Softie book

Softies are coming from this charming Japanese book.  The instructions are clear and the outfits cute.  Makes a great baby gift.  If you can avoid making them look possessed.  Catherine, I can't wait to see those turtles made!

Tail-less-Monkey above (Spo thinks it looks like Hannibal Lector, maybe not a good friend for a child.)

First attempts at making softies from socks. the elephant is ugly.  the monkey has no tail.  Softies might not be my big talent.

Couch redone



After only 100 bucks on fabric, we turned an ugly "western" couch into a crazy cool couch. oh yeah...

Owl practice

I have been experimenting with softies.  I think this will eventually become three dimensional.  For now it just hangs on our cloth board.

Patchwork Curtains

These curtains started as a blanket I was making for my sister's wedding.  Three years later, the blanket morphed into kitchen curtains.  I was originally working off a pattern, so half is borrowed, half is original.  They make much better curtains than blanket.  I ended up giving my sister I huge pan.

makes our kitchen a little friendlier
