I am really behind and trying to throw together some last minute gifts for my girls from the Root Children for this weekend. I don't know how I managed to completely forget about the Root Children's appearance day this year. I think I just got a bit too excited crafting for C's birthday.
I am keeping it pretty simple starting with some cute little knitted snails. I plan on making one for both of my girls. They are really fast and easy to make. I just have to add a leaf to the bottom of the one pictured above and knit up another one just like it quick. I have learned that my girls like to have the same exact thing as each other so I will knit the other one out of the same yarn.
I found the pattern for the snails on Linda's blog and I plan on knitting up a couple of her eggs for the girls, too. If you haven't checked out her blog before, please do! It's so uplifting and they are such an inspiring family.
A very random WIP and a much less fun project - paperwork, paperwork and more paperwork but oh so worth it!!!!! I am finishing up the packet I received from K's future school, lots of question and things to sign, but I am not complaining. This is our dream finally coming true!! On a side note - I have to point out the 'First Aid Treatment' section. I actually jumped up and down when I read that.
I have only had a couple of chances to work some more on one of K's 'new bedroom special surprises', but have made some progress nonetheless. I love the way she writes the 'K' in her name!
Hedgehog theme, anyone?
I think C has a theme to her birthday without evening trying - hedgehogs!! I am finishing up a dress that matches her birthday dress for her 'C baby'. I think this will bring a big smile to her face.
All right, seeing all of this reminds me I need to get back to work in my little elf shop!! Can't wait to see what you are all up to! Wishing you all a fun St. Patrick's Day.
