My blogging frequency has really dropped off this year. I’ve found myself busy with several other projects and thought it was time I shared a few of them.
In December I knit these two little guys. They are a fun little pattern from Mochimochi Land and were perfect for what we needed them for at Christmas.
I had a lot of fun making two swaddle babies using a pattern from BeccaMarie Designs – Swaddle Babies Tutorial. I started with an 18 inch square half-square triangle of flannel, sewed it in half with a gap and then sewed the body area, stuffed the body and sealed it, and then used a decorative stitch to seal the hole in the blanket area. I used a medium plate for the pattern for the head. And I put a button on the back and a button hole on the corner so that the swaddle could be buttoned closed. They turned out great.
The adorable little turtles were crocheted by my sister.
And I had my sister cut out some stencils in some freezer paper with her fancy cutter machine so I could paint up some shirts.
And the whole time I was working on all these projects we were also painting one of the rooms in our house and I was working on one other really big project, Ooh Shemo: Officially Announcing….
We’ve got a lot more projects going on at our house now. And couldn’t be happier. More well rested, yes. But not happier.
