Look What I Won!

A few weeks ago I began reading the blog Happy Find. Venus hosted a giveaway last week, and I won this sweet little pincushion.

Thanks, Venus! I can't wait to get it.

Jacket Refashion

A couple of years ago I coached for a team that I'm no longer working with, but we coaches had purchased these nice warm fleece jackets with the team's name on them. I've discovered that this jacket is one of the only ones I have that stretches around my growing belly, but I don't want to advertise for this team anymore.

So.... I used this tutorial to fix up my jacket with a pretty ranunculus. I can't wait to try more of these on other things. I think it's pretty cute!

Here is a before shot of the jacket. I followed the tutorial's instructions and just stitched right to the jacket.

New Hats!

I made new hats for Ava and me over the weekend. I used super bulky yarn and size 15 needles, so these came together really quickly. I need to make them both a little longer so that our ears stay warm this winter, but first I need to learn how to pick up stitches. More information is on my Ravelry page.
