I decided to take a few crochet orders for the Christmas season after all, which means I've (thankfully) had very busy hands the past few weeks. However, I saw this adorable craft by Rachel at Maybe Matilda and just knew I had to make it with Emma.
I followed her instructions step-by-step and the whole process went like a breeze. Well, except for the fact that little hands want to close, wave around and touch things when paint is all over them... and it took me forever and a dang day to thread an embroidery needle. Other than that, it truly was a cinch! We even made a shirt AND three kitchen towels, two of which are gifts. Gee, I wonder who the luck adoring women in her life are that can look forward to receiving them? ;)
Aaaaaand, of course, we had to girly things up a bit with a matching hair now. Am I going to be out of control when Chloe arrives or what?!
Finally, what would a cute craft post be without plenty of cute pictures to go along with it? I know you all hardly get to see any photographs of Emma and have been begging me to post more.
(If you didn't pick up on the sarcasm, just know that I am incredibly dangerous with a camera. And cute little girls. And my brand new Canon Rebel. Yeah.)
Speaking of a picture-taking addiction, my Picasa account has informed me that my free 1GB of space is full. I tried deleting a few albums but that didn't seem to help. If anyone knows a way around the system, so that I can avoid paying a monthly fee, please let me know. I'd rather not have to copy and paste image URLs from Facebook for every.single.post.
Have a wonderful turkey day, everyone!
