Ciga- oh my goodness I love the quilt. Is the pattern from a book? I made a really cool quilt for DD before she was born with embroidered Totoros all over it, so I'm trying to think of how to make an equally-special one for this baby.
Danielle- I'm drooling over your stash of handknits!
I'm a sewer and so far have been making a few pairs of newborn-sized longies (pants) out of some felted merino sweaters. DD was born in July, so I have no cold-weather newborn clothes. I'm planning on making some felted merino kimono sweaters too. I'll post pics soon.
thanks chacha I made up the pattern. I have a pad of graphing paper that I build patterns on until I get them right. Then I always tend to fudge things a bit when I start cutting fabric. I love how forgiving quilts can be for a person like me who is always changing my mind mid-stream.
Do you have a pattern for kimono sweaters? That is such a perfect style for hard to dress infants. I definitely need to add some to my list of things to make.
Oh my gosh love these!! Keep the pictures and projects coming ladies! I have had no energy to do anything but lie on the couch until two weeks ago. Now I am finally knitting something! Its been years since I knit though so I'm going with a super easy baby blanket pattern (with fairly thick yarn so it knits faster!). Thats okay, I'm enjoying it. And you ladies are inspiring me!
I bought this cross stitch to make - now I just need to get motivated to start it! http://www.amazon.com/Tobin-Buggy-Record-Counted-Stitch/dp/B003B3I02I/ref=pd_bxgy_hg_img_y
I love the cross stitches, ladies! I always make the same cross stitch (in different colours) for my kids. I bought the pattern for my oldest and just bought the materials to re-do it for the rest of them. This is DS1's (with his info blocked out)
I've bought the materials for the new baby's, but am a little cross stitched out after making this one (that still has to be ironed and framed...although, it looks like my DS's could have been ironed better!) for a friend
Okay this is also not for my baby but now that its done I can start working on my babe's quilt. I literally finished it 20 minutes ago. This one is for DH's niece who is pregnant and her shower is next week so I've been in time crunch to get it done. I wasn't super excited about this design when I pieced it but now that its all together and quilted I actually like it.
