This lovely book has brought renewed inspiration into our house lately.
I can't say that we've actually made anything from the book, but it has been a long time since the girls have sat down to craft together. This project involved leather scraps, buttons, ribbons, and who knows what.
A couple of hats have made it off the needles. This on is the beehive hat by Linda Romens. The pattern is available on Ravelry.
This hat, Helen's favorite, is the Alpine Topper available at Halcyon Yarn.
My winter project is a crochet afghan. I'm smitten with crochet right now. I first saw this one-a-day blanket at Little Cotton Rabbits. I am teaching myself and making lots of mistakes since Simmy first started me on crochet while we were in England.
Even Nelson has been puttering about with weekend crafting. He's been building racks for the canoe and kayaks.
We are all starting to get inspired for Handmade Christmas. I've been hunting about online for ideas and came across this necklace at Martha Stewart made from pantyhose and bouncy balls. I think NOT.
