How's it going?

Sorry I haven't been writing.   Been so busy/distracted with going to the hospital, Dr. appointments, and getting things all set for the kiddos going back to school.  So sad that it's that time already.  I miss them so much!

Dr. said I should rest when I can, so I've been able to get some crafting done during my 'downtime' :)  I've been working on hexies (surprise surprise) and I've gotten quite a few made and stitched together this weekend.  I have a bunch of projects involving hexies, so any chance I get, I work on them!

I've also been knitting a scarf for my mom-in-law for Christmas.  Not finished with it yet, but getting there.  It's so soft and pretty. I love it, and hope she does too!

I'm still working on a lot of toy projects, as my littlest one's birthday is coming up, and of course Christmas.  Play food, doll clothes and accessories, linen and calico stuffies and playsets, etc.

This is from one of the play sets I'm making.

I have to finish embroidering them, then I'm going to sew them to the backings and stuff them. I think everything is turning out beautifully so far. Once I finish all the pieces to the set, I'll definately post pics!

I cut out some of the pieces for the gazillion strawberries I'm making.  These are just the top parts.

My littlest one likes the itty bitty felt ones I made so much, but she says she needs a million a gigantic basket.... and they can't just be red.  There HAS to be red, and blue and purple and pink!  So, I'm making as many as I can before her birthday, in all different sizes, in the colors she wants.  I think she's going to be really surprised!  Will post pics when I'm finished with these as well.

Well, hope everyone is having a great summer.  It's not quite over yet, so lets enjoy it while we can!!!
