I Love Sewing and Knitting! ❤

These past few weeks, in addition to working way too many shifts (at my “part-time” job… grrrrr!), I have been madly crafting some organic, bamboo velour cloth diapers for a dear friend of my eldest Elfling. It’s been awesome! :0)

I made 14 diapers for her with some of my hand-dyed organic, bamboo velour; organic, cotton velour; and two different weights of fleece (200wt Wind-Pro and fuzzy). Each diaper has an inner of luxuriously-soft, organic, bamboo velour. Yum! 

This one is my absolute favourite diaper. Squish!

I’ve also been knitting like crazy! My Elflings insist I’m a robot, because they’re certain no real human could knit as fast. I assure them I’ve seen people knit much faster than I. ;0)

This is so exciting! I have a crazy-large stash of wool that I’m finally making time to work through.

Here’s a pic of some of the set I put together.

I just adore the colorway (Deep Space by Mosaic Moon) of this set. It’s bright but gender neutral, and so cozy!

Here’s a pic of the sweet, baby boy wearing the sweater. I have permission to share this photo, and I am super-excited to show how much cuter the sweater actually looks when worn by such an adorable, little person as this wee Elfling. Awwwwwe! ❤

Day 18 ~ What I collect:

I collect a few things, but I have a rather large collection (ok, it’s actually a horde) of wool from when I was knitting soakers for babies, sweaters, seasonal clothing, and commissions for friends, family, and customers. I love to knit for friends, family, and customers. Here are two things I have on the needles now:

All Hallows and Yoda WIPs

I’m also in the process of indulging a new obsession of collecting tattoos! Like this one, my LOTR-based script, “Not all those who wander lost,” tattoo.

The cutest tattoo I will likely ever have, Baby Cthulhu.

Watch out for the Beast of Caerbannog!

And my most beautiful tattoo, Elsa Lanchester, as The Bride of Frankenstein.

Day 6 ~ My 5 senses right now:

  1. Sight – I’m watching my youngest Elflings play creatively while I type.
  2. Sound – I can hear a movie my Mister is watching behind me.
  3. Taste – I’m sipping on a 600mL beaker-full of Mean Green juice.
  4. Smell – I can smell the trees on the breeze coming through my window.
  5. Touch – I’ve got my favourite organic, bamboo velour blanket on my lap.
