Peanut's 2nd Stroller Blanket

When Adam and Raewyn found out they were expecting their wee one, Raewyn asked me to make them a crib blanket, which I happily agreed to. This is the blanket I made.

Hugs and Kisses Baby Quilt

Of course, I didn't stop there. After all, a babe also needs a soft afghan to be tucked around them when they are in a stroller or sleeping contently on someone's should. So, I knit Peanut this colorful Rainbow Stroller Blankie:

Within 2 days of Peanut being born, I got a call from Adam. "We love the rainbow blanket so much. It is the perfect size. How hard would it be to make another one just like it?"

I ask you... when your son asks you to knit something for his newborn baby, can any mom say, "No". Well, I couldn't. I got right on it... took me a little longer than I wanted it to, but Peanut received it in the mail last week and now she can flip back and forth between her primary rainbow blankie and...Read more

Carousel Coat Pattern

I've have long looked at coats/sweaters like these and drooled... and dreamed... because the finished coats/sweaters are too dear for my budget.

It never occurred to me to check and see if anyone had a pattern for them. Well, these extremely awesome designs from Katwise are available as an ebook. (You can also buy the finished sweaters from Katwise.)

Imagine the fun of collecting and repurposing sweaters to make a one-of-a-kind...Read more

Please With A Cherry On Top Coloring Page

As a child, if we wanted something really bad, we'd say, "Please with a cherry on top?" because who can resist a cherry on top? I know I can't. I could eat an entire jar of maraschino cherries, but, oh, having just one on top makes just about any sweet treat all the more special! Today we are sharing our Please With A Cherry On Top Applique Block. Here is a totally yummy cupcake, oozing with frosting, and the pièce de résistance... a cherry on top, of course! What flavor of icing do you want on your cupcake?

Our Please With a Cherry on Top Coloring Page is based on our Please With a Cherry on Top Applique.

Prettiest Bun

Last week the girls' dance studio ran a coolest bun contest. We saw some truly crazy buns that looked like cupcakes, birds' nests, and monster faces. Then there were some really pretty designs with fancy braids, hair twirled into flowers, and such. Every day before dance, the girls had me do their hair in a different design. Fairy's lattice ponytails and twisted bun combination ended up winning the prettiest bun category. It was super cool... although a bit time consuming.
