More sewing

I have been a crafty mad-woman lately. After a summer of very little sewing and creating, I have hit the ground running this fall. I attribute this burst of creative energy to the extra time I now have. My big kids are in school all day (4th & 2nd grade) and Oli is in preschool for 3 mornings each week. Baby Clio is not here anymore so time formerly spent gazing into a drooling/grinning/cooing little face now must be filled. In the past week I’ve made:
*2 birthday number shirts (with names embroidered on back) for gifts
*new skirt for Mojo
*matching skirt for her best friend
*2 t-shirt & matching underwear sets size 4/5T
*a size 1 tie dye long sleeve shirt
*2 aqua camo shirts for Oli & Mojo
*an aqua camo raglan embroidered with a dino

Oh….and I finished knitting 2 hats. I really AM a crafting mad woman.

Fall knitting

Fall knitting……one of my favorite reads is and today, Amanda wrote about how fall means knitting to her. Me too. I love the feel of wool in my hands as the air turns colder. I love the softness and warmth. What I’ve been working on lately…..hats. This pilot hat pattern from little turtle knits is my current favorite. I made one for baby Clio to send with her to her new home and keep her warm through the fall. And then I made another (larger) from the remains of the ball. Now I’m making another out of delicious navy blue merino/alpaca/silk yarn for Oli.
