This weekend has been hecked so I wasn't able to get a lot done as I thought I would. I did get some crocheting done. I can't tell you how much I have missed making things. I like the finish projects and like how calm and relaxing crocheting does.
I was able to finish that girlie baby blanket that has the crochet edging going around it. It came out so pretty love the outcome to it.
I brought 2 yards of the fabric 1 yard on each side with the crochet edging sandwich right between the fabric.
I picked a thinner fabric so it's more of a receiving blanket then a blanket since it will be getting warmer outside dont want anything to thick when summer comes.
On 2 sizes of the blanket I have pink, green then on the other 2 sides I have green, pink. The stitches is small shell stitches that worked up quickly.
I measured the sides by chaining and using the chain row to measure how many stitches I needed.
Used I - hook
Yarn Caron Simply Soft limelight and soft pink. If you look at the picture you will see I am almost done I had to pin it down so I can sew it. I will have to hand sew this so that the yarn wont get stuck in my sewing machine foot so wish me luck with hand sewing lol don't really like hand sewing I guess I will listen to my mp3 player while I sew this.
Now after finishing this blanket for a girl I thought I would do one for a boy as well. So when I came across the blue, white and green frog fabric I was like oh wow. Ok now I can do a boy blanket. Been going though my stitch edge book to see what would like nice for a boy blanket. Haven't decided yet what stitch to do. My fiance told me to do something that is like square like don't do fan or shell stitches for a boy blanket so I am still looking so I won't do anything to girlie for this blanket.
Also I want to do some sewing. Still haven't started on my girls gowns but, will soon. Also while I am doing that I have some ideas on myself a shirt and a dress. Found these 2 pretty fabrics that I love.
The patterns I got for these 2 fabrics both by McCall. M6037 and M5893. I don't know which one I am going to use for which fabric I just liked these plus I want to see if i can handle doing these patterns. Haven't sewn in a very long time so wish me all luck.
Ok thats my update right there so off I go. Since I only go to school twice a week for this term I am going to enjoy sewing, crocheting and trying to catch up on my reading.
Everyone have a great Tuesday and a great week. :) Take care everyone and happy crafting :)
