Last Playmat, For Now

Today we had a baby shower of a cousin of my husband, so I made a play mat. Again. 



It’s time to think of something else for a present, because I am a tiny bit bored by making play mats now. This was my fifth or sixth in a couple of months. Anyway, for a tutorial, look here.

~*~

I’m still waiting for the yarn for my blanket , which is not available in the yarn shop at the moment, but meanwhile I’m having a good time behind my sewing machine. The dress I’m working on is almost finished. Just the lapel collar (which, I find, isn’t easy at all for a not so skilled seamstress) and the hem. I think I can show you the dress later this week. The fabrics for two other projects are on their way, so I’m not bored at all without the lacking yarn.

And… my projects are featured as much as three times this week!! Such an honor!!

The Twirly Dress is featured twice:


Once by  ‘We Like to Learn as We Go’! Thank you, Alexis!

And once by ‘These Peas Taste Funny’. Thanks, Terry!

  2. That's a very pretty dress no wonder it was featured. The play mat is exquisite I'm not suprised it is a very popular gift. I like all the different crochet blocks, is it going to be a blanket?
