A Little Knitting And Crochet

I finished a baby boy set not long ago, so I've been working on one for a baby girl in-between working on Christmas gifts.  Just one more little sock to go and this set will be finished!

For this set I used the Basic Baby Hat pattern and Susan B. Anderson's Jelly Bean Baby Socks pattern.  My instructions for the crocheted blanket edge can be found HERE.

Sewing Gifts For The Holidays

There's probably a little too much truth here, but if the world's most interesting man can do it, so can I!

Snow Day!

Just when we were starting to think the big storm was going to miss us completely...it hit!  Today is a snow day and I'm planning on spending the day in my sewing room stitching up a storm!  Not only do I have numerous projects of my own to finish before Christmas, but yesterday I also agreed to finish a project for someone else before Christmas.  Less than 2 weeks...can I do it?

Blogging At Christmastime

Blogging at Christmastime is HARD!  I'm doing plenty of sewing, but nothing that I'll be able to show until after the holidays, so bare with me if posts are few and far between this month.  With that said, I can show these little stockings that I just finished for the granddog and grandcat.  Apparently Santa will leave treats for the good doggies and kitties if they have their own stockings to hang!  Who knew?
