Odd combination, huh? First: Beauty.
Here are the other 2 rotating prints we have. (The first one I posted here ) These ones are hanging up in our playroom. They are in the merati (I think that's what they called it) frames while the one in K's room is in the birch frame. I am hoping to get the squirrel print someday to go with these.
The clutter on my blog has finally gotten to me! So don't mind as I redo,remove and clear up around here. There are some things I don't even know why I put them up here :p I mean who needs to know my post-preggo weight loss really? Besides I lost all that about 6 months ago. Tee hee. Then theres the 'followers' section on my blog. I noticed a lot of people had this on their blog so I just went ahead and added it but then I started thinking about it and really why do I need that on here? For me personally it feels like it's saying 'Hey look at me, I think I am important!'. I love everyone who even bothers to see my silly little blog,and feel honored anyone would even want to check it out <3 but I can admire all of them from my dashboard on here. I don't know, maybe I'm being silly and I don't feel this way about other people that have it on their blogs, but for me it just bugs me and feels like a vanity thing, kwim?
Along with that going on is the usual knitting. I knitted some toasties the other day. They knit up fast (just a couple hours) and are so warm amd cute! I'm starting my Odessa hat to match them soon. Can you believe that in my 3 years of knitting those toasties were the first thing I ever made for myself?!
I have so much I want to knit for the girls mostly but a couple things for myself too. I guess I should add on the buttons and finish weaving in the ends on C's birthday sheep yoke neck cardigan. but I have other important things to get done to...
check out this wool felt and fabric for C's birthday crown (fabric is for covering the elastic in the back of the crown)!! Very Spring looking,no? Can you believe in only 2 months she will be 1?!
Then this spring fabric to make the table cloth for the birthday table
K's birthday crown was featured on Gossamer Thistledown blog last month :) Thats where I get the most lovely wool felt from. Every time I look at those pics I am reminded to change the embroidery thread color around the crown. The white still feels to bright and contrasting to me. Any thoughts on what color to change it to?
I plan on posting a tutorial on how I make my birthday crowns as I make C's. I didn't find a pattern I really liked so I made my own. Be on the lookout for that!
