The random mid-May post

Hello folks. Long time no post!

I don't have much to post at the moment, but thought I'd share a few random tidbits with you. First - these little Swedish baby booties I made for my nephew:

And they are reversible! But, I'm sad to say that I only made 1 booty because by the time I finished it he had outgrown it. I still think it's pretty cute though.

Second item of business, this cross stitch piece my grandma has at her house, I love it. It reminds me of my grandma. I've been super into cross stitch these days, my mom found some of her old kits that she bought but never made so I've been plugging away at them. I'll post my progress one of these days.

Does anyone know where you can find a stamped cross stitch kit (that's a cute pattern? I love the old samplers but can't find any!!)? I can't find one for the life of me, and I'm usually pretty good at finding craft supplies. Hmmm...

And lastly, I'm getting married in one month to this handsome guy - woah baby!

(picture from the Tokyo airport, we hadn't slept in a while...)


  1. I have an idea for you! Set the little bootie out on St. Nicholas Eve! It is perfect. Or turn it into an ornament. If I turned my very first practice knitted bootie into an ornament - you can too!

    I will keep an eye open for your cross stitch. Thrift stores are a good bet - if you are lucky. I just found a Jiffy kit (crewel embroidery 70's) - so you never know.

    Very handsome guy. Beautiful bride. Somebody I love had better be sharing pictures in a month! :-)

  2. Brilliant ornament idea for the bootie, that is perfect! I'll just add some yarn and maybe even stamp his first Christmas year on the reversible side.

    I didn't even think about thrift stores either for cross stitch, I'll have to check out the local ones here! I might have better luck with those in CA though, we'll see!

    I'll be sure to post some pictures, it's coming so fast! :)
