new year

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Mine was full of children and food, just the way I like it!! Now, I am slowly getting back into the routine of daily life...the boys are back to school, and Isabella and I are preparing for potty training. The year seems to be starting off in slow motion for me.
There has been no sewing going on in my house, I honestly miss it....but it has become quite difficult to persuade my little Bella to let me sew. She is in a cling to mommy mode, which I have totally indulged myself in. Since I have teenagers, I know how precious and short lived, these younger years of a childhood are. I have managed to get a bit of crocheting done though.

I finished this infinity scarf for my sister this week, as a late Christmas gift. I used a stitch pattern that I found on Raverly by mon petit violon. The original pattern was for a cowl, but I really liked the idea of an infinity scarf....the stitching worked out perfectly.

Then I decided to make a matching flower clip that she could either attach to the scarf or wear in her hair. Once that was done, I started working on this adorable hat for my daughter....

I found this pattern on a wonderful blog called Vallieskids. She has a few great hat patterns on her blog, that are not only adorable, but really easy to follow. Isabella loved her new hat, and now wants Mommy to maker her lots more!!

I love black and white photos, although I don't usually use them on my blog because you can't see the colors....but this one was meant to be.


  1. such an adorable hat. i love the scarf. what pattern did you use? WOuld you mind sharing the link?

  2. Sorry about that Leslie, I meant to add it in, but was in a hurry. I was trying to finish before my daughter was done eating....multi tasking. I added in the link for you on the original post.

  3. I love b & w photos, too. And she looks so cute in that hat! My daughter has always looked adorable in any hat -- and she still does at 21!
