I made the medium size blanket following the pattern from https://yarnutopia.com/tag/mermaid-blanket/ her pattern and instructional video are great.

To use up as much of the yarn as possible I did 3 extra rows before starting the final 10 rows, however I feel I could have done even 3 more but it would have been close to running out of yarn all together.

I know it’s big but she might want to curl up with her big sister or mom so I tried to make room for both.

Emily’s Christmas gift is a mermaid blanket

I used Red heart Soft 3 balls of Lilac 256 yds each, 3 balls of Grape 256 yds each and 5 balls of Plummy 204 yds each, however I could have only used 4 but I wanted the tail to be thicker so I double yarned it.

I made the large size blanket following the pattern from https://yarnutopia.com/tag/mermaid-blanket/ her pattern and instructional video are great.

To use up as much of the yarn as possible I did a total of 84 rows before starting the final 10 rows.

I know it’s long but I feel Emily is going to be very tall.

Jett’s and Cameron’s Christmas gift is a shark blanket

I made 3 Jellyfish for kids 1 and under. I used 100% cotton yarn (like the kids dishcloths are made from) so they are easy to wash.

Cute Tax Deduction shirts

Standard

A few months ago I purchased some shirts I wanted to decorate for Emil, Charlie and Isabella but took too long now I don’t know if they will fit them.

The one originally for Emily is now way to small for her so that moved over to Isabella however she will have to grow into it….lol The one for Charlie we will to see if it fits…if NOT I guess it will move order to Aiden…..next time I need to get cracking on the shirts when I buy them.

In the mean time what do you think?

We made a total of 18 but mom said she only had room for 3 on her tree. I can’t put 15 on my tree so look out people some of you might be getting new ornaments for Christmas.

Screen Printing class at Living Arts Centre

Standard

So today I took a Screen Printing class today with my friend Margaret at Living Arts Centre http://www.livingartscentre.ca/

It was so much fun and the teacher Kim was very organized, informative and everything ran on time which I love.

Here is a photo of the screen print I made. I think my flower looks like it came from an alien planet….but still cute.
