I cut the fabric for the quilt tops earlier this week. They will be birthday presents for my Stella and my niece who both have birthdays at the end of April. I am making the doll quilts from Helen Philipps book Simple Sewn Gifts. They will get a lot of embellishing before they are quilted but I don't plan to pick them up again until after Easter.
Luke and Stella were playing their mega blocks before and after breakfast. They actually used all of them and I thought that maybe they could use some more. I gave Luke the option this morning of going to the store to buy more mega blocks or to stay home and make Easter decorations. He is my boy. He chose to stay home and make decorations. I cut the paper above with my Cricut and Luke glued it on the paper. I punched two bunny holes and have it hanging with ribbon from a hook now.
At nap time I was able to work more on Stella's Easter shrug. I was knitting pretty slow because I was watching The Walking Dead. I've seen an episode here and there with my husband (he watches regularly) but I just decided to start watching it from the beginning. I knew that the show would make me a nervous wreck but there aren't many other good shows to watch. And I knew from the episodes I had seen that it was well written and well acted.
So back to the sweater. The details are on Ravelry. All I have left to do are the sleeves and collar. It has gone very quickly and is super cute so far. I have a cabled shrug pattern I want to make for Stella too but I need to knit something for my Luke next.
Luke has also requested that I make him a special shirt for Easter. I told him he could wear his explorer vest when he asked me what he was going to wear. And he said "no" and that I needed to make him a special shirt. I am gladly taking recommendations of stylish easy fast boy shirt patterns.
I just linked up at Plum and June's let's get acquainted which is over at Owen's Olivia this week.
