A FEW THINGS I HAVE BEEN DOING!

I have been doing a little sewing.  A few things that I have been wanting to do for a while and some baby sewing items.

I made some baby receiving blankets so our little darling can be snuggled up.  I always make mine with a double layer of flannel.  They always turn out a little bit heavier and nice.


Next, I saw this on some featherweight machines and I loved this little thread holder and finally had time to make one.



Now, onto the hard one.  I am really just a crochet beginner.  I saw these little booties that I knew my granddaughter would love so I bought the pattern.  They are a little bit over my head and I had to constantly look up how to do this stitch and that stitch.  Then I could not remember them when it was time again to use that stitch, so I had to look them up again.  It took me a week to do my practice bootie which turned out ok, but I just used that to learn the stitches.  Here is my first finished bootie.  Now I am sure you pros will see lots of mistakes, but it was made with love.  I have to make the other one now.  It was hard mostly because it is so small, and the yarn is dark that I had trouble seeing my stitches.  I wish I could of went out and got me a pair of cheater glasses that would have magnified it a little closed for me.  Hopefully, this next one will go a little bit faster!


Anyone else working on anything new or finishing up some ufo's?
