I love this time of the year, especially when we hadn't made any concrete plans. With the public holidays and the extra couple of days I had off work between Christmas and New Year, I got into some fun crafty stuff... although of course I could have been tidying up the craft room/ office or tackle the 3 months worth of filing etc... but what's the fun in that!?
The Sunnyside baby cardigan is making good progress! I really don't know how big a 6-12 months baby girl is so I am just winging it - nothing like a surprise :)
Just to mix things up a bit, I decided to have a go at making a couple of new origamis. The Santa is a design by Jacky Chan via this video and the Swallowtail butterfly is a design by Evi Binzinger and demonstrated by Leyla Torres.
I started sketching for a new bag pattern... I got the first draft of the pattern pieces cut out so hopefully I get to start on some sewing soon!
Lastly, I have actually made this little softie last week but not wanting to blog about the finished project just yet. It is a gift for a friend I am catching up with soon so just in case she happens to read the blog before we meet up... so more about this later!
It's going to be great year - I can feel it!!
