A few months ago I knit myself an Age of Brass and Steam shawl for myself… only to finish it and realize that 1) it was smaller than I had wanted it to be and 2) it was also a lot stiffer than I had hoped. Since I loved the design, I knew that I would be knitting it up again… so I unravelled it all and prepped the yarn for reknitting.
Back in 2011, I was on the hunt for a flat Easter egg crochet pattern that was worked in the round. I had made a heart garland a few weeks earlier for Valentines Day and I wanted to make a similar egg garland for Easter. I searched the internet and found that there were plenty of patterns for 3 dimensional eggs and flat eggs worked in rows
It’s back to school time, so you know what that means… sickies galore!!! =)
The kids have been fighting something ever since they got their flu shots 3 1/2 weeks ago. I was hoping in Abby’s case that her runny nose was caused by teething (getting 2 of the last bottom 4!!), but it doesn’t look like that was entirely it. Both kids were feeling pretty crumby this past Sunday (lets face it, Ray and I weren’t feeling too great either – we’re fighting whatever “it” is too), so the day was spent doing “calm” things… even though it would have been great to get out and run and play… it was a beautiful fall day!
Now that Abby’s birthday is over and the thank you cards have all (hopefully) been delivered, I feel like time can start moving again here at home. No more worrying about what needs to be done and taken care of… everything is just back to life as usual… thank goodness!!
This tutorial has been on my mind for quite some time now… since Christmas of last year actually. At that time I had made Noah a set of numbered bean bags following the freezer paper method that I saw on Lil Blue Boo. She’s got a great tutorial for freezer paper stenciling there, so I’m not going to repeat it.
We have been getting our fair share of rain over the past week… having one day of rain after the next leaves us with a toddler who is going bonkers and a mama who’s about to start pulling her hair out!
