"Bootie-licious" (or pics to go with my last post)

Seth and Maryn in their Christmas Sunday clothes. Seth looks pretty happy doesn't he? To see more pics of our holiday times, click here. We also had some fun times with Wendy, click here to see those pics. Our family with Darth Vader at the Star Wars exhibit, for more pics of this fun trip, click here.Now onto pictures of the projects I have completed this past month (in random order). (For a few more pics of these projects, click here.) First- a hat for Wendy. She bought the fancy-schmancy yarn and I crocheted it, we added cute little pom-poms to the end of the earflaps later.
A hat for Annie. Unfortunately, it was too small by the time it made it to her house (three weeks after I sent it, thank you postal service). See her wear it here. A hat for Ellena. This one fit because I had Jonas to try it on. See her wear it here.
Mary Jane slipper booties for Annie, made intentionally big so as not to run into the preivous problem. Jonas modeled these too. See them received here.



And finally, a collaborative effort. Wendy cable knitted the front two panels and I crocheted the border, made the flower, and put the whole thing together. I was surprised that she actually put it on for the picture, she won't wear it more than a few seconds.

Projects not shown- a red sparkly scarf and white hat with huge pom-pom for Carlie and camo-colored booties for Jonas. I'm currently working on some blue sneaker booties for Jonas also.

You may be asking yourself- when does she have to time do all of this and keep her house clean, her family fed and still get some sleep? The answer is- I don't. That's what hobbies are all about, right? :)

I LOVE your hats! I wish I could crochet...I am impaired. I can knit, just haven't done it for a while.

I love the shaw (how do you spell that word!) Maryn is wearing. What a great talent to have. If I send you some yarn, will you make one for Meghan?

Martha, I mean Tina, these turned out great. What a great talent. Guess you get to do stuff like that when you don't have me hanging out all the time huh?
