Yesterday I organized my yarn stash and started working on getting my craft room organized. Oh there is just soooo much stuff in mu I’ve finished another of my 12 of 2012 projects.
Here is what is supposed to be my March finish… I’ve been in a morn yarn than fabric mood and I figured that keeping myself busy doing something was better than doing nothing.
and then on top of that. I have been working on one of my 101 in 1001 goals of getting yarn used up and another goal of making over 30 blankets… this is from Jennifer of Sewhooked.com‘s Oh Wavy Baby Pattern
I started this blanket while finishing the last baby quilt that I made. It seemed like our friends and family members kept announcing pregnancies and I was unsure how many would continue to roll in. So this is the boy baby blanket that I made just in case. I used the same pattern as the blanket in the entry below.
It turned out a bit larger than the typical crochet baby blanket, but I am sure it will make a great baby/toddler blanket. Something that the child can snuggle with until they are 4 or 5…
This blanket and it’s pattern can be viewed on my Ravelry. Username: MKissa
I gave my first two completed quilts ever yesterday to two soon to be parents of twins (a boy and a girl). The soon to be new father has been friends with my boyfriend for over 20 years.
They twins nursery has had a monkey mural painted in it, so what better than monkey quilts.
I just can’t believe I actually got them done on time. They are totally machine sewn and while I would have liked to have at least done some hand quilting, I just didn’t have the time. I had a couple of really really late nights making sure these were done in time for the shower.
The label for Tyler’s quilt. I designed the paper pieced banana on my own.
