Looking Ahead

This time of year gets me itching to start new projects. There are so many I want to tackle... If only there were time! I'm swamped sprucing up and adding products to my Ellie & Liv hair accessories shop and preparing to participate in a craft show. In between chasing Ellie (who is walking full steam ahead!) and running Olivia to soccer, ballet, and other school activities, I need every spare minute with my glue gun. :)
In the meantime, I am dreaming of some new sewing and knitting projects. Here's what has me swooning these days.

I cast on for this sweater - Debbie Bliss Ribbed Baby Jacket - and knit on it while Olivia is in dance class. It's for Ellie - I'm using a dark brown Cascade washable wool and thinking a large hot pink button will be just right.

I really, really want to make this Feather Quilt by Anna Maria Horner. She has impeccable taste. The image below is from her shop where you can purchase the kit.

I also want to make Olivia and me each a scarf from AMH's shop. Seems like a reasonable splurge, right?

Also on the quilt front, I'd love to make one of my friend, Heather's quilts. The Ohio Super Nova is so striking - and I like how large the quilt is with not much piecing involved.

Lately, I've been in the mood to make my girls some clothes and am tempted to try using knits. I'm inspired by Too Sweet Pattern's designs... 

I could really go on and on... I have more ideas than time. But, then, doesn't everyone have that problem?

Have a great weekend!

  1. That feather quilt is absolutely wonderful!! I want to make it too, so bad. But I need to finish the king spiderweb I've got going first, before I start another dang thing LOL. Hope all is well - I see you're keeping busy!
