Llamas on film

This is what happens when your camera gets into the hands of a four year old.

And the gallery would not be complete without the standard ceiling shot. Someone needs to put CFLs on the shopping list.

Monthly Sewing and more!

February brings new sewing projects and more!  But first, the projects!

Technically, I started this apron a couple months ago.  It was a birthday gift for a friend.  Her apron is made of the same fabric as one I made for her daughter last year.  So now they match.  Cutesy.

Next up is a set of crayon rolls a friend asked me to make for Valentine’s Day.  Her son was none too pleased about the girly Valentine fabric, so I made his different from the rest as a surprise.

It’s very manly with an elastic and race car button closure instead of the velcro.

Not exactly full of crayons, but they were MIA for some reason?

This last sewing project was one I started in December.  I needed to make two of these, and finally finished the second at the start of this month.  This is a chalk mat made of chalk fabric.  There is a little pocket for chalk and it rolls up to take on the go.

And last, but not least, I spent January learning something new!  A dear friend of mine spent one evening a week with me in January teaching me to knit!  My youngest was asking me about it one day and stuttered over the words.  Out came “knittering” and it has stuck ever since.  So a new category was born with this finished project…

A gorgeous, warm, VERY long scarf I made for myself.  I was so happy to have a finished project!

I also made my son a camo scarf.  He requested camouflage for some reason.  I guess he thinks camo is manly.  He loves it! Can’t seem to find the pic I took of it.  Another time, I suppose.

I have had so much fun finishing the unfinished projects and starting new ones.  I have made gifts for the kids’ friends and have decided that with only three exceptions, I am going to make gifts the rest of the year.  I have some wonderful ideas in mind and cannot wait to make and share them!
