Three months ago I made up my mind to let my blog go, but for three months now I’ve been writing blog posts in my head. Sounds a little crazy, huh? I realized that I really need a place to chronicle my knitting and I miss my internet buddies.
I haven’t knit a ton in the past few months and now that I just got my first sewing machine I see that cutting into my limited crafty time. I LOVE my sewing machine. I haven’t sewn since I was 7 or something and my mom taught me to sew a pillow. That’s my whole experience. Well, I made my first project the other day and it came out pretty darn good. I have decided I have a natural proficiency for sewing! (Remind me I said that some day when I’m dealing with a dress with no armholes with thread tangled all around me). Here is my first project, a Booga Block (I used a tutorial found here - awesome!):
This one has jingle bells in it and next I’ll make one to match with little ribbon tags.
The other sewing project on the horizon is a sewing machine cover using some cool oil cloth I got. I’ll use the pattern from the Sew Everything Workshop book I have (and love!).
As for knitting, I have more items on the needles now than I have ever had. I have 7 socks on the needles, all in various stages of completion, one lace scarf, one plain scarf, one lace wrap, a bag that needs a strap, and ,waiting in the wings, at least 2 more pairs of socks and a bunch of cute things for Cori.
Knitting pictures soon, sewing pictures soon. Cori picture now! (She’s 14 months old now, walking, talking adorable gibberish, and she’s more fun than ever).
