check. check.

I haven’t been blogging much. I have all these ideas for posts, but really, it’s just not a priority. I really do miss it, though. It’s the last thing that’s on my to-do list everyday, but since today I have a little down-time I thought I’d show you 2 of the most recent things I’ve checked off my list & made [& it’s 2 more things that I’ve actually started & completed…yay for my 28-to-do-list!].

I joined a Handmade Gift Exchange on Craftaholics Anonymous & I made this scarf for my partner. To be honest, when it was done I almost kept it for myself I liked it so much. I think I’m going to have to make one for myself in the near future.  I’m thinking with a lime green instead of the red, though…what do you think?

I also finally finished this super cute & soft blanket for a good friend of mine. She is pregnant & having a girl in January & I am so excited for her! I couldn’t resist these soft colors & the soft yarn [I really wish you could feel it, it’s amazing].

So there you have it…for now…

hello blog, how i’ve missed you.

this month has been ridiculously busy & i’m just now getting time [since both my boys are asleep] to sit down and reflect on what i’ve been up to & do some much needed photo editing.

i’m really trying to follow #9 of my “28 to-do-list”, which is to finish every project that i start. i’ve actually been able to follow through on a few things [i’m still working on a ton of stuff] so here’s what i’ve been up to.

i recovered some 2 of our throw pillows in our living room to add some much needed color. our couches are beige, our walls are beige, our furniture is light wood…the blandness was driving me crazy. hoping to incorporate some more red into the room, i think it’ll make it really fun.

my niece is addicted to a crocheted blanket that was given to her as a gift when she was born. unfortunately, it’s a little large for her to tote around everywhere so i made her a small blanket to carry around. it’s still not the same as her favorite, but it’s growing on her.

one of  hubby’s cousins just had a super cute baby girl & i really wanted to take her something when we first met her. i hadn’t sewed a blanket in awhile so it’s really not the best i’ve ever sewed, but i think the super cute fabric makes up for my lack of perfection.

i still have LOTS that i’m working on & trying to get finished before malachi gets here [only 6 weeks left!] so i hope to update you all soon!
