Hello there! I had meant to update much sooner, but life has just had me busy, busy, busy! It is late, and I am pretty tired, so this probably won't be too long of an entry. But I did want to share a couple of things I have finished up recently. The first one is a dragon I made for my daughter's eighth birthday. She loves dragons and wanted to have a dragon themed birthday party, so I thought this was a fitting present.
I made this little lady with King Cole Flash in the color Apricot. My daughter decided to name her "April," since that is when her birthday is. I love, love, love this yarn, and I'm looking forward to finding something else to use it for. The solid colored pieces are Stylecraft DK in Spice and Plum. They blended together wonderfully. It was a LOT of little stitches, and my fingers were pretty achy after all was said and done. At the end of the day, she loves her dragon, and I love seeing her so happy with it! The pictures are a little yellow, but I've since replaced my phone, so hopefully here on out my pictures will look much better.
My kids' school has a carnival every year and there are always raffle baskets with a theme given away as prizes. I wanted to donate something handmade, but I was kind of short on time. My son's class had a theme of "Spa Night," so I made a little package up that had two facial cloths, a back scrubber, and two candles in cosies. I felt bad that I didn't have time to make something super stunning, but they turned out pretty good and are hopefully being enjoyed. My picture only shows one candle, but I made another in purple.
