28 more days and counting…

Sorry I have been away so long. I have just been Busy, busy, busy due to my recent outburst of Christmas crafting. Normally I don’t commit to too much in the way of handmade gifts but this year I am on a mission! It mainly has to do with this being the first Christmas where my ability to sew is pretty good so there will be lot of sewn gifts. Anyway, this will be a quick post but here are some sneak peeks on what I haven been working on…

Anemoi Mittens

Ummm…what a minute! These are for me!! But lets forget about that for a second. Anyway I started on the Anemoi Mittens and they are fabulous. love the knitting. However, I think I may have got the colors backwards and probably should have switched them since the green seems to overpower the purple. Haven’t decided yet if I will rip or keep going.

In the meantime I have been obsessed with making toys for my younger niece and nephew. I am currently working on Elijah for my nephew.

Ezekial’s head

This is such a wonderful and well written pattern. It was so worth the $4.00 for such an ingenious pattern and construction. So far I have completed the head on one leg since this picture was taken. Can’t wait until he is done!

My Wee Wonderfuls

Last, but definitely not least, are my Wee Wonderfuls!!! OMG I have been obsessed with these. These go fast but I have become obsessed with all the accessories. I want to make all the clothes and backpacks to go with them but I had to stop because I have other Christmas crafting to work on. I did make them for my niece but I want to keep them for myself 😥 They are so cute it makes me wanna squeal 😀 and believe me it take quite a lot to make me do that! These definitely deserve a proper daylight post so I will have to leave you with this teaser shot.

I have lots more to tell you but this is all I can muster for now. I hope to have another post this weekend if I have time.

Have a good week all!

    ps. I definitely love my Olive & Archie way more than my kids do. 🙂

  3. The mittens look great; I dont think the green is overpowering the purple at all.

    Elijah is an adorable pattern! I saw it on someone else’s blog last week. It’s definitely in my queue!

  4. Hi, i just found you through your flickr pictures- while ooking up amy butler bags. Your stuff is amazing! And your pictures of your projects are great. I have my handmade list too, and it’s looming over my head big time! Good luck with everything!

  5. I like those mittens and the colors are great… I’m trying to picture them reversed and I don’t know… it might make the pattern pop out more mayyybe. It’s hard to tell.

    That picture of those dolls is great though. They look intriguing. Like they maybe have a dark past.
