I've been keeping myself busy the past few months with my crafts. I find that if I don't do a little bit of craft everyday I feel as if I haven't accomplished anything. Knitting a few rows, sewing a seam or two or cutting out fabric makes me feel as though I DID something that day. (Besides cooking, cleaning, laundry and mothering of course.)

A scarf for Kaisha
Slippers for Kaisha
Elephants for Coen
I'm making a mobile for Coen with these Elephants. I saw a similar mobile for $50 and thought that was a bit ridiculous. That was until I started hand sewing them!

And for the grand finale!
Kaisha's quilt top
I have finally finished piecing Kaisha's quilt top. I'm going tomorrow to try and find a backing fabric. Then it will be time to actually quilt it which I'm a bit freaked out about! I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Idea's anyone?
