What can I say? I am completely blown away... whatever would I do without you?! Thank you so very much for all of your help, thoughts and suggestions on my last post. I have so many ideas right now in my head that I don't even know where to begin, all thanks to you! I am quite a bit behind on responses right now, we are preparing for my Mother in law's arrival this week for C's birthday. Please know that every e-mail and comment mean so much to me and I will be catching up soon!
I mentioned my idea of sewing the girls clothes to K and she said she would like it a lot, then she asked what I would be sewing, when I told her dresses her face lit up and she said, "Oh, dresses?! I especially would love dresses! Please make them soon!" Could you ask for any more encouragement than that?!
No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you, we can't decide which side to put the nightstand on!
I am still slowly getting around to K's room. I finished up her artwork pillow the other night. She is actually so happy with it she carries it around the house all day and also uses it as her pillow at night. Talk about melting my heart, geesh!
Speaking of pillows, I made a couple of new ones for our couch. I bought the bamboo pillow forms (for K's pillow and the couch pillows) a couple months ago when they were 50% off thinking they would be perfect. Of course, after being bamboozled with my last project I am wishing I just made my own pillow form out of wool. Oh well, live and learn, right? Anyways, I just sewed some simple covers to keep me content for now. I needed to bring spring indoors to brighten things up.
Don't mind the couch, I am hoping to get a slip cover soon
I was a little short on fabric so I had to add a line of white fabric to make it just the right length to fit. My dear friend Marina sent me the cute leaf buttons almost a year ago and I was waiting for the right project to use them on.
And for the Great Outdoor Challenge mixed with a little mini project: Here is my silly faced K climbing (as usual) in our back yard. I knit up another quick calorimetry for her a couple nights ago and she has been wearing it every day - along with that pink dress she refuses to take off!
