Update

I have several projects on the needles/ in my head.


Right now on the needles I have a lavendar soaker for DD, using the Curly Purly pattern (will have to find and add the link). I just have the waistband done so far, not much progress there.


I also just added 2 skeins of Caron Brites Orange...I have one skein here already. I have a pattern in a book of a baby blanket I just LOVE and have to try, and I think bright orange is just the color to try it in. Plus, the newspaper carrier screwed up and gave me 3 Michael's ads this week, so I have 3 40% off coupons. If that isn't the knitting gods saying to stock up, I don't know what is.


I have a pair of socks to make as well.


I sewed the second sling this weekend - looks great! I also made 2 setws of window toppers - a straight one out of Thomas fabric for my DS's new room, and a gathered one of a fish fabric for the nursery. We spent the weekend painting the spare bedroom and then filling it with new furniture for my DS. I'm counting that as a crafty weekend :)


I have pics of the room, but the curtains weren't up yet when I took it so I will have to update those later :)

I have been quilting, that's what's up! :) I am so excited and nervous about these quilts... a friend is expecting twins and her shower is March 30... not much time to do up a pair of baby quilts. But, considering her colors, I'm pretty psyched about them (yellow and brown). I can't wait to wrap them up and post pictures.

I love your sling, BTW. Did I mention that already? DS is also a big Thomas fan... That's too cute about Toby and Nemo - that darn fish is so loveable.

Sorry I've been so MIA. I don't know what my deal is. It's like I'm busy, but I can't pinpoint what makes me any busier than usual.
