I had great expectations for this blog. I thought it would be the perfect place to organize the patterns I use and the sites I love. Instead, I felt weighed down by the prospect of photographing all my work and writing about it. So I am going to try to this again… but with lower expectations. Maybe I’ll just post once a week. And maybe without pictures. But I do love pictures!

Anyway, my sister is pregnant which has started a flurry of crafting. So I have much to blog about.

Projects completed:

Booties– this was a great tutorial and the adaptations are endless. Mine were dark grey and red with a few artistic zigzag stiches across the toe

Bib from nested. I actually made a set of these in under an hour. So satisfying. (with very little bias tape…which usually drives me insane) Might try ironing on some vinyl next time so the bibs are easier to clean.

Projects to do:

Bath hooded towel from purl bee

Shopping cart cover using a pattern

Projects I would like to do:

A mobile?? if I could find a good tutorial

Blocks from the scraps of what was a much too time consuming quilt project– using a pattern like this one or maybe this one (both via oneprettything)

Along with more booties, bibs, and maybe some things to match the baby shower. I have a million ideas for the co-ed baby shower.
