I have been busy--knitting-- rather than sewing. I was preparing for our trip to help take care of our 3 grandkids in Virginia while my son does his marine reserve weekend.
I decided to knit hats for the kids. I'm pretty sure I already showed you the pictures of the 2 Sesame Street hats. My oldest, Eli, ripped off Elmo in about 2 minutes so that required surgery!
I finished the adorable baby hat for the 7 month old Leia. And I'm calling that my January mini (I even cleared it with the "boss", Wendy...VBG).
My knitting skills really leave a lot to be desired and the baby's hat was too big and fit the boys whereas the boys' hats fit the baby. :-(. I can't tell you how many sweaters I've knitted that are too short. I do enjoy knitting; I'm just not too great at it. I will stick to scarves and washcloths I think!
Here are the 3 kids modeling their hats, temporarily anyway!
I did work on my first appliqué block for the Céçile challenge but I haven't pressed it so I'm not going to show you yet. I sewed it on the plane to DC. I'll share it once I'm back in California on Thursday. I have done my pieced blocks already. I prepped another block to sew on the plane going back to California. Prepping appliqué work is always pretty time consuming!
Before I left, I was walking with some friends and took some pictures I thought were charming. It was a foggy morning and the ducks were very happy!
Hope you're having a great week and staying healthy!
