Wow - didn't realize I hadn't put anything up here in almost a year!! We moved again over the summer (hopefully the last time for a very long time) and just have been busy. Here are some of the things I did last year...okay, just looked at my last post - it was exactly a year ago that I had last updated...wild.
|This was the first corkscrew scarf I tried...it ended up going to Nathaniel's teacher for a Christmas gift :)|
|Combination of a couple of patterns I found on pinterest...craft fair items...they didn't sell this year, maybe next year :)|
|My sister Sarah's Christmas gift last year...made a bunch of these. Graduation gift for a niece and gifts for my five sister-in-laws.|
|Another baby blanket set...Simply soft green and the white has some sparkle in it. Same pattern as the rainbow one I did last year...which got sent to a new great-niece last week :)|
|The apple hat plus a few other baby hats I did this fall for the craft fair (the pastel one sold)...Shadow insisted on being in the picture.|
I didn't get much scrapbooking done this year...and most of the ones I did (all of Joshua's put the New Year's one) were ones that I had started when we lived in Fort Jones and just hadn't finished before THAT move. Hopefully soon I'll get back to that!
|Some more crayon caddies for the craft fair and gifts|
|This was Grace's Easter dress...she really wanted me to make her an Easter dress...which got me back to sewing. I learned new things on this dress which made it fun :) She loves it!|
|After making her Easter dress, I finally got around to girlifying some of the boys' old shorts that she wears...the rainbow twill I'd picked up on clearance years ago for scrapbooking was perfect for it!|
|I made her a quick purple velvet skirt out of some bit of fabric someone gave me a few years ago...one of her favorite colors.|
|Grace got invited to several birthday parties last spring and we had fun making cards for her friends.|
|Here are the two nightgowns that I made Grace for her birthday - along with matching ones for her dolls.|
