Sortie

Hello Sis,

I just finished two Sortie caps this week. They are from Godey’s Magazine, 1858. They turned out so much prettier than I expected. I still don’t know which one I like better!

Playing Outside

Dear Sis,

Mr. Baby loves outdoor sights and sounds. We usually take a walk each day, but that isn’t always enough to keep us from feeling cooped up. Today I had a new idea that will be a good fit for us in Mr. Baby’s new stage of infancy: outside time on a blanket.

Love & Drooly Baby Kisses,

Dear Sis,

Little is 7! Time to PARTY!!!

Wooden Airplane to Paint

…because all kids like to play in paint!

Pin the Propellor on the Plane

I draw and painted the plane, then made propellors our of craft foam. Each propellor has a piece of double sides sticky tape, so the kids can peel and stick the propellors… blindfolded of course:)

Knitted Opera or Traveling Hood

Hey Sis,

Remember this hood I started weeks ago! I finally finished it today. It is a stripped knitted hood that was featured in Godey’s Magazine, in 1862. The first hood I made was to small, and this one ended up a bit bigger than I would have chosen. But, it is certainly striking and definitely the warmest hood I have made so far!

 

Love,

Happy Valentine’s Day

Dear Sis,

Josh and I went to the Littles school parties today. Baby was quite a drawl in the first grade classroom. He was practically mobbed by kiddos. “He’s so cute!” they squealed while they pet his hair, or tested his strong grip. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love,

Another Hood, or Two for the Shop

Hi Sis,

Thankfully, I did manage to finish one thing for the shop this week. It is another braided hood.

 

I also, started a red hood on Saturday night, and finished in Sunday afternoon!

Hood Fail

All I could see was the front of the hood as I tied it on in front of the mirror. Nate however, took one look at it and said, “That looks cheap, I don’t think you should sell it. ” I didn’t expect this hood to really complete with my other style, but I figured it would be nice to have a cheaper hood alternative. However, after the photos, I have to agree. The hood style doesn’t function well as a hood, as it doesn’t stop cold air from getting to your head. And it looks terrible in the back. Sure, happy I cut up a scrap piece of wool, and not the pretty ruby red melton wool!

Looks good here. Then, I turn around.

I could fix the pattern. I think a little elastic around the frame of the face, and putting the hood casing up higher, and shortening the hood would make it nicer. But, frankly I don’t think it is worth the effort. 

Love,

Jamiegoof
