I'm going to pick out the rest of the jeweled buttons this weekend. I figure I can complete the clutches hopefully in the next month. I still need to sew them together, felt and decorate them.
In sewing news, this past weekend I cut out material for 4 pairs of pajama pants. I sewed 2 of them up. I made the fi try his on and they are a little snug in the hip area. I know I measured him correctly. He's very stocky, and wants his pants very loose, so I'm going to have to cut the hip and butt area a little larger on the next pair. The second pair I made are for my mom. Those turned out perfect (hello, I want to keep them lol). I just need to hem them. I hope I didn't make the waistband to tight.
The remaining items finally arrived in the mail for my secret pal. One item was coming from the UK. I was able to ship my package off to her on Monday. I hope she likes what I got her. I received my package from my secret pal Amy last Thursday. I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! Thank you soooo much!! By the way if you're reading this, I already ate the Swedish Fish. So, this is what Amy sent me.
Louisa Harding's new book Knitting Little Luxuries. It came out in November. Swedish Fish, Good & Plenty, a coin purse with stitch markers and blocking pins, row counter (I can also use these as stitch markers), 3 hanks of mango moon (love it), an ornament for my christmas tree, 3 pot holders and a beautiful mini storage suitcase, which by the way, I stole your idea. I went to Joann's and sent one to my secret pal. It has an autumn theme on it.
In other knitting updates, I started on the sleeves for the shawl collar sweater for my mom. I hope to have pictures up by the weekend.
I want to make/sew myself a dress. I should go through my patterns. Like I really have time ( 3 jobs, a wedding to finishing planning). I need 3 heads and 20 arms. What am I thinking.
In wedding news, after the holidays I definitely need to get back to the wedding knitting. I also need to get busy on the wedding invites as I need to send them out soon. Can anyone give me advice on cutting an invite list from like 138 to 100, especially when I've known these people for practically almost all my life. I don't think it's going to happen. The sad part is the fi only has about 25 people on that list. It's bad... Oh well, enough of my complaining. I'll try to have another post up by the weekend with more pics. Have a good one.
