Introducing Carrots!

One of the wonderful things about having Madison is seeing the world through her. So many new things! This week we introduced carrots, which I also love. I have to say that this is the only thing I have "made" over the last week.
I am using the Baby Bullet system, which is not just cute, but convenient. I ordered it when I was pregnant with Madison and so excited to finally use it!

I am also working on a new crochet stuffed animal. Not sure what it will be yet, but find it's something easy to work on while Madison plays.
My other project is to finish a quilt I started probably over a year ago, will take pictures of the progress and show it here.
I got rid of a ton of scraps. I decided I needed to get rid of fabric I will never use so that I can make room for the fabric I really want to use. Check back to see what I made room for, so cute!

Happy Crafty New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!
I want to start the New Year off right, with a blog post! One of my new year's resolution is to revitalize my blog.
Now that my baby girl Madison is six months old, I have a little more time to finally craft.

One of the things I made for Christmas was a wreath for our door. I wrapped a Styrofoam wreath in white yarn. I then accented it with red hydrangea petals.

The hydrangea was velvety, with sparkles dotted on its petals. I originally bought the hydrangea for Madison's headband that she wore for our family pictures.

The other project I started was making tutu's for Madison. A little girl can never have too many! When I visited my mom in Oregon recently she gave me a bunch of tulle she wasn't using. I just learned how to make the very simple tutu, and did a cute mix of peach, plum and cream colored tulle accented with a muted purple ribbon.

It was hard to get a picture of Madison not trying to eat the tutu, but here it is on her!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year! Yeah 2012!
