Over the last few days, I’ve been knitting and sewing a lot. And I do mean a lot. My dad thinks I must be bored, but I would argue that I’m keeping busy so that I won’t become bored.
Anyways, I can’t reveal everything I’ve been working on (gifts are supposed to be surprises), but I will reveal that on Saturday and Sunday, I successfully followed a pattern for the first time and made an awesome apron. I got Bailey to try it on for me and I almost had a pic but he took it off when he realized what I was doing 😦 I’ve also been knitting washcloths. Because I need another scarf like a need a hole in my head and I can’t knit anything other than flat things. And also because these are my favorite washcloths ever. Next on my list of projects is a new cover for the ironing board. And then a quilt (because I have a ton of quilt squares already cut) and then a t-shirt quilt with Bay’s old t-shirts that he’s been saving. I think I’ll stay busy for a while.
But getting to the point: I took a picture of the living room floor. The sad part is, the whole apartment, not just the floor, looks like a craft store exploded.
Note the yardstick that was a gift from my extremely thoughtful mother-in-law. It has made all of this sewing (ok, technically cutting) a whole lot easier!
