We’re still in a bit of recovery mode here from the flu. It’s that time of year when we all take turns being sick. It’s especially good when my oldest daughter and I manage to be sick at different times so we can take turns taking care of everyone. I’ve spent all week playing catch up in school and just trying to get us back to a normal routine.
I did do some sewing. I made a nightgown for my daughter’s birthday – her request. Purple camo flannel with several pin tucks down each side. I’m just about finished it. Just a little bit of hand sewing that I hope to do tonight. I had so much fun using my new sewing machine’s buttonhole feature. The buttonholes look a hundred times better than I’ve ever had buttonholes look before.
I really need to have some new quiet activities for my little one during school. There are some great ideas here.
This is also a good idea.
Since I’m back into knitting I have a lot of scraps of yarn left. I found this pattern for a kitchen scrubbie. I want to try it soon.
Here’s another knitting pattern I found. My mother-in-law likes hedgehogs. I can’t blame her – they’re adorable. I found this pattern for knitting a hedgehog and hope to make one soon.
I’m intrigued by weighted blankets. I like the weight of a blanket on me, but sometimes to get the weight I want I have to use too many blankets and it’s too warm. A weighted blanket might be the answer.
It looks like I’ll never run out of projects to work on. Maybe next week I’ll have some pictures for you of finished projects.
