Block 5 of A Tisket A Tasket (link in sidebar) was so much fun and is just as sweet as the first four. (And, yes, I put the upper wings on the butterfly upside down—doh!!)
I cannot believe how tickled I’ve been with this adorable BOM series. A huge thank you to Anne at Bunny Hill for providing this for us devotees – FREE!
Made a beginning on some baby gifts (see previous post). Here’s Rudy the Rectangle. Isn’t he a goofy guy?? He is an amigurumi (Japanese-style critter crocheted in single crochet stitches) and the pattern was FREE at Michael’s, compliments of Lion Brand Yarn. Are we seeing a trend here? Free? My favorite price?
And a few burp cloths…almost free as I pulled from my stash of 30s kids’ prints. Just stitch a rectangle to a pre-fold cloth diaper and embellish with some rickrack to make burping time just a little more colorful LOL! Can a new Mom ever have enough burp cloths?
Wrap a few up with some ribbon or netting and toss into the gift bag.
And a few more crocheted hexies join the group:
The hexie pattern is generously provided by Lucy at Attic24 (see side bar for link).
It seems as though I accomplish more when I have several projects going at once. I can flit from thing to thing as the mood strikes!
Hope all you moms out there in Blogland get to spend a little time with your sons and daughters on Mothers’ Day. And maybe there’ll be some chocolate involved.
