I just had to show this picture I took in early February. SB and GH are looking longingly in the side of the summer toy bin. They haven't played with those toys since Oct/Nov.
Sadly there's just as much snow on the bin now as there was in Feb. *sigh* I know spring is coming any day now but it sure is taking its time! I guess there's not too much I can do about it is there?
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

This is a pixie hat with booties. About 4-6 mths size although the hat nearly fit my 22 mth old daycare girl.

Yesterday I whipped these up at nap time. My cousin Charlene, her husband, and their two children were coming through town for a quick visit. I'd never met their youngest, who's one and a half, and I kinda missed the boat on a baby gift for her when she was born.
So using some seersucker fabric I got for a dollar or two at a garage sale I made a sundress and a pair of shorts. I dressed up a shirt to go with the set and Voila! a couple lovely summer outfits.
I've had those buttons for years and finally found the perfect use for them!
Then I decided to make something for their oldest. I had this extra shirt left over from the daycare Christmas gifts so I made him a tie shirt. Nice and simple. :o) Too bad the picture is so bad. The tie is made out of a dark green plaid.
To top it all off I threw a couple books in the bag to keep them busy on the long drive back home. I love being able to throw together a gift like that from things I have around the house. I didn't have to go out and buy a single thing - not even the books because I have a whole rubbermaid container of books to give away as gifts. :o)

As a result of all that you get a one year old who has a blast outside even in the -15C weather (that's pretty warm for us) and she did NOT want to quit when her mom came to pick her up. :o)
I did make some bean bags for a friends 3 yr old son's birthday though.
These are so cute! I've had a few people ask if I'd sell them. I'm not sure if I want to get into that or not.
This time I made a bag for him to hold them in.
No pictures of the finished quilts yet. We'll get together in a couple weeks and take a picture or two I'm sure. We still have a whole box left so we're talking about doing another saturday in March. Should be fun!
