What a wonderful holiday I spent with all my kids and grands. It was marvelous! Now that I have a little downtime, I am tossing around a couple of ideas for knitting projects. I am still knitting on Sothia - she stays in the car and is for the hours I spend taking my mom to doctors appts.
I was going to show a few of my projects I made for gifts this year.
Second, I made these adorable ABC letters and a bucket to put them in. My only regret is that I did not do numbers. Didn't even think about it. Got it off PINTEREST . Here is my photo of the ones I made. Loved loved loved this. Will most certainly make again - great gifts. And, by the way, if you haven't been to PINTEREST, you are missing A LOT! Love that website.
tea mugs w/sidekick from Angela Ingram on Etsy. Bought one for Cheryl and one for my mom. Then I found a "tea wreath" to make on PINTEREST which I thought was the coolest thing. I made mine a bit smaller than the one on the tuitorial but let me tell you, they were a huge hit. I bought 2 boxes of assorted tea bags - mainly for color - and used those. I painted the clothespins, covered them in scrapbook paper scraps and voila! I love it so much that I just ordered my own mug from Angela's etsy shop on Monday!
I made some cute little felt citrus coasters for Island Girl. Here is a link to the Purl Bee tutorial. Adorable!
I Island Girl a blanket out of Minkie fabric and Citron and Gray bird material on the back from Michael Miller but no photo; I made a slouchy hat for my niece and no photo. I forget to take them sometimes!
A few other handmades but this was about it. Some I forgot to take photos - others the photos did not come out.
OTN now is Summer Flies - again - this time in a cashmere blend. AND the wonderful new Hiya Hiya SHARPs needles. If you haven't tried them, you don't know what you're missing.
Wishing each and everyone of you a most joyous, healthy, crafty and peaceful 2012...
