Off the Needles

A 'Milo' vest for each of them.

(To put into perspective just how crazy-teeny this baby-vest is: the hanger it's on? A children's garment hanger. So so small.)

And a wee head-warmer for the one with the bluest eyes.

And plenty of longies, waiting impatiently for a teeny person to wear them. (Hear that, baby?)

Getting Crafty

Chilly temperatures, and a mama that is too tired and heavy to do much in the way of outdoor fun these days, means that we've been spending time inside, getting crafty. The watercolours make an almost daily appearance, and these books have been dusted off as we work our way through whatever projects capture the attention of the littles.

A few projects from the last week:

Wet-felted roving balls, "for the baby". These are quickly becoming a favorite. The weight and size of the balls is perfect, and wrapping them in yarn scraps makes them a treat for the eyes. I'm addicted.

A wee bunny:

And a nature mobile for the boys' bedroom (to help convince us that spring truly might be around the corner...)
(I can't take credit for the Spring Fairy. She is beautifully made by the lovely people at MapleRose)

What is keeping your hands busy these days?

Date Night

Some local theatre, and sorbetto. With one of my favorite people. A truly lovely way to spend a Friday evening.
