I was the only girl in Winston-Salem with a smile on my face. It wasn't much snow, especially compared to what we had the previous week, and what they currently have in Virginia and other states to the north. I love the winter weather and I have stitched up a lot of new things. Here are some of them:
Wilson picked out this camo fabric for a new pair of pajama pants. He calls them his army man pants.
Anna Jane picked out this fabric for a skirt months ago:
I followed this tutorial but had to make a few adjustments. I didn't have as much fabric as the pattern called for, but I actually think this worked out better. I think more fabric would have swallowed her. This fits perfectly.
I made a cute little snail:
Which is actually not a snail, but a fabric cover for Anna Jane's little measuring tape. The yoyo designates the side of the tape with the button used to retract the tape. It took about 15 minutes to make. Can't remember where I found the pattern.
I made these cute little Valentine's leg warmers for
At our Superbowl dinner tonight, I snapped a photo of the leg warmers in action:
Somebody needs to teach Miss Priss how to SIT and EAT like a lady. Hmmm. I guess that's my job.
I made this dish mat from this tutorial:
I made one as a house-warming gift for my friend Lindsey, and I liked it so much, I made mine identical to hers!
I made two dresses for Anna Jane. One I haven't taken photos of yet. As you can see from this hodge-podge of a photo mess, I don't really have a great place to photograph the kids or their clothes in this house. I tried getting pics of this blue dress with a bit of sunlight:
I think this is my favorite of all of the things I made since the big snow of 2010 last weekend. And I didn't even start it until last night.
I put the button on today and if I knew anything about drafting patterns, I would make one for myself!
With the clicking of the camera all afternoon, Wilson requested that the following picture be taken:
I will leave you with that.
Here's to the next snowstorm!
