More of What I Do
I suppose I wanted to "toot my own horn" but I thought I would share what I made Daxton and Veda for their first birthdays. The above is a sweater vest and matching bow tie I made Dax. I think he looks rather handsome in this set:
And for the Vedabug I made her a cabled owl sweater:
It would be really adorable if I sewed buttons on all the owl eyes, but I am not certain that is such a good idea for a child still young enough to want to eat carpet fiber from the floor. I could also embroider the owl faces, but that just sounded like too much work and my embroidery is not very good. The bottom line is that I like the sweater as is, and I am proud of it, and if I attempt to do anything else to it I may not like it as much. Besides, she still looks pretty gosh darn cute in it. Cute enough, in fact, that she had her one year pictures taken today wearing this sweater.
We live in the country and have a little zoo: Three indoor cats (Audrey, Edgar, and Orange), too many outdoor cats, and our little parrot lovebird named Duncan. Our daughter, Sylvia, was born in October 2008; our second daughter, Veda, was born in January 2010; and our third daughter, Guinevere "Evvie," was born November 2011.
