Music Box Jumper
I really have to work on my photography skills because this jumper is so cute and the picture just doesn't do it justice. It is Oliver and S's music box jumper and it was so fun to sew. I finished sewing it last night. And there wasn't good light today but I couldn't wait to post the dress. I used some nice fine wale corduroy. And I can't remember where I bought it from of course. I think it will go nice with the sweater I just made for Stella and then I am going to make the shirt for under the jumper. That is why Stella isn't wearing it yet. I need the blouse. It isn't an Oliver and S pattern so I am worried I can't do it. I have the most luck with Oliver and S patterns. Hopefully I can start on it tomorrow but it may take me a while. I have a few other projects in the works.
Today I started a knitting class to make these mittens. I am hoping to learn to make seamless mittens and learn to do stranding. It was a very fun class and I am really excited to be taking it. I tried on the instructors mittens to determine what size I need and the mittens were so beautiful, soft and substantial. I have never had mittens so nice before. I hope mine come out.
I am also waiting to get the materials to start a cross-stitch sampler. I will give the details on that later because I am a little frustrated it is taking so long for me to get my materials in the mail. And then I have a lot of quilts in various stages but I haven't touched any of them since the beginning of December.
And my son has been begging me to make a house with him so I had better go help.
