I just bought yarns & patterns to make these:
Marlo's striped felted bag
Chelle's Circle jackets for my girls...gonna be a hot item (need them for easter!)
And i need to come up with a vest for Teddy's Easter outfit. I'm thinking beige cotton, sugar & cream? He loves vests, loves getting all duded up for church. I got him and daddy both french blue dress shirts and khaki slacks. So I'm thinking teddy needs a vest and a tie. He wants a yellow tie....maybe blue and yellow if i can find a short clip-on for him. The girls have matching dresses on layaway. They are mostly white with tiny pink flowers and green vines on them, jewel necklines, sleeveless, ballerina length with a sash tied in the back. I'm making them Chelle's circle coats in bernat coordinates baby yarn (cherry) and trimming them in bernat eyelash in white. For the closure I'm gonna make a white rose and sew a snap on the back and on the jacket. Then ooohhh I'm so excited about this, I ordered a set of matching bracelets and chokers from Chelle for each of them!! Now if I can just find their shoes!!! And who does this leave???? ME!! I don't know what I'm wearing yet, I'm just so excited about dressing the rest of my family, I'm not worried about my own yet, maybe in a few weeks.
I know not everyone who celebrates Easter as a Christian holiday dresses up like this but Easter and Christmas are the two times we have family pictures done, so that's why I go into such detail planning for our clothes.
Oh and I picked up a pattern booklet I've been wanting for a long time, Flower Power by Lily. I'm drooling over the beach bag on the front cover. I think though I want to change up the colors a bit. Make the main color black, and then use the hot pink, hot purple, hot blue and......what do you think I should use for the last color? orange, green or white???
And of course I've got to make the flip-flops to go with!!! It would be a crime not to!!
OOPS!! Didn't realize i deleted wednesday's post, oh well.
and by the look of my house you can tell. UGH!! housework must be done!!
tons of pictures!!
okay now I got a ball winder for part of my valentine's gift from hubby and he's been winding all my stash up for me so i can get it all organized a little bit better.
this is about 1/3 to half of what I have.
I can't wait to see if my other yarn I ordered comes today!! I'll post again later if it does.
