What I’ve Been Up To…

Today has been one of those sleeping-in-rainy-day sort of days, and I thought it would be a good day for an update.

By this time, you have already seen glimpses of a lot of the things I have been working on.

To start with, there were the first few bag tags I made …

Followed by the 5 tags to launch my Etsy store, The Golden Heel …

And with the first purchase from The Golden Heel came my exploration into packaging/gift bags….

Then with excitement I finished a bathrobe for my friend’s little girl ….

And threw in an additional bag tag just for fun…

I started and finished knitting a Christmas stocking for Gabe …

I will be lining it with a Christmas fabric I picked up at Hancock fabrics.  And I will also be making another for his brother.

You can find the pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spindleknitters-stockings

I then got started on my first kitted felting project.  It was a pair of fingerless mittens that I adore.  I listed them on Etsy and they quickly sold to my dear Aunt!

I am now in the process of two more pairs.

And just today I finished another new project.

A checkbook cover…

I was debating what to do with it–keep it, sell it, etc–but I packaged it up as a surprise gift instead!

OH! And how can I forget the purple hats!  You already saw the finished project but I will include them again and check it off my list…

And the big project I tackled for church.  Easily the most fabric I have ever sewn with at one time…

Lastly, before this heat wave struck, I made a few long sleeved shirts for the boys.  Hopefully we will be circulating them into our wardrobe again soon!

A few of Gabe modeling…

And a few photos of Nolan just to even things out.

“HONK!” yelled the dump …

He saw a puddle and he tried to swerve!

Up at a gallop ran the big brown horse …

All together – one, two, three … one last push and the trucks were free!

Beep! Beep! Beep!

Beach Robe (pattern from MADE, www.dana-made-it.com)

Today starts my 30 days of creativity (hopefully a blog to come soon) and I don’t know a better way of starting than to finish a project!  I just finished creating my first beach robe for the boys, and although I was going to wait to blog about it until I finished the second one and had taken a few more pictures, I definitely wanted to share some pics and thought I would go this route as opposed to a Facebook status update.

So here it is, modeled by my Mr. Gabe!

and a few more …

and here is what it looked like laid out, prior to finishing the sash…
