I have been working on a few things here and there, but they have been long projects. Track has been busy with meets being canceled and rescheduled, and I just finished my first year of National Boards for Teaching! Whew...that was quite the undertaking. I won't go into detail about that, but basically it has been busy.
So, of all the things I have been up to, sewing unfortunately hasn't really been one of them. Here are just a few things I have been slowly working on.
Project #1: Portrait Wall in hallway going up the stairs to my sewing room.
Last summer my mom and I found some really cool old metal grates at a few different antiques stores, and I had been just waiting and waiting for the time to put them up. (Here is my original post of where I got the idea). Finally over spring break I was able to start to gather pictures from my mom and mother-in-law, and I could begin the hard work of assembling my picture wall.
I am still planning on adding a few more pictures of the amazing women in my life and Seth's life--but tracking down more pictures does take some time!
Take careful notice of the magnets. These were old clip on earring from Seth's grandmother and great-grandmother. I took the backs off of them and glued on magnets. Now I can enjoy them in another way other than wearing them!
Don't you just love this picture? It is of my father-in-law!
Project #2: Baby Afghan
A few months ago on Pinterest I saw a tutorial for a plush, baby afghan. With all my friends and family being pregnant, I thought it might be a good idea to try out the pattern and make a few. This pattern couldn't have been easier or turned out any better. The texture is soft and plump, making it really cozy and quick to make. I did this one in Aqua, Gray, and Cream. I am currently working on another one with Pink, Orange, and Cream. I love them both and can't decide which one is better. I will post a final product when it is complete.
Project #3: Truck Onesie
One of my dearest friends is throwing a baby shower this upcoming weekend and needed a little something special for the party. She sent me a picture of this adorable onesie with a dump truck on it with large tires and asked if I could make something similar. Immediately I was up for the challenge and couldn't wait to try something new. Here is the final product.
