it's the little things

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Sometimes it is all about the little things. A little hat that I was commissioned to make. From the book knittng for peace.

A little snack bag for Libby. Blair made one over at wise craft. I knew it was right up Libby's alley. I used a Martha Stewart dish towel to make the bag, had Libby write "snack" on a piece of paper, pinned the paper to the fabric, and embroidered over her writing. It is now her most favorite thing that I have ever made her! EVER!

And, a little pile of loose ends from the vest. Hopefully, a little photo shoot today after school.
Remember, enjoy the little things.

  6. Ooh, I love the hat and the snack bag! Is that the EZ hat? Libby is the luckiest little girl Ev-ah! It IS all about the little things. Today, for me, it was a lunch hour filled with making felted acorns. So satisfying!

  9. What a great environmentally thoughtful bag. What brand of waxed paper do you use? Totally ingenious. I fell in love with that hat one of the last times you knit it. It knits flat then pulls into a hat form right? You always impress me.

    Hi,

    I am all ready to make your yummy apple cinnamon cake and wondered about the 6 oz. of cream cheese. Can you use an 8 oz. package maybe?

    Thanks!
