I have to have deadlines, ‘assignments’ if you will, in order to get things done. I learned this after we moved here. I didn’t have friends, family, school, job or kids to keep me occupied. You’d think I’d spend all that time working on my art, arts & crafts projects, cooking nice meals, etc. Oh no. I slept for almost 6 months straight.
Which means, if I don’t make it to a baby shower, bridal shower or any sort of gift-giving event, I have ZERO motivation to work on a present. Translation: I missed a friend’s baby shower in August. I just finished making the gift and gave it to her on Saturday. I’m such a dork.
My friend’s little boy is 4 months old, and catching up to Penelope quickly, so I made a Kimono that fits Penelope, and maybe baby Will will be able to wear the fuzzy sweater more than once before he’s too big. I like how it turned out. The fleece made the project easy for finishing, and great for this kind of wet-cold weather we’ve been having recently.
Want to make your own? HERE’S THE TUTORIAL. It’s fabulous.
