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!


  1. Many congrats to you! That is reason for a well-deserved blog silence, in my opinion.

    Love the little penguin. Amy Gaines's patterns are so cute!

  2. Congratulations! How wonderful. When is the big day?

  3. congratulations!!! how exciting to be planning a wedding. :) enjoy it--and don't let anyone stress you out or try to make decisions for you!


I love to hear from you!
