Festive Projects

I've been sewing. Nothing major, just a couple of quick projects. I have my next sewing project planned out, but I cannot find the stinkin' pattern. I dug through all of my sewing stuff last night and it's no where to be found. I guess I'll just have to buy it again. I'll look through everything once more before I do that though. Grrrrr.

Placemats that are supposed to look like Christmas Ornaments and a little fabric basket. I told you it was nothing too exciting. :p I just love that little fabric basket. It's quick and easy. It would make a great gift filled with some baked goods, don'tcha think? Wanna make one yourself? Here's how.
I snapped a few pictures of Liberty jumping on the trampoline. She loves to jump. She seriously needs a hair-cut. I just love her hair though. She's 4.5 and has never had a hair-cut. We keep saying we're going to do it, but I just can't make myself get it done! The current plan is to get it done when we're in NY for Christmas. The stylist who cut Mikayla and Benjamin's hair is there, so we might as well stick with tradition, eh? We'll see. I still have time to change my mind. :p

While I was snapping photos, I should have taken a picture of the February Lady Sweater. It's going quite well! The thing I'm struggling with now is, how long do I make it? Since it's not for me, I can't just try it on. Mom is a few inches shorter than I am. So, anyone who has made a size large and is about 5'4" care to tell me how long they made the body before blocking?

Is the gift a surprise? You could ask your mom for the length, shoulder to waist of her fav. sweater or shirt. That might give you a good idea for what she would appreciate in the FLS. Oh, and in answer to your question, yes, I am knitting one too. =) Good eye!
