Stitchy Update

I finished stitching another mitten this week!! I really like doing these small projects along side the larger ones as it helps to feel like you are actually accomplishing something with all the time it takes. Here are the projects I've been working on lately...
The mitten is Nordic Reindeer by Bent Creek and the other is 'May Wordplay' by Brenda Gervais. I'm changing it to a 'Spring Wordplay' by leaving out the word 'May' and this will become a seasonal series that I'm making for my mother-in-law. The plan is to have this one done by her birthday (early April) and the Summer one done (I'm using the August Wordplay for that one) by Mother's Day. I'll figure out the others as I go.

I also played around a little with my blog's header picture. I think it looks nice and ready for spring!! :0) Hope you like it too!!

I probably won't have a knitting update this week as I'm still just working on the baby shawl and it doesn't look much different than last week. I hope to have it finished in the next week or two, it is at the half way point right now. Then I can start something new!!! I'm already planning for the possibilities:) 

However, I should have some project bag progress to show off at the end of the week. I worked a little on a couple of them this weekend, but then had to put everything away as we had company yesterday. Daughter has a class today that I need to go to as well, so I probably won't get to it today, but the next few days should be mostly uninterrupted, so I plan to finish up a couple of them and maybe get a few more cut out and ready to go. Goodness knows I have enough projects on the needles to fill them up!! Once I have a bit more practice sewing them up I may do a give-away on my blog;) So keep an eye out for that!!

Well, it's time to start getting ready to leave for the day. I hope you all have a lovely day and can fit a bit of 'making' into it:)
