For a variety of reasons I won't go into, I took a blogging break. But I've decided I would like to get back in the swing of things. It's nice to have a record of all my handmade goodies, and I like sharing them with you.
First of all - I made some new shirts using heat transfer. The front of the shirts have an H5 on the pocket spot. We are kind of geeky and like math problems around our house... can you solve this one?
Goodie bags were a detective kit - ID tag, disguise glasses, magnifying glass, flashlight they could decorate, and a little notebook & pen - all kept in a black box. They played a few games to "earn" the parts of their detective kit, and then ended with a scavenger hunt around the house to find the goodies for their ice cream sundaes.
I know it's horribly out of order, but I'll post about Halloween costumes tomorrow and Abby's Olivia the Pig birthday party as well. As for Easter - I have no handmade goodies to share because honestly I was rushing and didn't measure well and by the time I was done with the dress I realized the bodice was way too big for her. I'm hoping she grows into it by her brother's baptism later this summer.
There were a few Christmas projects made for my nieces and a dress for my daughter that will go undocumented unless I can find those pictures somewhere. I just need to move forward and show you all the goodies I'm working on now! I have three quilts in progress, a purse for my mom, a couple spring dresses for Abby, and a couple baby things for our June firefly.
Thanks for sticking around - I'll see you again soon!
