays next week. That is only a part of the December birth month. I always am really busy with shopping and planning and hosting birthday parties this month. Needless to say, but I always go broke with all the presents too. You can't disappoint the children so I make it work. I do love the Christmas season and everything that goes along with it. I think that the highlights are watching the kids open their presents and going to the Christmas church services.
After I get the rest of the dresses hemmed, I can start to make presents for my family. Then I will have some more pictures to share and fun things to talk about. Right now I will share a picture of a little purse that I made from an old pair of jeans. I had just started learning to free motion stitch and I put one of my practice pieces on the front of the purse.
