I could list the excuses for why I haven't posted, but why should I bore you?
The first item I just made today. I am sure it is some form of copywrite violation and I will be sued, expecially since with my vast readership there is sure to be an employee of the company reading this. :)
My nephew wants to be an UPS man for halloween. I managed to buy him a hat off of ebay, but could not find any patches. (Heard that they don't pass them around any more cuz of security concerns.) Thus I had to make one. Here is my version-
I printed off a picture of one, traced it onto buckrum, then embroidered it with yarn. I had probs with the yarn, so I just filled the brown in with marker. (think I may have messed up the brush end of it, sigh.)
Now some older stuff. This pair of socks I made for my Goddaughter Tessa. I may have posted the first pair earlier, the lace stretched out too much and ended up fitting Hailey... this pair was more restrained. Julie asked me for some convertable mittens. You can fold the top back and hook it to the button and have free fingers. The pattern had an open thumb also, but I thought that was unrealistic for Minnesota.

This is Senj's second pair of knee-high socks. I thought the first didn't fit right, so I adjusted the pattern. These go up higher, luckily, since she grows a foot a month.
I started an apple hat obsession when I made this one for Senj. It is a ONE year old size, and way too short for her. I think if I make it with about an inch and a half of ribbing, it will fit better. The next will be a green apple tho. When Julie saw it, she loved it, so I made one for Ethie (he wanted to be an apple for Halloween!) and a green apple for Greggie. Will post pics when I see them next.

Jodi asked for a bathroom sign-out book for her classroom. I did one on my Bind-It-all, and thought it came out pretty cool. Also had a picture of an outhouse (J's request) and I put a toilet on one side too.
That should catch me up.
Have a great weekend!
