This week has been a good week. I finished several things and I love the feeling of accomplishment I get when I finish a big project. It is almost as good as a brownie – almost. I like to put them in the center of my dining room table so I can look at them and be excited all day.
Things I finished:
-Climbing Kisses baby blanket. This one ended up pretty different from the original pattern. I decided to make it stroller size instead of crib, and changed the border. I did not like how the original pattern had lines going out at different spots than the inside body. I am really happy with how it turned out and I need to get it put on the shops this week.
-Twin Bunnies – Etsy Special Order. These bunnies turned out super cute. While working on them I started getting all kinds of ideas for mixing up colors and not just making them in solid colors. Actually I am thinking of using my leftover balls from other projects and making trauma teddies to give to my local police. I read about these in a crochet magazine and I love the idea. I think the striped and mixed up bears would be perfect ways to distract kids in a troubled situation.
-Moogly CAL Square 2. I love this square. I am thinking of making a pillow case for one of my plainer couch pillows. It is dramatic enough I will love it for a long time, and not to girly that Hubby will be annoyed with it.
Poor Ignored WIPS
· Heating Pad Cover – I am writing a pattern for one to go on my electric heating pad. I am so tired of the cheap flimsy one that won’t stay in place.
· Cuff Booties – This is a kit I ordered from Craftsy. Something to make just for me.
· the most disappointing sweater ever (I am not ready to talk about it and it is in the corner thinking about what it did wrong.)
· Amelia’s Quilt – I started a jelly roll quilt for my daughter. I only work on it when Hubby is on long work trips so its been in a tote since November. Thinking of breaking it out next week while he is out of town
