Just not blogging about it. The finger is healing up faster than I thought, but typing isn't so easy - you'll read the corrected version of this entry, but rest assured - 30 years of typing is pretty ingrained in your hands - they don't want to switch keys at this point in the game.
So, onto the projects -- Maya's added to her sewing accomplishments with the Puppy Pillow above. The same baby that got the little hat and Anouk was the reciepient for this guy. Maya picked the fabric and did all the sewing, and she was soooo proud to gift little Ailee her Puppy.
Ailee's grandma made sure she napped on it while the party was still going on.
Proud Maya got all the kudos she deserved from her aunts and uncles - I think she'll be sewing gifts again soon....
As for me,
I've been working away on the Ella Rae cardigan. I love how this yarn is working up - the Louisa Harding Nautical Cotton - It's so soft and has a little texture in it, so the sweater has an almost organic quality that works really well (or at least I think so...) with the pattern. This is a shot of one bobble-less front and most the back. I have a few sets of the vintage buttons on call for when she's done - just as the weather starts to turn.....
