My time was equally split this weekend between family, crafting and work. It was the perfect mix! I pulled my knitting basket out from the closet, where it hibernates during the summer months, and finished up a few projects that I had on my needles from last winter...including this gorgeous, luscious cowl.
I also broke out the sewing machine, and made several simple fabric bags, which are going to be used for wrapping Christmas presents (yes- I am already starting to plan for Christmas!), and two pom-pom scarves (from this Purl tutorial), also Christmas presents.
With my final bit of crafty time and energy, I started cutting out the pieces to make Posie Gets Cozy's adorable felt ornaments- although I fear I may be in over my head when it comes to the embroidery- actually, the whole thing in general.
And finally, although I hardly count this as crafty- this is just what needs to happen when your first born is celebrating his first birthday- I made birthday invitations! We are going with the polka-dot theme, mainly because I feel like there are so many fun things that come in little round packages. Gumballs, bouncy balls, balloons (kind of)- ummm, whatever, I am sure there are plenty more that will pop into my head before the big day!
