i haven't even had a chance to go thru christmas pics to see what i have taken!!!
needless to say it was a great holiday with a ton of family, friends, good food, laughs, and sledding...lots and lots of sledding!!!
and with that comes time for other things....getting all my ducks in a row with my photography, crafty projects, some organizing and early spring cleaning around the house, and sewing
last night, rather spontaneously...i got the urge to sew...so in about 2.5 hours i put together a top for my daughter with a pattern i had purchased before christmas!!! well haya wore it to school today and it was so darn cute that i cut out a second one in dress form for miss d....
adorable hey??? cannot wait to see miss d's version!!! i have a couple more patterns in the mail i cannot wait for!!! you can find the pattern here
i have a list building of things i am looking forward to creating this fall/winter...
i have another katy kitty cut from this summer to sew together....jade marie was a HUGE success to the little girl who received her for a birthday this july.
i am crocheting granny squares like crazy...determined to see them become a blanket :)
i have some delicious fabric waiting on me to create...something with it!!! i have a few projects bookmarked, as well as a couple of patterns i ordered from here (tea party apron skirt, frida dress & shirt, uptown girl)
i have a reading list i would like to delve into...
and some upcoming photo sessions i am really looking forward too...
looking at my list of things to do makes me smile
what are you looking forward to doing while tucked in for winter?
it's about as far as i have gotten in learning to crochet...just not getting some of those single chain pattern for hats and scarves...i always end up with not enough or too many stitches.
i'll get there...one day...maybe :)
in the meantime, i am creating these to turn into blankets & throws. i have a few patterns bookmarked to try after this one.
it's thanksgiving weekend here in canada, we are off to my sisters for a family weekend & supper. looking forward to spending the time with family, chilling & hanging.
hope ya'll have a fabulous weekend!!!
we are past the BMX craziness, past the back to school chaos, past some photography madness (self inflicted of course, wouldn't have it any other way!!)and into hopefully some quieter and less crazy months...right? no, i haven't been sniffing adhesive...i actually haven't been scrapbooking lately. *gasp* i know, i've shocked you haven't i?? reasons?? none, just haven't.
so i could recap all that has been going on in the lute household over the last few months...but while i like to talk and am good for a good babble...i would rather you stay awake at your computers to read my posts...so, i have decided i might throw in the random tidbit from summer while moving forward onto current going ons.
remind later tho, to share the alice and wonderland party we hosted for my daughter. it was magical :)
we are off tomorrow for a family wedding in kamloops...really excited about it!!! all 5 of us are in the wedding party...so we have an insane amount of stuff to bring with us, but it's going to be fabulous!! while i am not the photographer for the wedding, (kinda hard when you're in the wedding, lol), i do get to bring my camera and photograph the event when i am not involved...really looking forward to getting my feet wet photographing a wedding. and i am looking forward to seeing my brother in law and soon to be sister in law celebrate their love <3 so in the meantime...these photo's will have to tide you over until i post wonderland or wedding photo's :)
so i hope everyone has a fabulous thursday, friday, and weekend!!!
we are also full on into bmx'ing....we love it! it gets better with each year!!! haillee wanted to try it out this year...then sorta chickened out...it's all good. i really don't blame her...that start hill is massive!!! along with the jumps!!! delainey, however still swears she is gonna bmx...as soon as she can!!! she found out that she could start as soon as she could ride a bike without training wheels. miss d immediately demanded that we take her training wheels off so she could start learning to ride without them!!!
the best part?? every day she works on her bike. yup! she has been spending too much time watching daddy, dakota and uncle rory working on their bmx bikes...that she "works" on her daily. yesterday was wash day..."to get it all clean and shiny for when i can bmx like dakota"
hope you are all enjoying your summers...i know we are :)
