I finished a project for the Ravellenic Games and 'won' a 'medal' in Shawl Sailing.
And here's the shawl!
It was Sara's birthday present, which is why I wasn't updating twice a day to talk about my opinions on the yarn and my needles and my anxiety over time constraints. But I finished it in just the nick of time and even had a little time left over to decorate the apartment in a beautiful and classy style.
|Let's be honest: you and I both know this banner is still hanging. Evelyn loves it.|
|Ice cream cake and party favor bags! Sara loved her party.|
|Just a couple of party girls reading about dinosaurs.|
|Look at everyone having a great time! Chad built puzzles and played with Quackers.|
|This is what Levi does every time he comes over.|
|Sara got to hold the birthday bear while she and Chad played catch.|
Laine and Robert missed out on the fun this time, but I'm glad I was able to remember to take a few pictures. Between the personal crafting challenges and Lisa Frank decor adorning my walls, I knew this was stuff precious memories are made of. Well, that and blog posts.
Oh! I guess I should mention that Sara really liked her shawl and I showed her how to wear it as a scarf. She's a big scarf person and I wanted to try this pattern, so we were both happy with the project. Yay!
