I really do love being busy, as long as it's a productive kind of busy.
Atop a bunch of other things, here are some of the productive things I've finished in the past couple of days.
I got these pajamas done! They were a custom order. She fell in love with the Olivia the Pig fabric so her pajama bottoms and the cuffs on her pajama top are done in that fabric (flannel). The pants have red cuffs. She wanted pockets and a side-closing mandarin collar so I drafted the pattern and voila:
Embroidery on the collar was done by hand. So were the frog buttons.
In other news, I got one of two kitchen towels done for a friend.
Modified a design from subversive cross stitch and put it in the colors she wanted. I had to dye the towels.
I'm feeling slightly accomplished today :)
In other news, feel like entering a contest for a book on knitting your own socks? Craftgossip is running another giveaway, this time for the book Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn. Go and enter!
