Four Newborn Bonnets

I decided to reopen my etsy shop and list a few 0-3 month bonnets in it, if you are interested! My favorite is the hand-stitched flower yo-yos on the sides. I never get tired of making yo-yos!

Go check it out.


I made a bag for a teacher.

Hello! Despite my silence, I have been making things. Many things. A dress for me. A dress for a pregnant friend. A stack of baby burp cloths and two changing pad covers for a different pregnant friend. Alas, no photos. If I made you something, feel free to take a photo of it for my blog :)

I am working on a quilt for my own bed, which I hope to have finished by August. This pattern using this stack of pretties. It is a rather time-consuming project.

Tomorrow is my daughter's last day of Kindergarten - sniff - and as usual I procrastinated until the last minute with a gift for her teacher.

I decided to make her a bag using this pattern. It turned out very nicely.

I added more pleats on the outside and less pleats on the inside, but other than that I followed the pattern.

I also made a little stuffed mouse for her teacher's assistant, who has been in the classroom every day all year as well. But--big surprise--I forgot to take a photo before wrapping it. I guess I need to work remembering to document my craftings.

Happy June (feels like April up here in MN).
