Hi, everyone!

Hope you’re all well and moving right along as you dream up efforts to make others feel happy and special and loved…it’s the best gift of them all, isn’t it?  : )

Well, I promised that I’d pop on today to post about a couple of things I’ve been working on.  Promise kept!

First, I’ll talk about my first toy for Craft Hope’s Project 19.  My choice was made by memories of my children and the strange little things that they called their favorites when they were young. I can’t imagine they’re the only oddballs (their mama being cemented firmly on that list!) on the planet who like things like this, so I made a lovey in thier honor for another little sweetie.

I found my pattern in Sewing Bits and Pieces by Sandi Henderson.  I made the Woodland Bunny…

*** RASPBERRIES!!!!  Why are my photos crooked???  LOL ***

…and I think he is super sweet.  My Clare likes him alot!  : )  This pattern is a great stash-buster pattern.  In fact, alot of my work lately has consisted of applique…because my scrap stash is obcene.  *blush*

Next, I was asked to make some slippers for a friend and THEY ARE SO AWESOME AND WARM AND COZY!!

Smashed flat:

Sitting up pretty-like:

I made a model before starting Shannon’s slippers to make sure that I understood the pattern well – the lone slipper was confiscated by my 9yo son who demanded a match, so one pair of feet in this house sports a pair of slippers!  I have 2 more pairs to make and stuff in stockings.  No sweat!

What else…  Oh, yes!!  Napkins!  : D

2 months ago, I had enough cloth napkins to fill my drawer, and now I don’t have enough to get through a meal.  I have no idea what happened, truly.  I’ve checked the tree fort, the doll bed, the bike trailers, the workshop, the linen closet, the silver-dryer-vent-thing, closets, buckets…you get the idea.  My napkins are no more, so I’ve made another dozen or so!  And because I first thought of the sparkle in my children’s eyes upon seeing something new in the house instead of the sounds of their screeching voices as they fight because they all want the same one, I made them with different designs.  *insert eye-twitch here*

There is a hiccup on the snowflake applique, but it’ll mend.  : )

What are you working on these days?  I’d love to hear!  : )
