How did the weather know that I finished Isabela's scarf last night?? We woke up to a cold, wet, and windy morning, one perfect for the yo-baby accessory. She was thrilled to snuggle and pose. I need to find the perfect yarn color to do one for Eleni.
As you mommies know, there is no doing something for one and not the others.....the boys however don't care, and Juliana has about 17 different scarves started all laying around her room like landmines, knitting needles attached. She just goes from one to the other like a granny with short term memory loss. I mean that in the best way. I am a lucky person if thats all it takes to keep her happy. Speaking of happy...
I found these cute buttons and adorable little Christmas-y print to put with mine for Eleni's apron. Aren't they all so happy together?! Can't wait to get started on that, I'm thinking it'll be the ruffley-er sort. I love translating their personalities and individuality into frocks and such that I make for them.
Last but not least, I finished my first Bohemian quilt top with a new pattern I designed and have packed it up and sent to Gina for her to work her long-arm magic. I can't wait to get it back and feel all the bumpy fun of the quilting stiches over my work. I'll share a full shot once it's back. It's going in a local gallery show that I participate in every Holiday season. I usually do paintings, but thought this would be an interesting departure from the norm.
So much fun sewing lately, and I need to remind myself to be keeping up with my other work on some giftware projects. Just got word that I'll have these fun holiday designs on wrap, boxes and giftbags for Holiday 2007. Yippee!
