A Good Reason For Blog Silence...

So, lately I haven't had time to do much crafting or blogging...because I got engaged!

So we've been busy looking at places for the wedding and doing assorted planning! It's all very exciting - we're hoping to get married over Columbus Day weekend next fall.

So, getting married means I need bridesmaids. Of course, I couldn't just ask them. That would be boring. So I looked around and found a really cute idea at Project Wedding. And then I made one of these for each of my bridesmaids!

Now, I just need to track them down to give them away...

I also made several very cute penguins. My husband-to-be says he thinks they're the coolest thing I ever made. The pattern comes from Amy Gaines' Etsy shop - I just love her patterns and have made several of them in the past. This very cute penguin was a gift for a friend of mine who is having a baby:

Now that ski season is (mostly) over I'm hoping to start sewing more - and my Spoke sweater, in the works since just after Christmas, is blocking as we speak!
