So many people I know are having (or have had) baby girls in the past year! There’s Tess, Sophia, Lily and soon to be 3 more! So 6 little girls to make pretty things for. I’m keeping busy. This past weekend, I finished a matching sweater for little Lily (I just adore that name). I made her a hat way before she was even born back in October. It’s still a bit too big for her, but she should be able to wear the sweater and the hat at the same time.
I also whipped up a little flannel quilt for playing on the floor and cuddling in. It’s pretty darn pink.
I just hope that it’s not too much pink. It’s so hard to resist pretty pink for little girls, especially with all the great fabrics out there! Here’s a little glimpse at my flannel stash. Mmmm, so warm and cuddly! Next up, another quilt out of the fabric on the right.
I finished a bag I was working on, from the book Seams to Me, by Anna Maria Horner. Love that book! I’m happy with the bag, but should have used the heavyweight fusing the pattern called for. I was just being lazy… So next time, more structure. I’m also working on another secret project from that book. I can’t show it until I give it away, it’s a gift for a special person!
Looks like I’ll have to post the pics from that project later, connection speed has been pathetically slow, plus I have some sewing and knitting to do! And I should probably consider making some dinner. Oh – and I need to tell you all about the books I recently got! So much inspiration now, too much to put in just one post.
