Something new, something blue, and something that will bite you!

I have a lot of craft projects going on right now, so it’s nice when I finish some and can post about them!

I figured out how to embroider this Spring, and I made wedding handkerchiefs for two lovely brides (one of whom is getting married Saturday!). I’m hoping Missy and Boo will enjoy having these “something new and something blue” keepsakes.

I’ve also been crocheting a few amigurumi. The first one I finished this year was for Cat’s birthday. We had this conversation on g-chat back in February:

omg.. i just noticed your adorable turtle in the crib.
If i don’t have kids in 10 years will you just make me a cute animal so i can have one

You don’t have to have a kid to get an animal! 🙂

So I sent her the page of patterns I use and told her to pick one out… she fell in love with Dale the Mosquito. I stitched him up and shipped him off for her birthday in March. I love his buggy eyes!

  1. You might make Dale for your back yard. Maybe he would scare off the natural critters!!! I love him. The hankies are beautiful. Mom

  2. I love my hankie! I love that you put it in a heart, too. 🙂 Thank you for this very thoughtful gift! I’ll miss having you there, but know my prayers go with you. Love you!
