Crafting On

Boy, it's been a long time, hasn't it? It seems I can work dawn till dusk many days and have very little time to sit down.  I sit when I eat or nurse Laurel Mae.  I made some progress last week, though, out of pure determination.  Screen-free week taught me how little I need to be using a computer.  Life with three little ones is tremendously full, no matter how you look at it.  It won't always be this way, of course, and I will long for these days someday, so I am trying to hold onto them while they are here.  All that said, on with the crafting.  For the little ones, of course!

Tomten Jacket

The Tomten Jacket is coming along nicely, several months in.
All I need to do is finish the sleeve, seam them up, and put in a zipper.
Let's see if I can finish it by Memorial Day.  Haha.

Skirt and Vest

Here's a sweet outfit for Willow using an old See & Sew pattern I got eight years ago.
I got the fabric at a yard sale and it worked out nicely.
I got to exercise all my skills--gathers, tracing paper, basting, sewing a lining, invisible hems, mattress stitches.
Pardon the wrinkles.  Willow has been wearing in a lot and I dried it on the line.

Night Pants

Here are some recycled pants I made for Roan.
Old men's pajama pants, of course.
Now he can dress for bed, just like daddy.
Willow's got a women's nightgown waiting to be altered, along with another old pattern.

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.
