I have been squeezing in what I can, when I can. Here's a few things I've been up to recently:
I altered the motif I was working on in my last post. I just wasn't in love with it, so I fiddled until I was in a more serious "like" with it. My corners ended up being a little wonky, but I think the end result is workable, even though it made a very wonky blanket:
And Tiniest got a kick out of playing with all the squares when I laid them out:
I don't think she'll mind if the blanket is a little curly around the edges :)
Made up a few bits for a birthday present... had to work pretty fast, as I had the gift from a party we missed in July and it still had "water/beach" toys in it... a little late for that in this hemisphere I'm afraid :D
A name banner. Seems to be a great little something for kids' gifts. What kid doesn't love getting something with their name on it, right?!
De-stashed a couple tie-on headbands. So very easy to make :)
And finally embellished one of my WIP's so I could gift that as well.
I was assured that the gifts were well received. The little girl in question even took to wearing the toque around the house all afternoon, just as it was, with the mis-matched decorations and all :) I absolutely love to hear when a hand made gift is well received, rather than left to languish in some dark corner, never to be seen again....
Many more things to work on, so I will continue to plod away as best I can, getting things done before the big move :)
