I have been working on this little hoodie for Juliana the past couple of weeks. I tend to get an urge to crochet around this time of year. It is so cozy to sit in a chair under a blanket and watch a movie. I found this pattern from Bonita Patterns and fell in love with this pattern. It uses the crocodile stitch which I had never done before. It is definitely a more involved stitch, but thanks to Youtube I figured out after trying to figure it out on my own unsuccessfully. I am hoping to finish this one up tonight and get started on one for Felicity.
I can't believe that the Thanksgiving weekend is already coming to a close! We had such a lovely Thanksgiving with family and lots of good food. We switched our family and dining rooms, which was wayyyy more involved than I thought it would be, but I am super pleased with the new layout. We went and saw the new Muppet movie. About half way through the movie Juliana came over to me and whispered that it was the Muppets! She had been insisting they were called the Muffins. Glad I know what I am talking about. ;0p Yesterday I got to spend some time with our modern quilt guild working on a little Christmas table runner. It was so nice to sit, chat, and sew with no interruptions! Today was spent at church and selling advent wreaths. It was such a great four days, and I am so thankful for my sweet little family. It is going to be hard to go back to "real" life again!
Now I am moving on Christmas sewing. I have had a number of completed projects, but I am finding it hard to get pictures and on the blog. I am really going to try harder! I have a runner and some pillows I am hoping to complete this week for Christmas. Then I have my Christmas presents to finish up, but I am trying to limit those to just a few as to not stress myself out. ;0p We will see how successful I am at that. hehe...
What are you making for Christmas? Do you have big plans?
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
