I mailed out my dear friend's package last Friday but took a couple of quick pics before it went out. (Last time I am posting pics of this project, I swear!)
The baby's goodies
Fiona's (big sister) goodies
K fell in love with Fiona's presents and asked if I could take pictures of her wearing them for 'just a minute'. How could I deny that sweetness? When I said yes, she ran into her closet and came back out with a skirt and top over her pjs and announced she was ready.
Mermaid purse - complete with a mermaid doll
K also let me know that because of Fiona's love of mermaids, she now loves them, too. She wants Fiona to show her some real mermaids when we visit her sometime. I love her imagination so much!!
I honestly feel like I didn't do enough and I really wanted to do more but right now I need to move on to C's upcoming birthday so maybe I can do more after that...
February sweater for an April girl
Speaking of C's birthday, birthday present preparations are in full swing.
I am almost done with her sweater, I just need to put two more buttons on and it's done.
Twirly dress for my girly-girl
I thought I would sew a birthday dress for her this year. You may remember this fabric I bought last spring, well, it's just been sitting on my shelf waiting to be made into something. C's birthday seemed like a good time to use it. I am making it a size 3T so she can grow into it and I added a lot of length to the bottom. I dress my girls (and myself) pretty modestly so (to me) extra length is always a bonus.
I am thinking of making her a matching bonnet out of this fabric,too, as long as I have the time.
K's gnomey, gnomey, gnome
Finally, I finished up a 'quick fix project'. Last autumn, when I knit up K's gnomey gnome hat, I was disappointed in how short the neck part was. It was sized to fit up to age 8 but it barely touched the top of her shoulders. She loved it so I didn't want to rip it out so I thought I would add on to it. Last night I was finally able to do that. Since I was adding to the bottom of it I knew there would be an obvious seam so I thought I would add stripes, instead, to make it look a little bit more like I meant to do that. I think it came out ok enough. Next time I will just make the hat the next size up, though.
What Spring projects are you working on? I can't believe it's March already!
