Crafting On :: In Flannel and Yarn

It's supposed to be a rainy Michaelmas here and we are going slowly.
Before we get moving (apple cake for breakfast!), here are some things I've been working on.

Night Pants

Pajama pants for Roan from some yard sale flannel.
I saw this fabric and knew it was just right for him.

Tess D'Urbervilles

A new nightgown for Willow.  You can't see it, of course, under her new shawl.
The gown is a simple one, and the pattern relies mostly on trim, which I don't rely on.
It was quick and easy and I'll likely make a couple more, along with a robe.


Here's the back, which I really like.  A simply shawl for a child with no buttons or pins to fiddle with.
I'm hoping to make one for me--this one is slightly smaller, but roomy on Willow.


And here's a picture of that Tomten Jacket I started back in February, finished in July and zippered in September.
It fits well and Roan can even wear it.  I guess he's next, after I make a bonnet for Laurel.

Oh what pretty handmade cosyness! I love the flannel nightie, when I was a little girl I had dreams of having a nightie like that!!

I love so many of these projects - the pj pants, the shawl and the hooded jacket. How sweet is a little one in a shawl!

Love all the coziness going on in this post. :) Flannel nightgowns were one of my very favorite things growing up... I got a new one each winter.

Love, love, love. The Tomten is wonderful, and the nightgown WITH the shawl? Perfection.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
